On FERMENT by Christine Sciulli

We met at the Center for International Light Art in Unna, where Christine Sciulli currently presents her site-specific installation FERMENT for the exhibition program HYPERsculptures, open to the public from November 2022 to April 2023. She is one of the participating artists along with Squidsoup, Julius Stahl, Philip Vermeulen, and Giny Vos. After descending 10 Meters into the Center for International Light Art, we enter the dark vaulted exhibition space which FERMENT inhabits. The ambiguous cloud before us seems to be a living organism.

Bettina Pelz: NARRACJE Gdansk.pl 2009 – 2019

“NARRACJE was a new experience in Poland”, said Robert Sochacki when looking back on the NARRACJE experience over the last 10 years. He is an artist, curator and academic based in Gdansk. “As an artist and as a citizen, I was very excited to see that people came from all over the Tri-City and even further. It was an extraordinaire phenomenon to see all these people walking around at night – looking for art.”

Bettina Pelz: Ingo Wendt: Metamatische Lichtmaschinen

Entdeckungen beim Nachdenken über die Werkzeugkiste von Ingo Wendt _ Ingo Wendts Arbeiten profitieren von Lust am Experiment und von viel Lebenserfahrung, von Know-how und Freude am Spielen, von Neugierde und Weltzugewandtheit. Er arbeitet entlang der Dehnungsfugen von Tatsachen und Technik. Er sammelt Himmelslicht auf Spiegelfolie oder projiziert Schattenfiguren auf Raumwände. Zu seinen aktuellen Werken gehören ein Seifenblasen- und ein Konfetti-Projektor, ein Ornamentgenerator und ein Farblicht-Chronotop.

Bettina Pelz: Ken Matsubara: Recording with Light

Ken Matsubara applies film to found objects like a nameless book or a wooden scale, an industrial manufactured water glass or a mass-produced singing bowl, a broken mobile phone or an outdated TV. They are all small movable objects from daily life and can be found in varied contexts.
