Weight of Light
Curated by Darryn Doull

Justina M. Barnicke Gallery
May 2nd to May 26th, 2018

 

The Known Effects of Lightning on the Body will be installed at the Justina M. Barnicke gallery at Hart House in an exhibition about manufactured darkness.

Curator Darryn Doull writes, "Our capacity to control light makes it an ideal medium to unlock some of the mysteries of our material world while opening vast new chambers of secrets and virtual geometries. In some instances, flickers of light enable an approach to the unconscious or unlock a latent atheistic spirituality that permeates images of light and the vanitas of its eventual dimming, while at other times, artists unlock expansive spatial dimensions that exist at the edge of the visible world, occasionally broaching wondrous indulgences of mild hallucinations. The exhibition Weight of Light is a site to appreciate how light projects meaning into darkened volumes and to revere a darkness that helps one to see deeply."

Small vibrations from sound transducers respond to the music, and are perceivable in your back, arms and legs.
