The exhibition presents 15 holographic works of the Hungarian artist Mattis-Teutsch. Mattis Teutsch works with intangible material barely perceptible for a human mind; he creates light sculptures using photons and light quants. Light (or electromagnetic waves to be precise) becomes the main graphic tool for Mattis-Teutsch: he plays with it, tames it and presents three-dimensional contours of real things to a viewer. Using holography, the artist transforms light fantasies available only for our senses into fully-featured light space; he captures flitting images in static sculptural form which cannot be touched but can be viewed from all angles.

Waldemar Mattis-Teutsch (born 1950) is a renowned Hungarian artist, born in Transylvania. Worked as an artist until 1995 when he changed a brush for a laser beam to create holograms. Attended private courses on holography, in 1996 opened private holography laboratory. In 1999 created first digital hologram. Belongs to the Mattis-Teutsch artistic family, widely known in artistic circles of Germany, Hungary and Romania. His personal exhibitions were displayed in New York (1990-91), Budapest (2000), Badenweiler (2001), Győr (2001), Bucharest, Moscow (2012).
