...the little structures will remind you of every last thing: foreclosed houses...the Olympic stadium in Beijing...the Colosseum, the crumbling ruins next door to the Colosseum. Each building maps a path through Tihanyi's mind, and yours. You visit every teeny room...climb every ladder...Then you return to your big self, looking down on layers of sheen and pale color emanating from the surfaces, as if layers of translucent skin have been laid on top of flesh. How could you not love these? — Jen Graves writing for The Stranger
Art critic Jen Graves (a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize ultimately won by Inga Saffron) reviews the tiny building-like constructions made by artist Timea Tihanyis. But while architecture aficionados will find these little structures initially reminiscent of 3D printed models, their laborious, fragile craftsmanlike construction reveals them as being made of Merleau -Ponty's "the flesh of the world". In other words (fighting words?), revealing them to be much more like architecture.
