VILTIN Gallery closes the season with Zsuzsanna KORODI’s debut featuring her most recent works from the Led series. The different spatial effects and virtual motions are unfolding in these pieces by changing our point of view. The vibrant, repetitive surface of the glass reliefs are composed by the vertical and horizontal layers. The spectacle, the motion and the geometry of light constructs itself as an optically infinite space between the layers. KORODI builds her emblematic imagery by applying handcraft, industrial and digital technologies at the same time. Her focus lies on the intense encounter of the monochrome plane-shapes and the varied transition of the colours in the vibrant moiré effect-like virtual space. The artist researches since 2011 the inherent optical potential of the lenticular lens and combines it with the additive method of the LED screen pixels in her series. During the very consistent working process KORODI creates the lenticular glass lens by merging special technologies. She places the lens on the two-dimensional computer graphics designed by her, which comprises seven different visual effects, thus produce a complex, oscillating artwork. In her glass objects KORODI develops Victor Vasarely’s and Bridget Riley’s two-dimensional pictorial Op-art practice in a spatial way. She separates it in her computer monotype and virtually extends it in the infinite space through the lens, and stays all along between the borders of the pure optical, analogue image-space conception.
The different scale and composition of the other colorful and monochrome works in the exhibition can be seen as further parallels of the 20th century Op-art masters. Thanks to the balanced visual transition the black and white works result in neutral gray effect. Presented together with the colorful pieces in the gallery, they serve the basis of a further optical phenomenon: the simultaneous contrast.
Zsuzsanna KORODI graduated from the glass department of the Hungarian Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design in 2010. Previously she studied one semester at the National College of Art and Design in Dublin. As an active representative of her generation she is taking part in the national and international art discourse since her academic years. Beside numerous private collections, KORODI’s works are included in the collection of the Ernsting Glass Museum, Lette (D) and the Hungarian Museum of Applied Arts.
