Fiat Lux (Engl. Let there be light) consists of ‘the image’ prior to images; analog photography film beginnings, showing only the exposure itself. The work questions the presence of light while pointing out how light, or lack of it, affects the human condition and determines the limits of perception. The image is placed into the light box, an artificial source of illumination that is also used in light therapy.
Ksenija Jovišević (1988) graduated from the University of Fine Arts in Belgrade and is an alumna of Städelschule, Frankfurt am Main, class of Prof. Willem de Rooij (2015-17). Her body of work confronts the universal questions of existence in contemporary times, playing with possible answers and solutions.
