Aldobranti shows his installation called ‘Light’s Festive Tents’, which is a strikingly beautiful, huge lightbox, suspended in the air.

About

... a light installation, found in a darkened space as a large cube, glowing from within with a blueish light. It is confidently set aginst the grain of the room and it contradicts levels by hanging a few degrees off the vertical. Cast shadows of people pass over the surface of the cube -- there is no sound. It is much larger than the viewer's height or armspan. Inspection of the under side is no more informative. It sways very gently in response to the draught of people passing.

"The uncanny movement of the shadowy figures is suggestive and evocative and, with an economy of means, brings to mind all manner of social situations involving people in space. The blue space of these shadows is equally suggestive. It creates a sublime context for our imaginations to inhabit."
