Jeg flager med i Lk-kunst både i Galleriet og Atelieret. I dag har jeg sat ready made lysskulpturer op i begge vinduer på Bogholder Alle til ære for alle der er døde af corona og "Song for Sickness" der lyser til 31 maj. Hvide Engel flager med. Lad os sprede budskabet.


"Anyone who has a window and wants to engage can put something up. It’s meant to be a really hopeful gesture"

Jonathan Sims


With the closure of art spaces around the world, Flux Factory alumna and Director of the Center for Holographic Arts, Martina Mrongovius, launched the festival Light Windows as a way to bring art into the streets. Using various forms of projection, artists have installed illuminated artworks in windows around the world.


At the Flux Factory building in Long Island City, the gallery windows are lit by current Artist-in-Residence Jonathan Sims' new work Song For Sickness, a meditation on "the complex relationships every human being experiences with sickness."


Thank you to New York Post writer Hannah Frishberg for covering the festival and highlighting Jon's work. Click here to read the full article.


The front of the Flux Factory building. Two blurry people walk by on the left, and Jonathan Sims' light installation A Song For Sadness is visible through the gallery windows. At the top of the frame is the heading "The New York Post," and the title "Artists fill their windows with light displays for isolation exhibit."

Song For Sickness is on view from the sidewalk every night through May 31st.
