IN THE LIGHT OF MOVEMENT

“We have not to turn spectators into actors. We have to acknowledge that any spectator already is an actor of his own story and that the actor also is the spectator of the same kind of story.“

SET UP

#LIGHT – placed on the forehead of the participant

#MIRROR SCULPTURE

#SOUND – by Lucrecia Dalt

CONSTRUCTION

The mirror elements of the parabolic sculpture are able to rotate. The light hits them differently, according to the angle of incidence producing a feeling of constant change. By modifying the tilt angle of the suspended elements, the scope of the lights reflection would be altered accordingly. 

CHOREOGRAPHY OF CHANCE

"In the Light of Movement" is a performance based piece that deals with the relationship between the observer, the motion of the body and its relation to others in the surrounded space. While an ideal observer in modern physics should be one who causes no perturbations to the system being observed, quantum physics re-evaluated this rolein the 20th century. The results of any observation seemed to be determined by actual choices made by the observer. Taking this piece of information into account, this work explores the role of the observer as an active participant.

The viewer is a co-choreograph of the work, the source of light is connected his body. As the body is in motion, the light is moving over the surrounding, forming a kaleidoscopic vision that seems to move in response to that. The participation of the viewer is mobilized for the sake of constant shifting and a basically unstable experience.

According to the placement and movement, the viewer blurs the line between the physical occupation of space by an object and its ability to transform the surrounded space by the illumination of light.

ABOUT “LIGHTCRAFT 2017″

Lightcraft is back to Castelo in Lisbon. Palácio Belmonte is happy to present the work of two international artists for whom Light is a most crucial research topic and creative challenge – Anita Ackermann and Gisoo Kim.

Curated by the hosts Frederic Coustols and Maria Mendonça with guest curator and researcher Mário Caeiro (ESAD.CR/LIDA), two complementary moments establish a rare breed of a dialogical situation. This is where several instances meet: the public and the intimate, the everyday and the aesthetic encounter, the ancient and the contemporary.

Outside, German artist Anita Ackermann presents a site-specific work. Inside Gisoo Kim, a Korean, shows a series of photographs in the Palácio Belmonte Cultural Club Cafe. Both stand for highly original and deeply knowledged takes on installation and sculpture, photography and drawing, physics and poetry, proposing through this programme a mode of seeing where Light becomes what (it) is: a medium to make other dimensions of Human experience visible.
 

CONCEPT “ALCHEMY OF A DAY”

A crystalline star is in alignment with the angles of the sunlight, weaving a delicate carpet of reflections. The installation is made of reflecting elements, distributing by means of a specific folding technique the light of the place in a dynamic way.

The work is intented to stimulate an unexpected set of relations, such as with the continuous flux of people, the passing of the hours and the spatial context –  a particularly appealing portal in the core of the Old Town of Lisbon.

The crowd crosses through the tunnel engaging with their mouvement in the surrounding atmosphere. The historial resonances transforms into a lived semblance of the idea of walking through the Light. The mouvement brings together a mystical dimension with the physical tekné.
 

ABOUT THE INSTALLATION

A crystalline star is in alignment with the angles of the afternoon sunlight, weaving a delicate carpet of reflections. The installation is made of handmade reflecting elements, distributing by means of a specific folding technique the light of the place in a dynamic way. The work is intented to stimulate an unexpected set of relations, such as with the continuous flux of people, the passing of the hours and the static presence of a vernacular image of Jesus which has been in the site for centuries. The idea is to let the public experience and explore such special spatial context, a particularly appealing portal in the core of the Old Town of Lisbon.

A series of inspirations drove the spirit of the artist, leading her to articulate a complex web of ideas and images. The dazzling ceiling of the Diamond Hall in Tehran, the scientifical-religious play with the Light of the sun in the Egyptian Abu Simbel temple, the geometric laws of Light as reflected through prisms… all this in a highly participated way: the crowd crosses the tunnel engaging with their mouvement in the surrounding atmosphere. The above mentioned historial resonances transform into a lived semblance of the idea of walking accross Light. The mouvement brings together a mystical dimension with the physical tekné.
