Nagy Molnar

The Mysterlight art project, launched by Krisztián Nagy and Csaba Molnár ( Nagy Molnar) in 2020, came about after a lengthy period of technological experimentation, driven by the deep-felt creative urge bursting from both members of the art duo.

Nagy Molnar works can be regarded as a fusion of Op Art and Light Art, but as there is no standard name for it, our artform could be called “geo-optical light sculpture”.

Light is part of our everyday experience. Our existence would be unimaginable without it. As lighting technologies have developed, they have become an increasingly important and a decisive component of our lives and our living spaces.

With the help of our hand-built light objects, we attempt to shape light as a “material” into simple geometrical patterns and arrange it into complex spatial networks. Then, with the use of special glass mirrors, we place this “shaped light” into new perspectives, into “infinite space”, where it conjures up a completely different kind of spectacle and takes on new meaning. This innovative, light-based spectacle opens up a new dimension for exploring cavernous depths and vast distances, which we utilise to map out the universe of our imagination (black holes, space-time tunnels, pulsars, galaxies…).

By making light interact with the physical and optical properties of special glass and by creating different geometric shapes and spatial networks, we aim to provide observers with a new visual experience, something to contemplate that has never been seen before.

The central components of our works are the questions of physicality without space and space without physicality, the formation of virtual mass, and the use of light to render material visible (or invisible).
