For their exhibition at KW|AG Ngui and Wojtyra have created Let’s Glow, a new installation which is anchored by an imaginary group of self-generated beings. Aptly named the Crystal Kings (Luciferous Radii), these beings seem to resemble a hybrid of biological forms and crystalline rock structures. The nature of their scientific name, and the fact that they have one at all, is a nod to the artists’ interest in biochemistry and other branches of scientific inquiry. The origin story of the Crystal Kings is open ended, evolving as the artists continue to work through its chapters in various visual manifestations. Ngui and Wojtyra propose that these beings are a species which grow themselves into existence, aided only by a desire to be. – Let’s Glow curator Crystal Mowry (read more)
