ID:I Galleri Stockholm
Day and night, darkness and light, earth and air, good and evil, war and peace, dictatorship and democracy. They all stand on opposing sides of the line, which moves slowly and imperceptibly forward. Or is it only going around in a circle? Latitude, the hour hand, earth’s surface, combat line. Folding inwards, travelling towards the centre of the earth and the darkness encloses its subterranean creatures. Shadow does not exist without sunlight. The photography evolves slowly in the dark under a red lamp, only to become visible in the light. The day lily. The sunbeam dissolving an icicle.
We are four artists from ID:I who exhibit and showcase works about darkness, either as something tangible in the soil, or the metaphorical and philosophical darkness, such as war and the planet's threatened environment.
