Georges Bataille wrote that there "is no better way to know death than to link it with some licentious image."
The new series of drawings, small and large-sized, signed by Zsolt Berszán, created in the time frame of 2020-2021, addresses the subject of death in terms of the remains of decaying bodies. The surface of the paper or canvas is treated as a battlefield, where the graphite completely blackens the support, indicating the idea of earth, mud, muck, and through which bodies or pieces of crushed, abandoned and decomposing bodies could be glimpsed. The artist suggests the body, hardly perceptible in the economy of drawing, as a macabre game of twists, writhing, arches and torn fragments. It is a material representation of the remains of an absent body.
