The works that will be shown in the foyer of Inch Cinemas from March 23 to April 1 are “luminous paintings” painted on polycarbonate and backlit. The light, pouring through the stained glass windows, evokes the stained glass windows of Gothic churches, creating a festive and enchanting atmosphere, like the illuminations of village festivals. The works create oriental suggestions, from the Thousand and One Nights, that enchant and amaze those who look at them immersed in darkness.
