Artspace present an exhibition on the theme of ‘Seeing the Light’ at Déda Derby (Derby’s dance and performance centre) from Friday 5th January to Saturday 24th February 2018. Artists were asked to respond in their own way to the theme and with their chosen media.
Some artists have chosen to explore literal physical light in the world: how it continually changes and changes what we see, the contrast between darkness and brightness, the patterns created, and how it makes colours more vivid.
Some have interpreted ‘light’ as energy or primordial life.
Others have interpreted the theme in a metaphorical way – a desire for enlightenment and understanding of the world and ourselves.
‘Seeing the Light’, 5th January to 24th February,
