Light Attack
Lighting Guerrilla
Sound, Ljubljana – various locations, Novo mesto
27 May – 18 June 2011
Light is a part of our everyday reality. The same goes for sound. We would therefore like to invite you to discover the ways in which these elements cohabitate in the city and explore the synergies between light, sound and public space together with international artists. We challenge you to touch and play on the objects in the Vžigalica Gallery to co-create light– and soundscapes; We challenge you to create the miniature shadow theatre at the Trg francoske revelucije; and we challenge you to use your voice to change the appearance of the façade of Cankarjev dom.
The artists will use their works to uncover the relationship between light and sound in artistic installations, buildings and spaces and the relationship between the artistic light installation, space and visitors. By placing these projects in the open, we want to create temporary new dimensions of the public space, and entice you to a creative and critical attitude towards the common public space and the elements that define it, such as air, sound and art. Towards a new articulation of space!
Can sound be represented by light? What's the sound a city makes? How to use sound to influence a light image? Does a house have ears, and do the sounds it hears affect its exterior? Is there a hidden living room in the middle of the city that makes you feel away from the city bustle? Can trees use wind to become lighting sound instruments and did an undersea bell really land in a museum courtyard? What's the black cube doing on the platform? These are the questions we're trying to infect you with in this year's edition of the Lighting Guerrilla.
We also proudly report that in addition to the Faculty of Architecture, our traditional partners, other educational institutions have joined our cause: Gimnazija Koper, Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Academy of Music and the Chair of Textile and Fashion Design (FNT). We hope to infect others with the light virus next year. We also hope to be able to invite you to new locations next year.
Also not to be missed is the workshop by the Swiss artist Sophie Guyot and presentations of the authors that will be joining this year's edition.
