Pol Kurucz: The Normals

Pol Kurucz: The Normals

The Normals is a heteroclit family of excentric women going abot their lives, free, challenging aesthetic, gender and social norms.

Pol Kurucz was born with two different names to a French mother in a Hungarian hospital. His childhood hyperactivity was treated with theater, and theater was later treated with finance. By 27 he was a manager by day and a stage director by night. He then went on consecutive journeys to Bahrain and Brazil, to corporate islands and favelas. He has sailed on the shores of the adult industry and of militant feminism and launched a mainstream money making bar loss making in its indie art basement. Then he suddenly died of absurdity. Pol was reborn in 2015 and merged his two names and his contradictory lives into one where absurdity makes sense.

Today he works on eccentric fashion, celebrity and fine art projects in São Paulo and New York. His photos have been featured in over a hundred publications including: Vogue, ELLE, Glamour, Marie Claire, The Guardian, Dazed, Adobe Create, Hunger, Sleek, Nylon, Hi-Fructose, Galore. Pol’s works were exhibited worldwide in 72 galleries and cultural events in 2018 including: Juxtapoz Club House (Art Basel Miami), ArtExpo NYC, Red Dot Miami, Lincoln Center NYC, Shanghai Fashion Week, New York Fashion Week, Superchief Gallery Miami, Lumas Galleries worldwide, Democrart Galleries in Brazil and Pica Photo shows in China.

Glam Jail: Franco-Brazilian tale by Pol Kurucz

Glam Jail is a Franco-Brazilian tale by photographer Pol Kurucz about 11 eccentric inmates transforming a prison visitor’s booth into a colorful fashion haven.

Through visual allegories and pop aesthetics the photographer challenges social and racial norms symbolized by the carceral universe. The shootings took place in the Offen Studio in Sao Paulo in August 2017. The series features local models, celebrities and dresses exclusively from local fashion brands.

He then went on consecutive journeys to Bahrain and Brazil, to corporate islands and favelas. He has sailed on the shores of the adult industry and of militant feminism and launched a mainstream moneymaking restaurant loss making in its absurdity.

Pol was reborn in 2015 and merged his two names and his contradictory lives into one where absurdity makes sense. Today he works on eccentric fashion and fine art projects from his Sao Paulo studio.
