ABOUT SkLAD 2021

Marking the 30 years of independence, the fourth edition of Skopje Light Art District will commence on the 8th of September. For four days until the 11th of the September the audience will be able to enjoy the 15 locations where numerus artworks and performances will splendour the city. Focusing creative energies to connect the history and marvels of the brutalist architecture of the Post Office building with the wonders of the Skopje City Park.

 

Reaching from history, deeply into nature, among trees, meadows and lakes. Skopje City Park is not just the green, tranquil oasis and invaluable lung of our hectic city, but a very unique place to enjoy, to take care of and to be proud of. Searching inspiration in its beauty and treasures Skopje Light Art District aims to highlight this exclusivity by creating an extraordinary experience where nature, technology, science and art meet. 

The focus and the main theme of this year’s festival is The Sun. It is the star at the center of our solar system. Apparently it is a giant hot ball of glowing gases heated to incandescence by nuclear fusion reactions in its core. With the heat of 15 million degrees Celsius, the Sun is radiating enormous amounts of energy, mainly as visible light and infrared radiation, to create and support life on Earth.

 

The connection and interactions between the Sun and Earth generates all life, weather, climate, drive the seasons, ocean currents, radiation belts and aurorae. Although there are billions of stars like the Sun scattered across the Milky Way galaxy, our Sun is very special to us. Therefore, since ancient times, the Sun retains many symbolic properties, symbolizing life, the supreme power, cosmic energy and the life force that enables all things to thrive and grow. The Sun is used as a symbol of power, energy, force, strength, birth and rebirth. It represents a hero, a great cosmic eye in the sky, knowledge, divinity, brightness or overall splendor… and so much more.

Skopje Light Art District 2021 will praise the Sun as a glorious source of endless inspiration.
