Interview: Suzanne C. Nagy

Luca Curci talks with Suzanne C. Nagy during VENICE INTERNATIONAL ART FAIR 2019 at THE ROOM Contemporary Art Space.

Suzanne C. Nagy is an environmental artist and curator, born in Hungary, living and working in New York City. She is a member of the Yale Club and is listed in the “Who’s Who,” in the Successful American Women Directory. She has a degree in economy and got a diploma for film writing and producing, studied art at the New York Art Student League between 1980-1982. She invented Transparentism in 2004, and in her work she uses a method of creating 3-D, transparent, photographic sculptures to visualize the depth and meaning of pollution. She made the non-seeable and made it seeable for the human eye. She exhibited her work all over in the USA and Europe. Transparentism is a product of our digital and technological age. Artists now have immense possibilities to experience new way of creating art. One of her signature work is LED light boxes, and LED light panels. After documenting the cause of pollution she started to work on the solution of sustainability. In 2013 she started to create three-dimensional, large scale, light panels, under the series “Sustainable Nature Solution.”

Luca Curci – What is art for you?
Suzanne C.  Nagy – For me it is a platform to use a powerful way to send out messages.

LC – What are you currently working on?
SCN – Environmental issues and oceanography.

LC – Which is the role the artist plays in the society? And the contemporary art?

LC – What is the most challenging part about creating your artworks?
SCN – Before I start working, I research on particular subjects and in the process of that I make sketches and images and then I formulate the whole visionary of the show or the exhibition.

LC – In which way the artwork presented in our exhibition is connected with the festival’s theme?
SCN – Under urban development and the future of our society, how we can secure our future for the next generation. Therefore I find very important to tackle those subject that are the most threat to our civilization like cleaning the ocean environment.
