Perhaps most recently best known for his “Darkened Cities” series of photographs, Thierry Cohen has been chosen as part of a special exhibit at the Lentos Kuntsmuseum in Linz, Austria.

The endless expanse of the night sky, the shimmering stars close at hand! There is no longer the dark night, the electric light has conquered her. Buildings, squares and streets are brightly lit at night. The lights of the big cities have displaced the starry sky; In the meantime, one-third of the world’s population has lost sight of the Milky Way, of shooting stars and luminous comets.

The diverse and cross-media exhibition gives an insight into the relation of man to the starry sky, which is the subject of research, of romanticism, of destiny, but also of threat scenarios. Dreaming, humorous, poetic, but also ironic, the artists of the 20th and 21st century are exploring the relationship of man to the infinity of the starry sky and are exploring the sparkle of the stars and their present loss.

For those interested in visiting the exhibit, Cohen’s work is joined by several talented artist, including Max Ernst, Philippe Gerlach, Meret Oppenheim, Iv Toshain, Roman Scheidl, and many many more. There’s plenty of time to plan your trip, as the exhibit won’t conclude until January 14th, 2018.
