Obscura Luz


Galería Luisa Strina

São Paulo, Brazil

Obscura Luz (Obscure Light, 1982) consists of a white box installed on the wall with a side flap onto which the shadow of a light bulb is projected. In this singular work, Cildo Meireles creates a paradoxal situation, inverting the logic of perception by presenting a light source which is simultaneously shadow. The homonymous exhibition on view at Galeria Luisa Strina from 16 July takes this work by Meireles as a starting point to bring together a group of works by artists from different generations that deal with physical and symbolic aspects of light and shadow.
