To mark the opening of the exhibition LUX – Light Art in Ireland, join guest curator Davey Moor for an informal walk-through of the exhibition. Davey will discuss the ideas behind the exhibition and talk to exhibiting artists about their practice, their fascination with light and its special place within the canon of art history.
LUX is a group exhibition of sculptural and installation works that use artificial illumination as their primary medium. The participating artists are five of the finest practitioners currently working within this field of artmaking in Ireland.
As an artistic medium, light is perhaps the purest and most essential. Most art relies on its environment for its illumination – for the very fuel of vision. On the whole, light art sets its own parameters, using as it does the primary building block of sight, and affecting the space around it accordingly.
Featuring artists: Helena Hamilton / Kevin Killen / Helen Mac Mahon / Lorraine Neeson / Margaret O’Brien
