Bright light streams from the tunnel-like immersive installation on Gerlingen’s busy Rathausplatz. With the work Terminal, Polish artist Karolina Halatek invites passers-by to take a moment to walk into a dazzling space of bright white light. Encircled by illumination, the visitors are given a chance to step out of what is known and mundane, to a new unexpected dimension of light. Pure structure transforms the perception of time and space and provides an opportunity for the audience to contemplate and focus on their own sense of self. The »Terminal« can be described as a passage, a process, yet a void filled by light.
The installation Terminal by Karolina Halatek will be opened within the framework of the light art festival ASCENTS that takes place from September 17 to October 9 in the Kulturregion Stuttgart.
Karolina Halatek is a fellow through the »New Networks« project, a cooperation of Akademie Schloss Solitude and the Center for Contemporary Art, Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw, with financial support by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw.
The festival ASCENTS was curated by Joachim Fleischer.
In cooperation with Kulturregion Stuttgart and the city of Gerlingen.
