A MONUMENTAL LIGHT SCULPTURE FOR THE WELLBEING SUMMIT
Curated by Manuel Bagorro, on view June 1st – August 30th, 2022
Arriquíbar Plaza, 4, 48010 Bilbao, Bizkaia, Spain
On June 1st, 2022, we’re launching SCIENTIA, my latest project in Bilbao, Spain, for the Wellbeing Summit.
The Wellbeing Summit for Social Change will take place from June 1st to June 3rd, 2022. The Summit is a unique opportunity to connect and discuss social change, government, arts, and business leaders working at the intersection of social change and inner wellbeing.
SCIENTIA is a Latin word meaning knowledge, experience, and expertise. It implies a socially interactive activity; the seeking and sharing of knowledge. This monumental sculpture will explore the human connection using our understanding of the world—fire, water, earth, and light. Through this primordial immersion, SCIENTIA provides a means of accessing our emotional selves that nurtures wellbeing and promotes community engagement.
All my best,

Portrait and Interview by Tatijana Shoan “There’s a certain Slant of light” is the first line of a poem of the same name written by American poet and writer Emily Dickinson back in 1861. The poem likens winter sunlight to cathedral music and considers the spiritual effects of the light. Light has been a theme throughout history for poets, writers and artists, and Peruvian-American artist has taken this theme to an experiential level. More than using light to illuminate her work, light is her main medium, which she controls through a complicated and intricate proprietary computer system that allows her to choreograph rays of light in various color hues to hypnotic music. This interdisciplinary artist is known for her large-scale light sculpture installations that incorporate elements from sculpture, video, drawings, printing and technology to create site-specific installations that engage architecture and captivate viewers. Amorós’ ephemeral and transcendent works reflect her Peruvian heritage and the communities where the artwork lives, and aims to bring communities together and build a bridge between the past, present and future. Grimanesa Amorós “LIGHT IS EPHEMERAL, AND I LOVE THE FACT THAT EVERY PERSON CAN CONNECT TO IT—PEOPLE HAVE A RELATIONSHIP AND ATTACHMENT TO LIGHT.” Grimanesa Amorós As If Magazine Issue 18 featuring Naomi Watts, Dominique Fishback, Jennifer Sears, Rainsford, and Richard Butler.
