2010, Modern Art Gallery, Ekaterinburg, RUSSIA
This luminous artwork makes the paintings shimmer, transforming the museum into a place of experimentation and a medium for visual attraction.
The light marks out a space, and this interior space evokes the exterior; the artwork becomes a volume. The gallery, an interior space, is turned towards its own exteriority like a spatial paradox. A movement of space: the light installation and artwork opens the space out into a new space, that of the “electric landscape”. The inside space of the museum projects its own landscape.
The museum seems to become two spaces: a place for the presentation and exhibition of paintings, and an experimental place for the projected light that envelopes it.
The lighting system creates a sense of instability in the building, where the light phenomenon seems to become more intense in the centre. The appropriation of the museum by light transforms into an electric landscape.
