Light guards provide light and warmth by Manfred Kielnhofer

Fiat Lux “Let there be light”
Light guards provide light and warmth.


Manfred Kielnhofer’s ghostly “Time Guardians” seem to have abandoned themselves to infinite sadness. What do the life-sized polyester figures represent? Are they supposed to inspire awe, compassion or fear? The artist refuses to tell us why he created them and if we dare to peer inside their cloaks we discover only black emptiness.

With his “Light Guards” Kielnhofer has created some slightly different Christmas lights. His light sculptures are reminiscent of monks, nuns and/or the Virgin Mary. The life-sized sculptures are equipped with energy saving lamps 32W.
