Isengart brings together a Budapest series of new iron works, ceramics and objects by Martin Chramosta. Sober iron compositions teach us about public functions, in anticipation or memory of an existence as a facade decoration or ornamental fence. Meanwhile, small, almost theatrical scenes take place inside the formalistic structures. Something is being rehearsed, negotiated, overthrown. Under remnants of paint, the iron murmurs the names of the places where it has already lain.
Isengart is the residence of a devious sorcerer. A high tower visible from afar - a place of refuge from High Fantasy. Weatherproof, pockmarked sun-fire glaze yellow lashes the faces of small houses. A proposal for an outdoor furniture stands in the midst of the room.
