On the island of Sandhornøy in northern Norway, where mountain and ocean meet, Chinese artist Yang Fudong had lived and shot for two months to create "The light that I feel". The artwork unveils its brilliance where the grand, gentle, and yet poetic cinematic language counters Arctic scenery in an extraordinary way. The light he felt was not only the aurora, the scenery, but also the beautiful impression staying in his heart. 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. Yang Fudong shows a sensitive and responsive approach in his work; his films touch upon questions around identity connected to history and heritage and the existential challenges of contemporary life. His grand, slow and poetic cinematic language will counter the natural scenery on the Arctic island in an extraordinary way.
