THE FOSSIL LIGHT

 

If you watch the trillion lights you see at a clear night, you are able to see the lights of stars that are already long gone. These are known as fossil lights. The fossil light for the artist is `the idea` in which he gets illuminated or inspired by. The artworks you get to see are the materialization of all these ideas. But what if the spectator is able to see a glimpse of this light, would it bring a deeper meaning and will it enlightens the way we look at art? This exhibition is about seeing the ideas and meanings behind the art. It is about discovering the fossil light in every work.
 

 Presenting 11 artworks about the philosophy of fossil light
by 10 artists of the art collective The Artheists.
