SQUARE-ANGLE – Gábor Devecseri

The earth tilted, borders are being drawn in sharp angles by black ink, the purple shade of a scarf, perhaps, on top of the strict lines. If above me, if below, like an island in the sky. I live here. Budapest. 
A series by Ferenc Forrai.

Gábor Devecseri was born 103 years ago, on February 27, 1917. 


„Sápadt kezével int
s fellép a nyár: Napfényes délután volt,
a hegyoldal, mint tenger ékkő lángolt,
szemben is hegyek, tetejükig tört fel
a sűrű erdő ezerfajta zölddel.
A nap énekelt s egyre halkult hangja,
mulattunk: a kövek közt hogy botorkál
nagyképü cincér és földszinü hangya.
S mint megannyi bájitalos boszorkány
ültek sötétkék és tüzvörös lepkék,”

Square-angle is a symbol of togetherness. The belonging and identity of nations is presented by the unique code system of the series formed by shapes and colors through the literature of the Visegrad countries. Citizens, four times: Warsaw, Prague, Bratislava, Budapest. Four cities, four colors, one section. Making four cities of four countries four-angled; a common conglomerate.

The latest parts of Square-angle released on HYPEANDHYPER are about Budapest.
