Film "All is Light"

A view on the work of Jan Henderikse by Sherman De Jesus

This film of Sherman De Jesus was made in 2001 by the producer Memphis Film & Television. In 2004, it was selected as "Best International Documentary" by the New York International Independent Film & Video Festival, USA.

All Is Light starts when Jan Henderikse is preparing for a major work with almost 2,000 nightlights (illuminated plastic statuettes) in the form of Jesus Christ in the partly destroyed St. Georgen Kirche in the German Hanseatic city of Wismar. He leaves for Berlin. He is penniless and thinking about the money he doesn’t have. In his studio in Berlin, he is going to prepare new work and he visits galleries begging for a show. All is Light shows where Jan Henderikse gets his inspiration. Like many contemporary artists he poses the question of whether it is art or deceit. Like a real entertainer, Jan Henderikse is openly willing to show us.

The movie starts at 3pm in the room next to the exhibition.
