Krištof Kintera / My Light is Your Life — Shiva Samurai
In the light sculpture My Light is Your Life — Shiva Samurai, he ironically treats the sacral and central role played by energy and light. This supernatural hero in the tradition of Arcimboldo was the outcome of his long-term fascination with electrical energy.
It consists of 250 table lamps shielded by translucent globes and neon tubes. This being of light whose notional head is decorated with a halo, has been given the form of an electric saint of our times. He is composed entirely of lights pointed at the viewers, partly dazzling them and giving out heat. Kintera raises the issue of sustainability and the use of energy from a long-term perspective — an existential issue that is growing increasingly important.
