TIWA Gallery is proud to present a collection of oil lamps by prolific lighting designer Lindsey Adelman. A departure from her usual large-scale studio creations, Adelman’s oil lamps are personal and quieter; a whispered interaction rather than a loud proclamation. 

Returning to the basics of her philosophical interest in light, Adelman’s oil lamps aim to induce a collective ritual experience that toys with perceptions of time and space, drawing inspiration from ancient spiritual rituals. The collection of thirty-two oil lamps—some hanging, and others sitting on surfaces—will illuminate a path through a space framed by hand-stitched hanging panels by Nigerian-American textile artist Sarah Nsikak.
