Marko Batista: Anychrome
24th May–19th June 2021
Anychrome is a collection of light objects that serve to create an imaginary illusion of science fiction archeological finds from the time of two great world catastrophes in 3307. The archeological expedition was led by a renowned professor from the Moscow University Olga Kazakova, while the artist merely documented and restored the luminous archeological finds. In fifteen years, fifty square kilometers of the site have been explored, and many objects have been discovered to help us shed some light on the true image of that time. The Lighting Guerrilla festival is thus exhibiting the first part of the international exhibition of light objects created by a civilization from the Anychrome area as the project brings insight into the reality of life within starfaring hubs deep in the Kamnik-Savinja Alps.
