Nirvana, a new Filux Lab exhibition, includes nine art installations that demonstrate different perspectives on the power of pure light. 

Julio Bekhor’s neon-and-vinyl light wheel welcomes visitors. The next two rooms contain immersive experiences: a long, colorful “worm” created by Mexico City artists Rodrigo Olvera and Daikoku Reyes followed by Orfeo Quaglata’s three glass sculptures that create kaleidoscopical effects.

The walk through Nirvana continues with a photo installation of a firefly sanctuary shot by Gabriel Berber, and an immersive and interactive installation that senses the visitor´s movement through the gallery space, created by Omar Gómez González and Luis Enrique González Figueroa.     

The exhibition also has an outdoor zone with visual projections: one, created by Valentina Herrera, is about the infinite patterns created by a green laser light reflected on water. And artist Josue Abraham presents a 3D conceptual and hypnotic animation.

At the far end of the backyard, there is a video projection of a mandala from Rimiyoho, a project by Mexico City visual artist Fernando Sica.

Nirvana’s sound design was composed by Yucatecan artist Diego Cano.
