Luca Curci – Please tell me about your art/the artwork shown during our festival.     Helmut Eding – I present light art in form of balls of different sizes. The light balls are illuminated from the inside. The motives are from pop art to organic motifs.

L.C. – We were attracted by your last artistic production, have the artworks presented been created for Border festival or as a part of pre-existent works?
H.E. – No, they haven`t been produced for the festival fragmented identities , the artworks were pre-existent.

L.C. – When did you start practicing art and why?
H.E. – I am doing the light arts for 4 years, but actually I am a painter for more than 30 years, with paintings on canvas with all kind of motifs and sizes. For me, art is essential and a complementation of the human existence, it is a tool of communication and making inspiration visible.

L.C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?
H.E. – In my work I transform my confrontation with nature and landscape with surrealism. My inspiration comes from the attempt to look behind the wall of reality.

L.C. – What’s the art tip you usually receive? Do visitors’ suggestions enrich yourself and your art?
H.E. – No, I produce pictures through my own inspiration and ideas. So far I didn´t not get my inspiration from visitors.

 L.C. – What art themes do you pursue? What are your preferred subjects if any?            H.E. – I don´t have preferred subjects. I like surrealism, I am flexible. My ideas depends on emotions, questions and thoughts, which I try to transform in light and colors or my canvas paintings.

L.C. – What do you think about It’s LIQUID Platform? Do you think It’s LIQUID Group can represent an opportunity for artists?
H.E. – Actually yes, but unfortunately I didn’t have the possibility to have an exchange with other artists and curators. I was disappointed after visiting the exhibition, only few guests were there. Maybe it needs to be promoted.
