Lisbon, Galeria Millennium, from September 16 2015 to January 9 2016
In occasion of the International year of Light, proclaimed by UNESCO for 2015, Axo Light is a partner of the “Within Light / Inside Glass” exhibition. Light as opposed to darkness and as a source of consciousness. Glass as a light-like material, that can shape it with reflections and refractions. A medium that places visible and invisible in contact, highlighting the light and elevating it to art. Promoted by Vicarte (“VICARTE – Vidro e Cerâmica para as Artes”) and curated by Francesca Giubilei, the exhibition presents the works of 15 international artists who explore the mutual influences between light and glass.
The collaboration between Axo Light, Vicarte and the artist Richard Meitner developed over the course of these two exhibitions. Art and design join forces in a special project in which the artist developed seven prototypes of luminous sculptures, bringing together the technologies and processes connected to the industrial design of Axo Light and the experience and research of Vicarte in the use and processing of glass. As is often the case, art and design are mutually influenced and, as if by magic, they come together in an enchanted space that Axo Light aims to build and develop.
