BERLIN.- What is light? What is time and space? What is light in sculpture? And what is the significance of light as a medium of art? All these and other questions arise at the current exhibition by the British artist Anthony McCall (born 1946) at the Berlin Museum of Contemporary Art. It is an impressive presentation that throws interesting light on our way of observing and perceiving the world around us. Anthony McCall’s light sculptures juggle with paradoxes, showing us something that is simultaneously both real and unreal, that contains nothing of substance and is pure light. Though the works are intangible, we want to touch or grasp them. But there is nothing to hold onto, nothing to touch or to feel.
