To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Kunsthal 44Møen will put together a special constellation of stars under the lyric name “Møenlight Sonata”, alluding to Beethoven’s 14th sonata for piano, which he also referred to “quasi una fantasia”. The show will present a cross-section of the Kunsthal’s program so far, as well as newly commissioned works by artists from Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Great Britain and Turkey that are still new to the island. What connects the works of these individual artists is the specific use of light, as subject and material. Light (or the absence of it) is not only one of the oldest topics in art history, but also a special condition on Møn – during the day, but also at night.The 10 year anniversary of Kunsthal 44Møen is conceived to be a summer festival, an invitation to all groups of local residents and visiting guests to celebrate the sky over Møn.
