A major work exhibited by the Antonio Dalle Nogare Foundation is the American artist, James Turrell’s “Jadito White” (1967). This installation consists of a single xenon projector that projects a rectangle of light onto the opposite wall of a room specifically built to the artist’s specifications. The projected geometrical shape creates the illusion of being a solid volume and the power of the artist’s work depends on the simplicity of its geometry and the visitor’s interaction with it.

 

“Jadito White” is part of Turrell’s “Single Wall Projections” cycle, a series of light projection that date back to 1966-1967 and were some of the first light projection installations created by the artist at the Mendota Hotel in Ocean Park, California. James Turrell is considered to be one of the leading exponents of the “Light and Space” conceptual art movement. Today he focuses mainly on installations that combine aspects of Land Art, like his visionary Roden Crater project – a series of structures built inside the cone of an extinct volcano in Arizona for experiencing the light of the sun, moon, stars and planets.
