Květoslava Fulierova’s archive inhabits approximately two built-in wardrobes in her apartment. The archive is distributed in various cases, many of which are empty chocolate boxes. Květa’s archive has thematic categories (in addition to the chronological division); themes such as work with amateurs, travels, exhibitions, family life etc. Whilst her partner Július Koller collected the ephemera, Květa would come home with heaps of photographs, which would not only end up in the family photo album; they would later undergo Július’ post-production.
For Květoslava and Július documenting the banal, ordinary moments of everyday life became a favored practice. The more ordinary the situation, the more exalted the formal administration became. By collecting information from all sorts of trivial everyday objects (tickets, telegrams, newspaper clippings), and sorting them by theme Koller creates an archive, which he uses as a source, while leaving a message to his “ideal audience”. He also post-produces other quotidian objects, as well as Kvetoslava’s photographs: captured spontaneous moments, such as their grandchildren at play.
The exhibition is part of OFF-Biennale Budapest Check Your Head! project.
