Her most recent artwork is titled ‘Halo’ (2019), and was created as part of an artist residency in Chengdu, China. The illuminated ring encircles the viewer in a glowing white light, and upon immersion, the viewer becomes a fundamental part of the art piece. “The essence of the work comes from the imaginary super-natural sensation of clarity, light, and extended space,” Halatek tells IGNANT. “While interacting with the work, one has the possibility to discover a new dimension of their own presence in a contemplative, pure and abstract environment”. An older project of Halatek’s echoes this same sentiment: ‘Terminal’ (2016) was a tubular light installation erected in the Gerlingen Town Hall Square in the south of Germany. The artwork was inspired by people’s near-death experiences, its title refers to the definition of the word terminal; whereby a person has a condition predicted to result in death. Both works are “all about the human and the inner light that everyone has the potential to discover,” she concludes.
