The Incandescents is a major new body of work by Lisa Crowley with contributions from Jan Bryant, Gwyn Porter, Ngahuia Harrison and Evangeline Riddiford Graham.

The exhibition consists of a video work interspersed with excerpts from Christiaan Huygens’ 1690 text Treatise on Light and a publication, featuring writing by a selection of artists and writers about their life and work, inspired by Virginia Woolf's concept of the incandescent mind.

Through these two components, Crowley brings the natural phenomenon of light and the creative metaphor of illumination into conversation to explore how subjective and objective thinking are not separate but interconnected in complex ways that resonate with possibility.
