Beacon (2021) is a new large-scale sculptural installation by Karolina Halatek that invites viewers to be immersed in a dazzling white light in the form of a pillar which points towards the sky to evoke the sublime matters between heaven and earth. On one hand, the light pillar is used as a sign of guidance and protection; on the other, its white light includes all colors of the spectrum and refers to the concepts of completeness, of fullness. 

The piece has a monumental quality that acts as a beacon, yet also offers a small, intimate space that viewers can enter, experiencing the work from the inside, shifting their perception and being embraced by an unexpected, extraordinary brightness. Its formal simplicity and the purity of its white light generate a mysterious yet calming effect on those who approach it.
