Light Art Decennial 2020-21 /

Preliminary Text as of April 18, 2020 version 2.1 by Peet Thomsen

The Light Art Decennial is ready to present itself once again. It was started in Linz, Austria by Martina Schettina and Manfred Kielnhofer. It placed its first creative mark on that city in 2010 once darkness fell.

Light Art Biennial 2010

 

This year Peet Thomsen has been asked to co-curate the festival.

As the co-curator resides in Denmark, and artworks will be presented there as well, the theme of the festival will be “Pink”

Why pink one may ask? Peet was inspired by the colors of the Austrian and Danish flag which are both red and white. A progression from this will be to mix the colors of the flags. Red + White = Pink. This is the practical explanation. There is a more thematic and philosophical reason as well, which follows below.

We are living in a time where the planet is faced with Global Warming. Since the inception of the virus on the 17th of November in Wuhan, China, the tiny Coronavirus has done more to stop global warming than politicians have done during many years of meetings. It is time to heed the message that is being sent by the little pink virus which results in COVID-19. We must listen to this warning and take care of our planet. It is important to secure the globe for future generations of children as well as other species.

In 2020 artists will use the medium of light to approach this theme. The works of art will be shown in the cities of Linz, Vienna and Salzburg. In 2021 the festival will move outside of the borders of Austria and the same works will be reinterpreted and presented in Copenhagen, Århus, and Odense in Denmark during the annual light art festival there. True to the theme of the festival none of the works will leave environmental traces. In keeping that same approach the power for the festival will come from renewable energy sources. The only lasting impression we want to leave are inspirational thoughts and memories. .
We hope you will enjoy experiencing the festival as much as we have enjoyed making it. 




Sponsers of the festival are proposed to be:
Artpark AT
Black Box Gallery DK
Kunstradln AT
