Lighting Guerrilla: Movement
Lighting Guerrilla is turning on the lights in different public spaces for the sixth consecutive year already. Parks, streets, galleries and cultural centers for a few weeks yearly beat to the rhythm of lights of this festival, which is every time dedicated to a certain topic. This year it revolves around Movement.
The artists are exploring the interaction between movement and light in relation to space and also to the spectator as a co-creator.
Light is a part of everyman’s everyday life, but also a source of infinite ways of expression. A part of our everyday lives is art as well. Due to the fact that both are omnipresent in our lives, they are taken as granted and their value is often unrecognized. No life is possible without light, and art is an essential part of life, therefore they are both priceless. Art must be defended from the egos of those that govern, from their ignorance, bitterness and fear of the individuals.
The Match Gallery is the center of this year’s happening, featuring new productions and artists’ tandems. Damijan Kracina and Sašo Kalan with their ambiental installation called Drilling are going to spin the whole space of the gallery into a wild vortex of light and sound, pulling inside everything and everyone present. Visual samurai NatanEsku and master of audio skills Schatzi are going to use their Die Maschine to carry out an experiment of interaction of both types of undulations. Matej Stupica and Staš Vrenko are inviting you to make use of their apparatus called Organ Found Sound Ism to produce your own sound and lights, while Vitja Balžalorsky will be playing that instrument on the 31st of May. Damijan Kracina and Vladimir Leben with their project 2Br are going to create a new habitat that fits nicely in the world of dark depths in a circular panorama. Neven Korda with his installation Preprosto lepo (Simply Beautiful) is going to de-construct the term "video" into physical realities that comprise it.
