Gstaad Iglu 9
Light art as a part of the art world had its golden age in California in the 1970s, inspiration behind these rooms is from the pioneers such as Robert Irwin. Light art is often site-specific, tied to architecture and the essence of the location. Similarly, the art in the igloo could only exist here, in this space, light and shadow, sculpted of snow and ice. Light art back in the day was based on the use of fluorescent or neon lights.
This room has more of an architectural point of view with lights hidden behind the structure. Text on the wall encourages viewers to look and to reckon what they are looking at.
