FESTIVALUL INTERNAȚIONAL AL LUMINII DIN BERLIN PREZINTĂ GUARDIANS OF TIME (GE)

In the front of old castles, in crowded markets, or in beautiful parks, the famous installation Guardians of Time traveled to various cities in the world and was part of several art exhibitions. Created by the Austrian sculptor Manfred Kielnhofer in 2006, the art installation Guardians of Time is the most famous work of the artist fond of the idea that man is always guarded by a force stronger than humanity. Taking advantage of the silence and darkness of the night, the mystical silhouettes lit red urban are appearing in landscape to cause us an overview over the space and time and of our place in the world. The installation art was exhibited in the Venice Biennale, Berlin, Rio de Janeiro, the US, Denmark, Istanbul, Dubai etc.
