The Light and Shadow Salon Presents


curated by Papay Gyro Nights
Papay Gyro Nights Art Festival has originated from the folklore, traditions and landscape of Papay - a small and remote island in the North Atlantic and taking place around the first full Moon of February. Since 2011 Papay Gyro Nights hosted 6 editions in Papay, 5 editions in Hong Kong and touring and exchange programmes in Europe, which are generating artists and ideas exchange, new works production and art archive and collection.
This year Papay Gyro Nights are launching Nomad's Museum - a journey to present Gyro Nights collection, to meet new artists and projects and to create new collaborations for the future.

The Light & Shadow Salon is a place for artists, writers and audience to meet and share ideas about the past, present and future of the moving image in all its forms.

The Salon is a place for exchange, interaction and cross-pollination and it welcomes active contributions and interventions from all its participants.

The Salon endeavours to support a structured and informed dialogue around film, the moving image and all that it involves: from magic to science, from sound to the eye, from ritualism to storytelling, from myth-making to hypnosis.

The Salon intends to act as a temporary and ephemeral container  for all the work, ideas and people with an independent, radical and idiosyncratic nature, who renounce to find a home in existing movements/institutions but rather embrace the nomadic and transitory nature of art.

The Salon supports individual thought, inquisitive minds and a desire to further knowledge through dialogue and exchange.

‘So when you hear yourself invited to ‘see’, it is not the sight of this eye (of the flesh) that I would have you think about. You have another eye within, much clearer that that one, an eye that looks at the past, the present, and the future all at once, which sheds the light and keenness of its vision over all things, which penetrates things hidden and searches into complexities, needing no other light by which to see all this, but seeing by the light that it possesses itself.’ (Hugh of St Victor)
