A Scoop of Light: TOKAS Creator-in-Residence 2021 Exhibition
This event has ended.
The artists in this edition became involved in the program and participated in the exhibition based on different conditions and circumstances limiting movement and physical exchange. By setting their sights on social realities, and shedding light on them, the artists strive to discover what is actually happening in the world that we live in and how we might confront it. When we listen closely to the voices of people in different societies, their myriad experiences, which have led to various realizations about their surroundings, can provide us with new illuminations when they are presented in the form of an artwork.
These “scoops of light” help us visualize a world that we have previously overlooked, presenting it as a single entity without divisions or clear borders. It has always existed but has not been caught by our eyes. This fact rises up like a glimmer of dust, catching the light as it floats through the air, making us aware of our surroundings.
