Brandenburger Tor mit Lichtgraffiti (Quelle: Said Okins)

Der Kalligrafie-Künstler Said Dokins zeichnet seine Kunst nicht nur mit Farbe, in der Zusammenarbeit mit dem Fotografen Leonardo Luna greift er auch zu Leuchtmitteln und kreiert damit Schriften und Bilder, die erst durch eine Langzeitaufnahme zum Vorschein kommen.

Hier eine Auswahl seiner Werke:

‘Inscripción y Borradura’ (‘Inscription and Erasure’), @saidokins & @leodluna. Heliographies of Memory series, 2017. Heerlen, Netherlands. @schunck_glaspaleis | MusicSchool | #Pancratiuskerk _________________________________ Owing to @heerlenmurals invitation, we worked during a week on the production of a new series that will be presented next year, as a big format photograph situated in the center of the city, along with a large-scale mural, following with the tradition Heerlen is well-known for: mural intervention. One of the things that stand out in Heerlen is the palimpsest that at first sight is possible to observe in its architecture: a city with traces of the Roman occupation and Medieval remnants, in contrast to Modernist and Avant-Garde architecture, all along in the same place. In the city center, we can find the most emblematic building in Heerlen, the Glaspaleis, built in 1935 by Fritz Peutz, a jewel of Netherlands modernism. A few steps away, there it is the Pancatiuskerk, a Romanic style church, erected between 10th and 12th centuries. Next to it, we look at the Music School a part of Glass Palace, constructed in 2003 by Jo Coenen, Wiel Arets Architects, an icon of contemporary architecture. __________________________________ …every erased trace, in consciousness, can leave a trace of its erasure whose symptom (individual, or social, historical, political and so on) will always be capable of ensuring its return.

Capitalism as a religion, 2016. Light Calligraphy. Bordeaux France @saidokins & @leodluna presenting 'Heliographies of Memory' light calligraphy project on #OSTRALE Biennale of Contemporary Art, the third largest contemporary art exhibition in Germany, which in it's Eleventh Edition proposes the idea of re_form as guiding theme to address a diversity of socially relevant issues. 'Heliographies of Memory is a long-term project that explores diverse social and historical relations that define specific places and, at the same time, resignify the sites within contemporary imaginaries, such as displaced memories encrypted in the flow and transit, a Non-place. Heliographies of Memory consist in a series of photographs that capture the calligraphic gesture, the very moment where the action of inscription is taking place. But this is not usual calligraphy writing. The texts are written with light, so the words disappear as soon as they were suggested by the moves of the calligrapher, invisible to the simple eye, they just can be captured by a process of long-exposure photography, that reveal what happened, even though no one could see it. Through these ephemeral interventions with light calligraphy, we capture the invisible, acting on air, using as locations iconic places: historic sites, public plazas, monuments, bulwarks, abandoned places become re-signification spaces. Thanks Ingo Bonikowski and Evelyna Schubert for all support and to @culturamx for mobility found. #biennale #art #contemporaryart #lightcalligraphy #lightart #lightpainting #performanceart #ostrale #ostrale2017 #ostralebiennaleo17

Heliographies of the memory / barred monuments. @saidokins & @leodluna in @museelouvre place. Departing from my interest on the idea of writing as an act, graffiti as a trace, with the understanding of experience itself as a creation of sense in the action moment, I started to wonder how to register that experience, that ephemeral act of graffiti and I found a solution in long exposure photography as a form to register light that can help us to capture that moment. I have worked with animation and now, with my friend, the photographer Leo Luna, we're working on a project we call Heliographies of Memory, seeking to define what is for me the pure act of graffiti, and, at the same time, exploring new ways of space appropriation. We capture the invisible, acting on air, using as locations iconic places: historic sites, public plazas, monuments, bulwarks, become re signification spaces. Through light calligraphy, I have accomplished to separate symbolically graffiti from the wall and suspend it on the space. #calligraphy #lightCalligraphy #calligraphymasters
