Night & Night



1999, Gallery Sypka, Brno, Czech Rep. (with Daniel Hanzlik)

Site specific video installation at Gallery Sypka realized during an exhibition project "Work For Place -Light" arranged by the gallery.

The gallery is placed at a historical building - a former barock style granary located among the fields at the countryside. For the concept, repeating of the time cycles represented by light, we used a basic light sources - a symbolical images of Sun and Moon. These were projected in the opposite sides of the room. The Moon was a wall projection, the Sun was projected onto a large globe of diameter about 160 cm. There were three large bended surfaces coated with a glass fiber textile on the floor. These served as sort of light bearers; when walking around the reflected light from the video projections was running on the curved surfaces.
