What is darkness exactly and what can we “see” when it’s dark? Maybe much more than when the light is blinding us?


The exhibition traces the process of seeing in the dark. The works take the recipient into spaces of darkness, such as hidden architectures or remote, abandoned places. They also let the viewer plunge into avoided psychic spaces like emotional states of fear, loneliness and despair. Above all the artworks concordantly mark a transformational moment in the perception of darkness. Conventional associations of darkness and its allegories, as bundled in the vanitas, are confronted with new aesthetics that allow the recipient to recognize:

 

“the darkness does not exist. In reality, it’s just a word we are using to describe the absence of light.” (Albert Einstein)
