The art works included in this exhibition are very different from one another, but they do have one characteristic in common. They report on the magic of light – to venture on a tautology: they reveal its power to reveal. The Korean artist Hwang Seontae and the British painter Ben Johnson depict interior spaces that are defined and moulded by the light that fills them. Moto Waganari’s network sculptures are penetrated by light. His figures cast shadows, doubles of themselves, against the wall. Lee Jeonglok, also Korean, uses photography to make images of trees that seem to be illuminated by the force of the life pulsing within them – trunks, branches, twigs, leaves, all ablaze with a violent life force.
