Essen Light Fes­ti­val

Discover the Magic of Light

#6 Glimpse | Light Installation

Silviu Ciora, Romania

The precise light sculptures in perfect proportions, light and yet strongly conceptualised, remind us of paper aeroplanes from our childhood, a time of lightness and the urge to discover. It is precisely this lightness that the Romanian artist Silviu Ciora wants to remind us of with his light installations, each three metres long, and he has created fascinating, somewhat futuristic-looking light sculptures. His works borrow from the sculptors of the so-called concrete art of the 20th century, whose main focus is on pure geometric forms and physically simple scientific relationships.

Playing time: from dusk till 10 pm

Location: Kettwiger Straße

Artist info

Silviu Ciora

Silviu Ciora has a and M.A. and B.A. in Fine Arts, Sculpture Department, and is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Art and Design in Cluj-Napoca, Romania. In the last four years, he has been able to gain a lot of experience in the field of art in public space. His works are always an exploration of the material and the particular surrounding space. This is the approach of a classical sculptor and this makes his works as a light artist particularly interesting. His works are light sculptures that carry colour and luminous plasticity into the public space.
