Trick of the Light

Tuesday 14 and Wednesday 15 December 2021, 5-8pm
The exhibition is free to attend.

The concept of light carries numerous symbolic connotations: purity, the afterlife, enlightenment, rationality. In art, light has been used to signify divine intervention, but also to reveal our most secret actions in a world of chiaroscuro. Light can blind us and cause optical illusions – tricks of the light. Light can play with our minds and both expose and distort the reality surrounding us.

Part of Installation and Site, this exhibition features interactive art installations by third year students from our Theatre and Performance BA and Theatre and Film BA. Through a range of media, including live performance, video, and multimedia assemblages, each work interprets the exhibition title through personal narratives, utopian and dystopian visions, inviting the spectator to take part in a performative dialogue.

Works by:

  • Riccardo Cracco
  • Elena Dubenko
  • Gala Hales
  • Magda Olchawska
  • Alex Reinbothe
  • Arian Sadri
  • Katharina Takacs
