Anthony McCall. Light Sculptures

Photo: Marcos Morilla

This monumental installation was conceived specifically for exhibition room 1B at the Art Centre for the exhibition Noches eléctricas [Electric Nights]. Since the beginning of the 1970s, Anthony McCall (United Kingdom, 1946) has been using film to create animated light sculptures that bring to the cinema the aesthetical principles of Minimalism: in an exhibition space saturated with smoke, the light beam creates an ethereal volume. His early work, produced with 16mm film, consists of simple geometrical shapes that are all stemming out of the form of a cone. Since the early 2000s, McCall started to use digital tools to engineer more complex shapes. Also, the duration of his pieces has been extended and the projections are now vertical —from the ceiling to the floor— in this way enhancing the architectural quality of his work.
