lights in white satin.

Sold, sorry.

antibeige goes art (again): we proudly present our next art installment (after antivirus@antibeige, featuring florian borkenhagen and burkhard schittny, autumn 2020).

‘lights in white satin’, a three city “trinissage” (mainz / frankfurt / wiesbaden, from 20.03.21). artist rainer schmelzeisen is – together with michael bleyenberg – the main representative of „luxart“ in germany. his light installations and illuminated objects shape everyday experiences in a work process that is existential to him. at antibeige we present the secular part of the trinissage: illuminated typographic objects between pop and poetry. these „illuminati“ stimulate associations, subtle and subversive at the same time. you see what you think – and so the final artwork is only created in the mind of the viewer. or, as f. r. david put it in a song in 1982: “words don’t come easy”.

also highly recommended is a visit to the other installments of the “trinissage”, including: ringkirche wiesbaden, representing the religious light, the mainzer kunst galerie for art as light(view) and the isis temple mainz for the spiritual light. especially interesting: his superimpositions of motifs by using lenticular foils in light boxes – a unique and visually impactful technique.

using the means of art to generate a light at the end of the (corona-) tunnel is part of the concept. the three-phases-three-cities idea tries to extend contact times and to prevent human aggregations – please inform yourself about opening times and hygiene measures on the locations‘ websites.
