Miklós Onucsán works in a rigorous (post-)conceptual vein, combining a broad spectrum of media, such as installation, text, object, photography, video and process art, interventions, actions, found objects and situations. His works aim for an apparent exhaustive systematization of the world’s phenomenal reality into ideas and structures of thought uncovering processes and possibilities that usually remain unobserved or unexplored. But, paradoxically, they materialize in concrete forms that are lacking in emphasis, often employing modest materials and a self-assumed stance of the artist-as-observer.
Miklós Onucsán was born in Gherla, România, in 1952 and he is currently living and working in Oradea, România. His works have been presented at the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, 2019, Art Encounters Biennale, Timișoara, 2017, Dallas Biennial, 2014, Intense Proximity - La Triennale 2012, Palais de Tokyo, Paris, 2012, Romanian Cultural Resolution – Documentary, The New Gallery of IRCCU, 54th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, 2011 and the 48th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia, 1999.
