Spectacular ‘Night Exposition’ revealed in the Rijksmuseum.
In this video light artist Eelco van den Berg can be seen ‘painting’ with light.
As of yesterday, the largest portraits of the Rijksmuseum, painted in light, are on display each evening in the Atrium of the museum for a period of two weeks. The ‘Night Exposition’ is organized by Philips, founder of the Rijksmuseum, as a tribute to the unequalled master of light, Rembrandt – who is now on display in the Philips wing of the museum in the Late Rembrandt exhibition.
The exposition features the 17 winners of Philips’ Dutch Masters of Light campaign. From 11 March people could upload their portraits in order to end up on one of the walls of the Rijksmuseum. The life-size light art portraits were ‘painted’ by light artist Eelco van den Berg and clearly show the modern possibilities of LED. The largest portrait is twelve square metres.
Each evening until April 8th, the exposition will create a spectacular lightshow, visible from the passage under the museum.
