Last week, the Ruth Benzacar gallery presented “The eternity of the night”, a new exhibition by Miguel Rothschild (1963). Living in Berlin for more than 30 years, the artist returns to religion, a subject that he has been working with more or less intensity for decades. In the current exhibition he presents the beautiful architecture of the Gothic domes made of glass and with unusual procedures. The transparency of the material makes it possible to see a starry sky through all the domes. In a spire of a Gothic cathedral, perhaps the most striking and crystalline work, the design of the stars stands out in the small bursts of glass damaged by hammer blows. In the darkness of “the night” mentioned in the title, the beams of light cut the shadow and generate reflections and glare that accentuate the brilliance of the stars and that are repeated in another rounded dome, but also faceted and radiant.
