Jankovics Marcell’s exhibition talks about that ancient and sacred kingdom that is an accepting area by nature and the home of all the people living there. About the nation that first sounded the freedom of religion. It talks about the nation that greets and teaches its brother nations in their native language. It talks about a common homeland, a multilingual nation for which blood was shed for thousands of years to protect Christianity and culture. About a place of unity between sky and earth where ancient principles were brought by angels to enforce them according to the wish of the Holy Crown in a way that God and people like.
This Creative holy covenant that follows the order of nature has been fighting for thousands of years and has resisted to the destroying force which aims to rule the world. The Hungarian nation - sometimes in exile and decreasing in number - proudly undertakes its mission and bears its fate for its homeland, its faith and its freedom. And it wins, like thousand hundred or hundred years ago, as the conquerors - unable to create - use their puppets only until they can take advantage of them.
Yes, it wins, because the nation that was sentenced to death and was crucified in Trianon a hundred years ago has already resurrected. It resurrected to save our world, Christian faith and European culture. And, as always, it will win again since it received a crown to win here in the heart of Europe altogether with the ones who share its fate. With the ones who arrive and show their repentance over their past so we can forgive each other.
The exhibition symbolizes this covenant: horizontally the flow of history and vertically the holy alliance between sky and earth and between Nature and God. It visualizes a many thousand years old tree with sixty-four strong branches, under which we live. Sometimes deceived, sometimes holding together against each other or against the world’s order, but never making a mistake when deciding between life and destruction. As a mother-nation we wait everyone under this tree, to make Father Pio’s words true to everyone: “I envy Hungarians as great happiness will bless the human kind by them. Rare is the nation which has such a powerful guiding angel as the Hungarians, and it would be just right to ask for more powerful shielding over their country.”
