Peter Kovacs, known as KoPé, shows us an alternative version of Budapest. His "Alternative Budapest" exhibition, is based on a simple idea: shots of iconic places of the capital, with some fantastic motifs from popular science-fiction and catastrophe films but also well-known motifs from pop culture added to them. The photomontages include zombies,sharks and giant snakes swimming around in the Danube, Transformer protecting the Parliament, a meteor hitting the city, David Hasselhoff posing on his car. At the beginning, the artist took photos of famous sights of the city and shared them on his Instagram. However, he found them boring- all the photos looked the same, very tourist-like. He used his imagination then and added some sense of humour to the pictures. One of the most popular motifs on Instagram among his ideas is the Petőfi Sándor-Batman-Statue.
Another interesting one is King Kong fighting Godzilla over the Synagogue.
The author is going to continue to work on further pictures in his series “Alternative Budapest”. His works will be exhibited in Westend City Center from January 13 to February 8 and at Duna Plaza Poker Club from February.
Admission is free
