The Colours of Light
Making light and the colour of light visible with painterly, photographic, and filmic means is the mission Austrian artist Inge Dick (b. 1941) has devoted her life’s work to.
At the focus of this exhibition is the fourpart “project jahres licht weiss (2012 – 2015)”. In this seasonal work, the artist explores the multifaceted nature of light in a manner that is both experimental and, in a manner of speaking, poetical. With four digital films she makes visible the changes in the intensity and the colour of light that occur in the course of a year. These digital films form the basis for the ensuing artistic selection process whose results are the photo works shown at the Lentos. The chromatic multiplicity of these works lends an immediate presence to the colour induced changes in the atmospheric mood in the course of a year, changes that are uniquely determined by the rhythm of, and the variations in, the times of day and the influence of nature.
Inge Dick is one of the most renowned exponents of Austrian contemporary art. For the unrivalled position she holds in experimental photography and film she has been awarded many prizes, such as the Österreichischer Kunstpreis für Fotografie in 2020.
