ongoing since 2020
The Archive is an ongoing and evergrowing meta-project where Hollow’s pre-existing worlds bleed into new ones. As a series of texts, objects, and performances it revolves around the inaccessibility of the future and how predictions and speculations shape the present.
It can be viewed as the continuation of Summit, a performance from 2019 where Viktor Szeri, Tamás Páll, and Gyula Muskovics foreshadowed the obscure conditions of a planetary event that radically changes life on Earth. While Summit, retrospectively titled Archive I, immerses the audience in the ultimate moment before the so-called “Future Event,” the first iteration of The Archive takes place in “the beyond”, after the inevitable end.
Archive II (The Beyond) contemplates about hope, childhood, aging, and memory in the company of specters, interwoven with unbreakable metalwebs. It was first presented as a series of online public livestream performances at Placcc Festival in Budapest, and later transformed into an immersive installation and performance in the group show titled Mine My Mind at art quarter budapest.
Created and performed by Viktor Szeri, Tamás Páll, and Gyula Muskovics
