The exhibition titled So Bright It Shut Out the Sun presents the new piece by artist Evelina Hägglund. Thirteen aluminium objects form an installation together: in the pieces Shadow of the Drone I-XII, the shadows cast during a flight simulation of a drone in the artist’s studio reach the ground as entirely material objects with their own weight and volume. The sculpture titled Overexposed Sun was made based on a photograph of the sun, in which the overexposure or the overabundance of sunlight produces an eclipse of its own image.
