“The light that I feel is originally an outdoor multi-screen film installation unveiled in 2014 on the small island of Sandhornoy in Northern Norway. Yang Fudong made the film in situ, filming for a month on the island, employing local dancers to perform in it and editing it at the Nordland College of Art and Film, Kabelvag”
The light that I feel series refers to an eponymous film shot during the summer 2014 on the island of Sandhornøy in Norway where Yang Fudong directed local actors and dancers. The Light That I Feel was first shown in situ on eight screens arranged within an architectural structure purposely built for the occasion on a beach on the island. Influenced by Ingmar Bergman’s work, this project enabled Yang Fudong to direct European actors for the first time in a magnificent Scandinavian landscape. The artist seeks to show how the wind and trees can express a narrative. As in many of his films landscapes play a paramount role equivalent to that of the protagonists.
