Ljubljana, various locations
OPENING: Thursday, 21. May 2020, at 21.30 (Match Gallery) // until 20. 6.
Theme of the upcoming edition of the Lighting Guerrilla Festival, dedicated to the exploration of light on the field of contemporary visual art, is Five Elements. Concept of the festival is based on the ancient tradition of four elements (water, air, earth, fire), upgraded by the introduction of the fifth element, which represents unique addition to the material elements. Five elements constitute the totality of material and spiritual experience of the world and the fifth element remains undefined – it becomes a sorf of a floating signifier, whose only characteristic is overcoming materiality and focusing attention on everything that is invisible and at the same time indispensable for the fulness of life. On the festival we will thus present several productions, which on the field of contemporary art thematize one of the elements or all five of them, and in that way with fresh and innovative visual vocabulary explore physical and also sociological sides of the world and life.
The festival begins with an opening of the group exhibition at the Match Gallery and a serious of outdoor installations in its direct surroundings or in the city centre of Ljubljana. During the festival many events will take place, such as perfomances, projections and guided tours. The festival will end on the Museum Summer Night.
