Circus exhibition 

Trapesists, acrobats, artists, clowns, jugglers, illusionists, animals moving elegantly and talented under the leading of the trainers: artists of the colourful life of a circus. They bring celebration to the everyday life as they make the illusion, the production part of the reality of common days, as the art makes it. Their play is not always natural, even though their nature is the game. As the clown accepts his unimportance, ridiculousness, who is hiding behind his mask. He is covering something to show something else. There is a smile on his face however..
Of course the audience, who is attracted- frightened, is always interested only in the attraction coming on the stage. And not really about the background who and from where with what kind of intention has arrived there: what kind of an attraction is starting. The circus is not for those who wear the fool’s cap, but for those who pay for it. It is like this only as long as the man believes in the sense of the play.
The collective exhibition of the Jászi Gallery shows a collection of the works of great 20th century artists and contemporary artists in the thematic of circus..
