Gelnica illuminations

Gelnica Illumination is a multi-genre festival combining digital art, lighting installations, photography, literature and music, which took place for the first time on September 9, 2017 in Gelnica. Overall, the festival offered 10 projects from young Slovak artists, including members of TRAKT Pavol Soukal and Filip Kmeť. The Black Holes exhibition brought visitors to the underground of Miner Museum. People were given helmets and mining lights and could see photos of the forgotten cultural and industrial monuments of Spiš and Gemer. Photographs from the pubs of the Hnilec Valley were presented by Dominika Čarná at an exhibition titled Inventory. Part of the exhibition included period documents from the times of socialism. Art designer Veronika Kollárová presented her work on the exhibition Bločky. People could also try drawing on heat-sensitive paper. He was also interested in the digital graffiti project (Pavol Soukal - TRAKT), as well as projection at the Baník Museum (Ľubomír Slovinský - Zapadlý KÚT) or one of the classicist houses on Luther Square (Pavol Soukal, Filip Kmeť - TRAKT). Fans of the Spišskonovoveska formation Smola and Pears have pleased the concert of their favorite musicians. The synagogue, as well as the fate of the local Jewish community, recalled the light installation of Gabrielle Lenďák and Nora Žaludeková called In the Fire.
