This edition of Glow Eindhoven highlights Vincent Van Gogh.
Two large-scale light projects inspired by the artist can be seen on the Glow route. The projects were realised with the very latest technology.
In ‘Light Study’, the Hungarian artist Lászó Szolt Bordos makes the light in Van Gogh’s painting of ‘The Potato Eaters’ move. In the ‘Pleasant Places’ project, Italian artist Quayola makes Van Gogh’s brush strokes literally come to life, in a natural setting, on a giant screen.
Light artists are being inspired by Van Gogh not only in Eindhoven, but in the whole region. Artist Noralie invited children to make a graphic piece on the façade of the Van Gogh Museum, Vincentre, in Nuenen. She recorded the process and it will be projected on to the museum during Glow, resulting in an enchanting piece of light art.
This year sees the commemoration of the 125th anniversary of Van Gogh’s death. An international programme is taking place, with the theme: 125 years of inspiration.
