SQUARE-ANGLE – Lajos Áprily

SQUARE-ANGLE – Lajos Áprily

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.

Lajos Áprily was born 132 years ago, on November 14, 1887.


„Új tél. Zsibongó, pesti tél.


Én csak a széltől féltelek,
keletről érkező vihartól,
mely felkel március körül
s feléd indul a régi partról.
Körülnyargalja telkedet,
fákon tör át és szikla-záron,
vizes felhő-rongyokba tép
s keresztül zúg a sík határon.


Maradj itthon tavasz körül,
tavasz felé ne menj a szélbe.”

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.
