Spatial Illumination :
9 Lights in 9 Rooms

Category : Arts/Performances
Period :   Jan 01, 2016 ~ May 08, 2016


D MUSEUM presents ‘Spatial Illumination – 9 Lights in 9 Rooms’, an inaugural exhibition introducing ‘Light Art’ by leading international artists, from 5 December 2015 to 8 May 2016. The exhibition is comprised of nine separate rooms containing artworks encompassing a variety of genres, including installation, sculpture, video, sound and design. Arranged in the form of a progression from observation of pure light to direct experience of spaces designed to stimulate the senses, the nine works here all take light as their material, using it in a variety of forms and expressions and in combination with other sensory elements such as color, sound and movement. Light is thus expanded into a medium of diverse properties.


Participating in the exhibition are Carlos Cruz-Diez, one of the world's foremost light artists; Cerith Wyn Evans, a leading figure in British contemporary art; Erwin Redl, whose work has been featured at Whitney Biennial; Paul Cocksedge, who has achieved renown through collaborations with the Victoria & Albert Museum, Flos and others; Flynn Talbot, Philips' Young Lighting Designer of the Year in 2010; Olivier Ratsi, a leading audio-visual artist at Nuit Blanche, one of Paris' top contemporary art festivals; Dennis Parren, creator of Vitra Design Museum's CMYK Lamp; Russia-based creative group Tundra, whose works have appeared at numerous interdisciplinary art festivals worldwide; and emerging Danish design duo Studio Roso.
