We Rise by Lifting Others by Marinella Senatore
Part of Winter Light at the Southbank Centre, London SE1
ICI London is delighted to support Marinella Senatore’s large-scale light sculpture inspired by the southern Italian tradition of illuminated decorations.
Part of Winter Light, the free exhibition of illuminated outdoor artworks created by ten contemporary artists, each using light and colour in playful ways, but at the same time exploring topics at the forefront of society, such as individual and collective identity, the environment and technology.
Marinella Senatore’s work We Rise By Lifting Others was handcrafted in Apulia, Italy. Senatore places social connections at the basis of her work and focuses her research on activation, stressing the power of art to start a process of individual and collective emancipation. Of working with light, she says ‘it can prove to be a tool for narration and poetic creation, as well as for resistance and cohesion.
Free admission. All details HERE
Marinella Senatore (b. 1977 in Campania, Italy) trained as director of Photography at the National Film School in Rome. She designs large-scale light sculptures for public places, museums and festivals worldwide. Known as luminarie, they are significant for their catalytic power – ephemeral structures creating temporary spaces for rituals and socialisation.
