IN SEINER AKTUELLEN PUBLIKATION „THE EPIC LOVE STORY OF A WARRIOR” ERKUNDET PETER PUKLUS DIE GRENZEN ZWISCHEN WAHRNEHMUNG UND WIRKLICHKEIT, ZWISCHEN GEGENWART UND HISTORIE. DABEI ERWEITERT DER IN BUDAPEST GEBORENE KÜNSTLER IM RAHMEN SEINES HAUPTSÄCHLICH VERWENDETEN MEDIUMS, DER FOTOGRAFIE, SEINE TECHNIKEN UM EIN VIELFACHES. ER NUTZT SKULPTUREN ODER INSTALLATIONEN GENAUSO WIE REALE SCHAUPLÄTZE, DIE ER INSZENIERT UND MIT DER KAMERA FESTHÄLT. DIESE HETEROGENITÄT DES URSPRUNGS DER AUFGENOMMENEN MOTIVE, IM WECHSEL VON REALITÄT UND KUNST, WEIST DEN BETRACHTER BEREITS AUF DIE GESCHICHTEN HINTER DEN BILDERN HIN. DIESE FINDEN IHREN URSPRUNG IN EINEM ASSOZIATIVEN GEFÜGE AUS REALEN EREIGNISSEN DES 20. JAHRHUNDERTS UND DER SPEZIFISCHEN WAHRNEHMUNG DIESER, AUS DER PERSPEKTIVE (S)EINER FAMILIE IN OSTEUROPA. AUCH WENN DABEI LEICHT DER EINDRUCK ENTSTEHEN KANN, DIE EINZELNEN WERKE ENTBEHRTEN AUFGRUND DER UNTERSCHIEDLICHKEIT IHRER ENTSTEHUNGSART UND STILISTIK EINES KLAREN ZUSAMMENHANGS, SO WIRD BEI GENAUERER BETRACHTUNG DOCH EINE EINDEUTIGE KORRELATION DER DARSTELLUNGEN IN IHRER KOMPLEXITÄT SICHTBAR. AUF DIESE WEISTE SCHAFFT PUKLUS ES UNTER DEM DECKMANTEL DER ÄSTHETIK SELBST SCHWIERIGE THEMEN ANSEHNLICH UND TEILS LOSGELÖST VON IHRER REALEN ODER FIKTIVEN QUELLE ZU PRÄSENTIEREN. DIE GESCHICHTEN, DIE SICH DARAUS ERGEBEN, HABEN SOMIT ZUGLEICH ALLGEMEINGÜLTIGKEIT, ALS AUCH PERSÖNLICHE RELEVANZ FÜR DEN BETRACHTER. AKTUELL LEBT UND ARBEITET PUKLUS IN NEW YORK, KANN SICH SEINER WURZELN ABER NICHT ERWEHREN UND ZEIGT SEINE NÄCHSTE AUSSTELLUNG IN BUDAPEST. EIN WEITERER GRUND ALSO FÜR EINE REISE IN DIE STADT AM BALKAN, IN DER DER KONNEX DER DINGE NICHT NUR BEIM BETRACHTEN VON PUKLUS‘ WERKEN SICHTBAR WIRD.
