Lisa Kereszi : Fun and Games - surreal views behind nightlife hot spots, a limited edition publication!

Lisa Kereszi has created a new one off piece. Her book is named after the Jersey Shore Arcades – an amusement arcade in New Jersey – and an ancient Roman saying: It’s all fun and games, until someone loses an eye." Her pictures expose what most would choose to ignore.

She wishes to show what goes on behind the scenes. In strip clubs, ghost houses, night clubs, bars, places of fantasy and entertainment. She shoots nightlife districts in the daylight and highlights their bizarre, spooky effect. Her exposures almost seem surreal, she places seemingly unimportant details in the foreground: a flaw, a tear, dirt or a crack.

When she finds her motifs, they have a documentary aspect, however they are coloured with emotions. She consciously decides against depicting people – after all, her finds are what people avoid, decline and ignore.

Lisa Kereszi's publication documents her self described obsession. The Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum and Museum of Modern Art in New York all share her passion and have taken up her pictures in their permanent collections.

In any case, speed is of the essence! ! "Fun and Games" is limited to 750 copies worldwide.
