Artist list

Adam Grinovich, Annika Pettersson
It ties the two artists work together by presenting two distinct expressions underneath a series of engineered lighting scenarios. Inspiration was drawn from the transformative power of light, how, for example, a nightclub or concert can express power and energy with the simple act of manipulating light and focus. “Strålkastare” consumes the viewer entirely, demanding a full attention to the dynamic expression of light on objects that reveal themselves underneath patterns and sequences of programmed luminescence. The exhibition, in essence, embodies its title and English translation, to throw brilliance and serves to illustrate the sublime elements of each artists work.
