Young artist achieving performance through boxing

What real creative freedom feels like


Performance Art

The force of a live performance is measurable only in emotions






Szilard Gaspar is a skilful young sculptor and a brilliant performance artist from the Cluj School of Art, Romania; born in 1991, the artist is also a most promising young professional boxer, successfully representing Romania in many different international sport competitions.

His specific boxing abilities allow Szilard Gaspar to pursue a very special conceptual approach in performance art, since the leading theme in the artist’s research is at this moment the nature of the struggle between human power and matter; thus, his sportive talent enriches Szilard Gaspar’s research from both a spectacular and a credible perspective.

Szilard Gaspar has been fighting against boxing bags made out of clay during his last two performances, in October 2014 at Bazis contemporary art space in Cluj Napoca, Romania and, again in December 2014 in Budapest, during a performance match organized by Flash Art Hungary.  (Adina Zorzini)
