Eigenlicht at re|space gallery
For immediate release
The group-show Eigenlicht will open at re|space gallery on the 17th of September 2021. The exhibition will show works by the artists Aline Schwibbe, Deborah Wargon, Janina Brauer and Paula Krause.
The term ‘Eigenlicht’ (which translates to ‘intrinsic light’) is a generally outdated scientific term used to describe the shade of dark grey seen in the absence of light. The absence of light encourages moments of introspection, remembrance and dreams. The works exhibited in Eigenlicht relate to the concept of the subconscious in unique ways. Whether it be by drawing from dreams or from memories (both individual and collective) the works explore a type of knowledge that is gained in moments of introspection - moments in which one’s eyes see no more than the dark grey of ‘Eigenlicht’.
