Festival of Lights Berlin 2014 – Guardians of Time by Manfred Kielnhofer

The “Guardians of Time” tour through worldwide museums and exhibitions for many years.

Guardians of TimeSince the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS 2011, they visit the German capital on a regular basis. The time traveler of the FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS always seem mystical to their viewers. They walk like monks through the world. No one knows exactly where they will appear next. But one thing is certain: The “Time Guardians” are also traveling at the tenth FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS in Berlin on all days of the festival at many different places. New this year are the nearly three-meter tall white guards who are stanting at the Festival Centre Potsdamer Platz and who are both observer and guardian of time and space. A great photo opportunity are the red and white glowing figures anyway.

The Austrian artist Manfred Kielnhofer has created the mystical figures. He has been a freelance artist and worked as a painter, sculptor and photographer for many years.
