          The Ukrainian Catholic Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception is known for their golden dome but has much more captured inside. From the Shroud of Turin to their religious mosaics, the beauty of the church is truly represented both inside and out. The Treasury of Faith Museum connected to the church preserves artifacts from catholic churches throughout the world.

              Click here (http://igg.me/at/glowfest/x/3417616) to contribute to the campaign. The GLOW festival is expensive. On the museum side, we have to pay for street permits, safety gear, and lots of staff time spent with artists and the fire department to make sure it all goes smoothly. On the artists' side, they have to produce jaw-dropping projects, pass safety checks, and be ready to share their work responsibly with huge crowds of people. We're asking you to help us by sponsoring an artist or two. Every dollar of this campaign will go directly to artists to support their participation. We'll pay for the unsexy stuff like permits and fences. You'll get all the glory. Our hope is to be able to pay each artist a $100 honorarium and cover their transportation and material costs. It's not much. If this campaign goes amazingly, we'll pay them more. And if it goes super-amazingly, we'll all blast off into the night on a glowing spaceship. Seriously.

                  Interview with Folkert de Jong about his installation "Actus Tragicus" 23/03/2013 - 08/09/2013 @ Mudam Luxembourg - Musée d'Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean At first glance, the three-dimensional pictures by the Dutch artist Folkert de Jong appear seductive and disturbing in equal measure. De Jong generally turns the exhibition space into a theatre stage, for which he designs sceneries made, with great virtuosity, from polyurethane foam, an unusual material in sculpture. Often inspired by historic facts, real persons or memorable episodes from art history, his works unfold in complex compositions that confront the viewer with extremely tangible directness. In response to an invitation from Mudam, de Jong presents Actus Tragicus, an ensemble of new works that he has created especially for the Grand Hall. For the artist, this central space in the museum possesses the intimidating dominance of a cathedral or mausoleum, while also being perfect for theatrical presentations, with a balcony to observe from a distance. Ten larger than life figures, whose physiognomies, like a déjà-vu experience, remind the viewer of something familiar, dangle from the heights of the glass dome like marionettes (or hanged people). De Jong's source of inspiration for this bizarre dance of the figures, between which viewers have to make their way as if they were part of the performance, is the painting The Fight Between Carnival and Lent by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, painted in 1559. A crude mixture of allegory and realism, this crowd scene in the typical Bruegel manner contrasts vice and excess with virtue and abstinence in innumerable individual scenes. The conflict between the extremes of human existence, between ascetic discipline and intemperate pleasure, which comprehends some of the existential questions of humankind that is torn between heaven and earth, is also the focus of de Jong's installation. From time immemorial, people have sought answers to questions regarding power and religion, eternity and finiteness, life and death. These questions are also evoked by Actus Tragicus, as in the early funeral cantata by Johann Sebastian Bach, also known under the title Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit (God’s time is the very best time), that gives the work its name. Brought into a contemporary form using modern means and materials, the round dance of the figures involves the viewers in a drama to which each contributes with his or her own role. In this way, de Jong creates a tableau vivant in which the grotesque and the macabre alternate with the light and the airy. Folkert de Jong was born in 1972 in Egmond aan Zee, Netherlands. He lives and works in Amsterdam.
