Lichtspiel, or Lightplay, is a light-based show by London-based multi-platform artists Kite & Laslett. The pair trained in architecture, sound and music, and now find speciality in creating “architectural interventions in the form of interactive installations”. The show runs from now until March 10th, see below for more information taken from the press release.
In this show “light plays both a conceptual and active role in the practice of Kite & Laslett: it is a means by which to explore the immaterial through our interaction and phenomenological experience of architectural space.
“In the duo’s first solo show in Germany, their characteristic site-specific interventions in non-dedicated art spaces are narrated in a gallery environment. The artists present three installations; Candescence, Orbit and Reflex, each inhabiting one of the three exhibition rooms. The pieces are de-contextualised, presented as objects, yet they actively engage the viewer and revise our perception of the interior realm.
“In addition to the installations, Kite & Laslett present films of their works to-date and the photographic series EXP: Spiller’s Millennium Mills, their first experiments with light and space.”
