Presented in Collaboration with

Pace Gallery

Antenna was shown as part of a collaborative group exhibition between Pace Gallery and Athr Gallery, exploring ideas around Luminism and the affect of contained light on the dynamic relationship between the environment and our experience.

Other artists included Carlos Cruz-Diez, James Turrell, Leo Villareal, Anne Senstad, Nasser Al Salem, and Robert Irwin. Their seminal works treat light as a unique mode of immersion, with each installation composed to exceed their material, allowing a flow of transcendent effects on the viewer, to steer and expand the human consciousness.

The experiential and interactive exhibition subverted notions of light and space as we understand them, and the cross overs these may have in playing with our perceptions and psychology. Together, they explore the human visual perception, and how both light and color affect our emotions or change the way we feel within a space.
