Escape / 2015




/HU/ Bordos.ArtWorks is a pseudonym for a major Hungarian 3D artist, László Zsolt Bordos. He began as a VJ in Budapest, but soon his interest moved to grander forms. Thanks to his first large­format 3D projections, which were created fifteen years ago, and the first video­mapping project in Paris in 2007, he became a pioneer of this genre, which remains popular today. Cooperating with other artists since 2010, he started to run the projects under the name 'Bordos.ArtWorks and Invited Artists', which became internationally recognized as eminent representatives of video projection mapping. Since 2014 Bordos is focusing again on solo art projects, installations and scenery projections for theaters and opera houses.

The ESCAPE projection was created by a Hungarian pioneer of videomapping. His play of light with a facade is minimalist in colour, but unafraid of using figurative motifs. This combination of figurative and abstract elements with dramatic musical tones from the renowned Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhansson creates a unique approach to videomapping. When watching Escape viewers get the impression that the facade is transforming before their eyes into compelling humanoids, who at one point spy the viewer with unsettling glances and gaze at them suspiciously, and at another fall somewhere into the depths of space as a symbol of the fragility of human destiny.
