Antal Lakner

Antal Lakner is one of the Hungarian artists emerging in the 1990s, who have achieved international recognition. Working at the border between reality and fiction, he creates works of a subversive nature, integrating visual arts into quotidian reality, or querying the traditional approach to art objects and the monotonous rituals of audience behaviour by transforming the institutional environment. His works, with both a critical attitude and a sense of humour, have been presented at numerous domestic and international solo and group exhibitions, including major international contemporary art events, such as the Hungarian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale, the Istanbul and São Paolo Biennials, the Fellbach Small Sculpture Triennial, and Manifesta 4, held in Frankfurt am Main.
