"The Avant Garde Doesn't Give Up" - Asger Jorn
'Increase your necessity so that you may increase your perception.' --13th century
Persian Sufi mystic Rumi, quoted by Bill Violaâ€¨
A Light at the End of the Tunnel is an epic video art trilogy about the human condition,
including seminal works by 30 international emerging artists chosen based on an open call
from over 200 submissions.
The concept of life, death and rebirth has followed humanity through the ages as the self
and the collective whole passes through time, creating a relative chain of events that
could be called the history of universal human experience. Its through all of these
varying histories, and a perpetual creative avant garde that continue to seek a move vivid
understanding of the interconnectedness of life. Our great quest to solve the questions of
our age could be exemplified by one of humankinds greatest achievements at CERN Labs,
Large Hadron Collider in Geneva, the worlds largest machine. As the scientists at CERN
continue to probe the most fundamental questions of life and the origins of the universe,
we seek artists that are asking similar big questions in their creative practice and use
their creativity to reveal the world in new and unexpected ways.
Why are we here? What does it all mean? How is it all relative to art in the 21st century?
A Light at the End of the Tunnel videos will also be premeiring on the internet at
. A new intitative in collaboration with the Scope Foundatio,
Babelgum and PAM.
