In 2014, Hungarian photographer Gábor Arion Kudász was approached by Austria’s leading brick manufacturing company Wienerberger to realize a photo project related to their company. At first the artist, although flattered, did not consider the subject particularly exciting as far as his artistic research was concerned. However, he had to change his mind when he realized how much the brick as an object could be the metaphor he had always been looking for: it is a simple object, able to speak simultaneously of past, present and future.
When Kudász began to photograph, the objects took on the role of beautiful abstract sculptures whose edges alluded to something primitive rather than strictly utilitarian.
During the course of the project, Kudász visited a total of ten factories located in Hungary, Romania, and Bulgaria. Some of these factories operate 24/7, while others are permanently closed, but regardless of their status, the photographer approached each destination as a site of equal importance to his narrative.
