Attila Kondor is less interested in hunting for ancient motifs than in searching for chances to have cathartic experiences of unity. But rather than keeping these chances to himself, he also shares them with his spectators. Thus in his life as well as in his artistic world the three agencies of reception aesthetics – author, work and receiver – can, indeed, conjoin in a unio mystica. This indicates a typical Kondorian synthesis: the coupling of medieval mysticism liberated by Aristotelian catharsis with Gademerian postmodern hermeneutics. The result is the creation of a philosophical-aesthetic space within which the ascetic artist of life offers his own experiences of catharsis to his audiences with a disposition to deep contemplation.” − Gábor Rieder
