László Zsolt Bordos (HU)

László Zsolt Bordos creates challenging, often rigorously composed graphic light sculptures and soundscapes that often touch the visitor deeply. Light is elusive and fluid, but the spaces and buildings he projects on are massive and robust. He creates illusions of lights and shapes, letting the light steal the features of the building and vice versa. 

After his stunning work on the façade of the Stationskwartier during LUNA 2019, László Bordos is creating new work for the Palace of Justice on Wilhelminaplein for the 2024 edition. With his fascinating visual interventions, he brings the building to life and abstractly tells the story of the building, its occupants and users through the centuries. This also involves numerous the moving heads lights that, with their enormous beam power, range, and agility, provided the inspiration for the LUNA Currents themed programme. With its audio-visual power and prominent location, Bias will be a major image-defining feature of LUNA Nights 2024.

The Hungarian artist László Zsolt (1977) was born in Romania. He studied at the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts in Budapest and MediaLab UIAH (University of Art and Design) in Helsinki. His work has been shown in more than 40 countries. Since 2015, he has focused on architectural projections, object mapping installations, art exhibitions and set projections for theatre and opera. Sound was created by Ondrej Skala. Lighting programming by Gábor Bálint.
