the festival of the light art
The 21-22th of December, Ekaterinburg, 2019
In this year artists from Russia and abroad, festival participants, will leave the compact center of our city for the first time and they will go to transform and illuminate one of its remote areas - Uktus. A route of the festival will cover two spaces located at a distance of 1.5 km from each other: a nature park with a ski resort and the modern, recently built Shishimskaya Gorka quarter.
An idea of leaving the center defined the theme of the current festival, which is becoming more and more relevant every year - “Visual Ecology of New Territories”. The word “new” refers to urban spaces whose appearance is not yet complete: areas of new buildings and old “depressed” places that do not yet correspond to the overall development of the region.
Artists from Russia, Poland, Germany, Austria, Finland, Tunisia and the USA will reflect on the artistic and social power and possibilities of light, as well as on the over-illuminated public spaces.
