Lighthouses have had a vital importance for Rogaland’s coastline in the previous two centuries. Through the use of LIGHT and SOUND signals, they have communicated to the world beyond the shoreline and the lighthouses themselves have functioned as small self-contained communities: in this way can we say that they have shaped and saved LIVES.
The exhibitions and events that comprise On The Edge 2012 investigate light, sound and live elements in varying combinations and contexts. Lighthouses stand physically at the intersection between land and sea, on the border of two extremes. The lighthouses have always been ahead of their time in technological innovation, in relation to communication through the use of sound and light.
The art programme for On the Edge 2012 take these three central elements as its starting point and presents a wide spectrum of high quality contemporary art by international artists that circle around these themes.
