Short version press release:

The title of this exhibition, DARK AGES 2020, refers to a looming, near future; one already discernible. Alona Rodeh (b.1979), an Israeli born Berlin based artist, marks her first institutional show in Austria with a challenging new step in her investigation of light as a cultural and physical entity. Her work for the Salzburger Kunstverein draws upon research on cultural uses of light and darkness as well as current technologies of illumination produced for road works, emergency services, airport runways and more.
