Light Interventions by Said Dokins
The multi-talented Mexican artist is presenting his latest calligraphic based project in Europe over the summer. Said Dokins is widely known for painting large scale symbolic murals which makes this exhibition pretty special. Heliographies of Memory, a series of calligraphic actions where, instead of brush and paint, he uses light to do interventions in landmarks and historical sites in cities around the world. He’s going to be here from July to September participating in exciting events, such as the Ostrale Biennale in Dresden, the third largest exhibition for contemporary art in Germany.
‘In my daily creation, the city is my main focus of action, because I find in the street countless levels and mechanisms to operate and interact with people; I use various forms of graffiti, calligraphy, performance, installation, intervention and video art’. Said Dokins
