Bagossy Levente. Proiecte de scenografii

The Liszt Institute in Bucharest presents an original exhibition including set design sketches of Bagossy Levente, winner of the Jászai Mari award.

This exhibition includes 20 of the artist’s set design projects, presented as miniature models, from his 30 years career. Through the exhibit, visitors will find the models of set designs for performances like „Don Giovanni”, „Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme”, „Tartuffe”, „Hamlet” or „Up Goes the Curtain!”, productions of the most important theater institutions in Hungary.

The models, which are considered products of applied art, have been created by the Hungarian artist as a proposal for his performances and evoke the Guckkastenbühn miracle, through which we can follow and feel the lives and experiences of people as if we watched them though a magnifying glass.

He went on to graduate from the Hungarian Fine Arts University, the graphic design department. His first set designs, Bagossy created for the Small Theater in Pécs, and later on collaborated with theaters in Pécs, Kecskemét, Szeged șandNyíregyháza.
