House of the Nobleman is delighted to announce that it will be celebrating its 5th annual exhibition, during Frieze week and PAD (Pavilion of Art & Design), with a major display of Light Art at 12 Hay Hill in London’s Mayfair. Curated by House of the Nobleman director, Victoria Golembiovskaya, LIGHT FANTASTIC will be a dazzling presentation of art works by leading artists of the genre as well as new work by some of today’s most exciting artists, including Conrad Shawcross, Cerith Wyn Evans, Troika, Random International and Tim Noble & Sue Webster.
Throughout history, artists have been fascinated by light, its nature, behavior and transformative qualities, but only in the last few decades, assisted by vast technological developments, has it become a medium for art. Capturing the tangible and sensory nature of this natural force, light technology has allowed for the creation of a new, dynamic genre of contemporary art that has the ability to challenge our perception, stimulating wonder and serene contemplation.
Victoria Golembiovskaya comments: “We are delighted to bring together such a diverse group of inspirational artists and works which truly embrace the immersive and interactive nature of this exciting and dynamic art form. Presenting established names and works alongside fresh contributors to the contemporary art scene, LIGHT FANTASTIC illustrates the continual evolution and adaptation of technology to produce relevant, inspirational and thought-provoking works of art.”
The project will also be showcasing a new interactive light technology in collaboration with the Lighting Design Collective and will be accompanied by a program of talks, events and performances.
