Autoluminescent

Event status:

Portable Horizon Autoluminescent presents artwork by three Australian contemporary artists who work across a variety of media, yet all embrace luminescent materiality in aspects of their work. The exhibition explores the nature of visual perception, light-induced sensory experience, temporality, transformation and interplay between minimalism and monumentalism.

Autoluminescence refers to ‘the luminescence of a substance due to energy originating within itself’. The exhibition presents a range of luminescent works that either emit light or draw on available or ambient light, transforming it through processes of reflection, refraction and absorption.

Light has an inherent and unavoidable impact on our perception of space and how we measure time, its presence, absence and durational nature are experienced directly through our sensorial and bodily relationship to the material world.

Autoluminescent moves beyond the spectacle of ‘light media’ and focuses on the more subtle aspects of light as a medium: transformation, perception and embodied experiences of presence/absence, time and place. Each exhibiting artist harnesses the continuous, transient and transformative nature of light, shifting our perception from the minute to the extremely vast and back again.
