This conversation between Lili Rebeka Toth and the Hungarian duo Lőrinc Borsos (2018 RU alum) will highlight the artistic and collaborative process leading to the exhibition NARNIA IS A LIE. With this labyrinthine, atmospheric installation of multimedia sculptures overlaid with sound, kinetic, and light elements, NARNIA IS A LIE features recent work that builds on the duo’s complex, private mythology—a mythology in dialogue with digital media, electronic music culture, video game aesthetics, Christian iconography and eschatology. Curated by Lili Rebeka Toth, this show is one of eleven curatorial projects that constitute Spillover, the thesis exhibitions of the 2024 curatorial candidates at CCS Bard, including Lili Rebeka Toth.

About

In 2003, Lilla Lőrinc (b. 1980) and János Borsos (b. 1979) gave birth to their hybrid artistic identity, Lőrinc Borsos. Over the past fifteen years, their aesthetics and concerns have drawn inspiration from the duo’s various personal phases: beginning with the experience of spending eight years in a Christian religious sect and continuing with a turn to a politically engaged methodology. Followed by a self-analytical tone, their most recent works are marked by collective world-building strategies connected to video and role-playing games. Lőrinc Borsos was a resident artist in 2018 at RU.

Lili Rebeka Toth is a curator currently based in New York. She is a graduate student at the Center for Curatorial Studies at Bard College.
