| The international Lighting guerrilla festival encourages artistic
lighting objects and reexamines the
position of the artist at
urban space and consequently improving the quality of living.
This year’s theme is Recycling. Through the phenomenon of light we would like to accentuate the role of light and energy, as well as stress out the importance of preserving the environment and saving the energy. We aim to encourage a responsible participation in the field of developing creative ways of recycling and sustainable design. At the same time, we examine the understanding and relation to the recycling with general population.
The rich and varied program is, like last year, set up in the Vžigalica gallery and its surroundings, and the artists present projects which feature the recycling of different materials and ideas, light and cultural inheritance, or merely imply various possibilities of recycling.
The main program is taking place between June 15th and July 18th in Ljubljana and Kranj. The festival’s pre-opening will be held at Galerija Škuc on June 10th at 21:30 with exhibitions The Dark Room and Fringe on a Bulb.
Additional information about the extracurricular activities, art tours, etc. will be available on www.svetlobnagverila.net
Since we started conceiving this year’s program, a substantial number of associations and other cultural organizations have joined us, to whom we would like to express our sincere gratitude. An honorable mention goes to numerous artists who sent in their commissions for the Re-light! exhibition, as well as co-financers, donors and sponsors, who made this festival possible to be presented in this form. We aspire for a long and fruitful cooperation!
