Ian Whittlesea in After the Light, SixtyEight, Copenhagen

Artist Info

Sixty-Eight is proud to present ‘After the Light’, a two-person show featuring works by Danish artist Emil Salto and British artist Ian Whittlesea. The exhibition takes as a starting point Whittlesea’s piece ‘A Breathing Bulb’, which consists of a light bulb repeatedly fading up to an intense brightness and back down to black. If the work may evoke the technological evolution of light bulbs and its close history to the one of consumerism, it primarily draws upon esoteric traditions, and in particular the Mazdaznan cult in which the control of the breath was considered to be the secret for eternal life.
