The Latvian artist Jelena Dalins has visited famous museums for years and has taken photographs of works of art which are kept behind glass by photoflashing them. The viewer immediately becomes conscious of the life of their own these pictures have, and wants to look “behind” the flash in order to discover the work of art that seems to be hidden behind it. “Lightning” reflects the obsolete role that is being ascribed to pictures as an effigy of meanings, in places of dense aesthetic meaning.
