Ghost Trap

Tamás Komoróczky’s latest solo show at Galéria Neon offers to take the visitor on a psychic trip to a deeper layer of consciousness, singling out the spirit in spirituality and taking the inner soul to a totally other level. Ghost Trap combines the artist’s longstanding interest in the internet-era school of memetic thought – which is based on the study of the intra-human transmission of meme forms through stories, metaphors and networks of cultural associations – with the excavation of a variety of spiritual sources and creative research into the notion of the inner voice. Komoróczky gives us a rendezvous with the esoteric, tapping into hidden dimensions of existence whose sound is usually drowned out by the drone of the everyday, and reminding us that art does not have to be either trendy, political or commercial in order to be contemporary. Step one on this unorthodox spiritualist journey involves opening up your inner ear to the voice of shamanic wisdom that penetrates your brain through two head-level speakers exuding disembodied electronic speech. Your next move after the sound installation is to ponder the video projection on the opposite wall, which is described as a recording made with a ‘fog camera’, and is a visual equivalent to the shamanic incantations.

The fog clears in the next room, where two large wall designs represent the neural networks of the brain, and nestled within this rhizomatic structure are various scientific theories, notes and fantasies executed in silvery type. Among the many outlandish statements recorded here is the observation that we are surrounded by non-human intelligent life forms that regularly lie to us for their own entertainment. The ghost trap itself takes the form of a neon light installation suspended from the ceiling in which the Hindu word for ghost is enclosed by a circle and a triangle complete with Native-American-style shamanic feathers.
