LET THERE BE LIGHT - GROUP EXHIBITION

About

From 13th September, Gazelli Art House will unveil its latest exhibition, Let There Be Light. The exhibition will focus exclusively on artists who use light as a medium to create sculpture and installations, ranging from natural light that streams through stained glass windows to the use of neon tubing. Artists include: Sergio Calderón Stanley Casselman Vittorio Corsini United Visual Artists Aaron Koblin (in partnership with s[e]dition) Window Project: Henry Krokatsis The phrase âLet there be Light' is a biblical reference from Genesis 1:3 in which God removes darkness from the earth. For centuries it has been a motto of many universities and schools (advocating the dismissal of ignorance) as well as appearing in countless texts and novels as an appropriation for âtruth'. This exhibition, however, will allow viewers to leave behind any historical or literary associations to consider purely light itself, and its immediate impact on our time and the space around us. The intent is not to strike a particular chord of meaning so as to paradoxically cage the interpretations of a light installation. The selected artists will therefore explore the abstract relationships between light and colour or shadow and how light changes when filtered through various materials, encouraging the viewer to achieve a state of mental free fall.
