Interview: Bori and Rozi Mákó
Luca Curci
talks with Bori and Rozi Mákó during FUTURE LANDSCAPES, third appointment of BORDERS Art Fair 2020, at Palazzo Albrizzi-Capello and The ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Bori Mákó, video artist, and Rozi Mákó, music composer, are sisters based in Budapest. BORI graduated from Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in 2017 with an experimental landscape video. Since then, she has been involved in video art and digital painting and making zines and large-scale prints as well. The main theme of her exhibitions is the question of the concept of meditation and time. ROZI has a classical and jazz background as a pianist. After her graphic design studies, she moved to The Netherlands to further her music knowledge at The Royal Conservatoire of The Hague at the Institute of Sonology. She found herself doing all kinds of music-related projects: composition, sound design, installations, experimental music performances. Bori and Rozi have worked and exhibited audiovisual installations together since 2017.

Luca Curci – What are you currently working on?
Bori Mákó
– I am currently working on several projects, a large art book that will include analog photos in addition to the paintings, I just bought a camera and started taking photos, I wonder what comes out of it!
Rozi Mákó – My latest project NEST is a solo audiovisual performance where I’m using LED light tubes for my music performance, combining the features of the light and the music together. I focus on connecting with the audience through the phenomenon of music and lights to invite them into an unrepeatable moment by creating a unique atmospheric experience through improvisation.

LC – What is art for you?
RM
– When you are not aware that you are creating something unique, you only realise it when it’s ready. It could be a delicious pasta for dinner.
BM – Art, I think, is the flow experience when the viewer gets on a different rail than what it was in, like when you open a door that you don’t know what’s behind it.

LC – How is being an artist nowadays?
RM and BM
– To be visible is always a challenge, so many good artists exist and easy to lose, if you have found your voice and what you are doing is authentic, you are on the right way.

LC – What is your creative process like?
RM and BM
– It depends on the project. In our latest installation: Close Distance, the image and the sound are closely related and developed simultaneously. It was very interesting to explore when the water as the main dramaturgical element appeared in the drone music and on the projection screen as well.

LC – Which art themes do you pursue? What is your preferred subject, if there is any?
RM and BM
– Our favorite topics are meditation, the concept of space and time, the conscious present, loneliness, nature, the horizon.

LC – Do you agree with our vision of art and what do you think about the theme of the festival?
RM and BM
– Reflected on the current world situation, the concept of “borders” is even more interesting for us than ever before. It was very inspiring to participate in it.

LC – We were attracted by your last artistic production, has the artwork presented been created for the festival or as a part of preexisting works?
RM and BM
– We made it this year in spring during the first quarantine in Budapest, for Trafó House of Contemporary Arts curated by Let it Be! art agency.

– Yes, definitely.

LC – What are your suggestions about our services? Is there something more we can provide to artists?
