REDMILK SELECTED THE MOST CELEBRATED ARTISTS THAT MODIFY THE PERCEPTION OF REALITY THROUGH IMPRESSIVE LIGHT INSTALLATIONS. SEE THE WORKS BY BRUCE MUNRO, CARLO BERNARDINI AND GABRIEL DAWE.
British artist Bruce Munro was able to illuminate the bottom of the Uluru, the rocky range sacred to Australian Aborigines, known also as Ayers Rock. “Field of Light”, the project conceived in 1992 featured fifty thousand stems topped off by frosted glass spheres, connected through optical fiber, was switched on at sunset every day for a whole year – from April 1, 2016 to March 31, 2017.
Carlo Bernardini, born in Viterbo, Italy, is an Italian creative who utilizes light as the key element of his work. Light is mediated by the use of optical fiber which he has been using since 1996, creating geometrical and spatial effects, multiplying the ways we perceive reality. For as many as two editions, in 2000 and 2005, he won the prestigious “Overseas Grantee” recognition from the Pollock Krasner Foundation in New York. In 2002 he was assigned the Targetti Art Light Collection “White Sculpture” prize. He currently teaches at Accademia di Belle Arti in Brera, Milan.
Gabriel Dawe is a Mexican artist who combines the light with textiles in installations that play with color effects. He skillfully hand-weaves colored threads to create textile sculptures. His works aim at upsetting the traditional roles of female craft, like that of the weaver, escaping from any kind of prejudice.
