New video installation by Norman Rea Gallery

Posted on 5 February 2015

A new exhibition featuring the work of videographer Máté Ternyik opens at the University of York’s 3Sixty Room and Exhibition Space in the Ron Cooke Hub on 9 February.

Máté Ternyik exhibition

Curated by student Boglárka Medgyes, Fluid Dynamics will explore Ternyik’s fascination with the dynamics of fluids in how they interact, and how human behaviour relates to such physical phenomena.

Featuring two video works – Turbulence I and Turbulence II - the first will be a 360 degree projection studying the movement of opaque fluids in water, creating a meditative atmosphere. The latter shows street dancer Gábor Gágyor perform Liquid Dance, exploring how this type of dance is inspired by physics. In this work, Ternyik uses a RED Epic Dragon camera to record 150 images per second, examining how humans behave, act and react like fluids.

An opening night preview event will run from 7.00pm – 9.00pm on Monday 9 February, and the exhibition will run from 10 – 27 February 2015.

Boglárka Medgyes, Director of the Gallery and a second year History of Art student, said: “We’re excited to launch a show that takes place in two very different spaces simultaneously: Ternyik’s two video installations in the Ron Cooke Hub Exhibition Space and the 3Sixty projection room complement each other in a very dynamic way. We can’t wait to see how the famous RED camera brings Physics and street dance into a gallery.”

The Norman Rea Gallery is run entirely by students at the University of York. Situated above The Courtyard in Derwent College, the gallery hosts exhibitions throughout the year and promotes the work of both student and professional artists. The gallery hosts three exhibitions a term with lectures, seminars and events.
