Catalogue Note

"The way that these thin silver surfaces delicately capture the traces of whatever stands before them evokes photography, with its light-sensitive emulsions of metal salts. But film photography as a technology has now been surpassed by digital--just as photography itself once usurped the province of painting-making Kassay's metal coatings feel like bronzed baby shoes, elegies to an unrecoverable past. Simultaneously paintings made into memorials, sculptures that refer to photography, and abstractions that speak of the changing regimes of representation, Kassay's works, while beautiful, are also melancholic, philosophical objects" - Joseph R. Wolin (Time Out Magazine, March 19, 2009)
