Temple VIII

Georg Jagunov’s work Temple VIII, is dark, shadowy and contemplative. Biblical towers emerge like beacons from lightless scenes; the focal point evokes, but does not fully emerge as, a curved vault or dome. The ghostly structure rises from – or is layered into – an indecipherable darkness which suggests concealment, blanketing or perhaps elimination. The forms that emerge from the darkness could constitute a monument, an imprint or an alien. To these partial or emerging building blocks, Jagunov applies softly flickering lights which hint at something beyond this abandon of black. Taking inspiration from the lights on the rooftop of the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, Jagunov applies a faint flicker of light to his works of the series as testament to an evidence of life.
