Empire of Light

Dagny Hay

11th September - 3rd October 2021

Intro

Hay started her project Empire of Light in 2019 using her skills in photo manipulation and various pictorial genres as a method to explore her mediasaturated life and her own relationship with clocks, light and dark. The title Empire of Light is a direct reference to the work of Belgian surrealist painter Ren  Magritte “L’Empire des Lumières”. He created a series of paintings of this paradox, a neighbourhood at nighttime with an illuminated sky. In her very own example of Empire of Light a battle is being fought and a forced march has been undertaken by a photographed alter ego: the heroic woman Dagny Hay.
