FREE ACCESS UNTIL FULL CAPACITY
Por causas ajenas a la organización y debido a la gran afluencia de público en algunos momentos del espectáculo, las condiciones de accesibilidad física previstas pueden verse modificadas.
This edition of LuzMadrid includes a new programme called EMERGING LIGHTS, which aims to give visibility to young creators in an international environment, offering a window of opportunity to these budding lighting artists and designers.
The subject matter focuses on issues that concern them such as the climate and other more personal ones, such as the disquisitions of the mind, its motivations and longings, interior space as a vital experience and, of course, the pleasure of recreated light.
Curated by Julieta de Haro, Emerging Lights features Pablo Bordons Estrada’s light installation In-finity; Paula Cremades’ holographic installation entitled 0X1GEN0; Ángel Sevillano’s projection on the ground, Intervened Bodies; and the Galoguin y Atalanta collective who present an immersive light construction entitled Nostalgia for Distance.
0X1GEN0 is an installation, light projection and 3D modelling project that invites the public to see how the DiMad space is transformed into a greenhouse.
Paula Cremades’ work should be understood in the context of the climate crisis we are currently experiencing, which highlights the need to care for nature and the exponential expansion of the virtual world, which is imitating reality with increasing accuracy. In this context, the artist Paula Cremades decided to plant three virtual trees on the room’s barren floor. In her work, light corresponds to the sap of these trees and plays a fundamental role in their existence.
A graduate in Fine Arts and Design from the Francisco de Vitoria University, Paula Cremades studied for a year at the Brera Academy in Milan and has participated in the group exhibitions “Postatlántico” at the Galería Nueva, Madrid (2020) and “This Place Does Not Exist” at the AVAM gallery, Matadero Madrid (2021).
