The Fabrique des Lumières is a new electronic art centre in Amsterdam. Made by the superb Culturespaces workforce in the Westergasfabriek, an aged gasoline plant in Amsterdam West (map), the Fabrique des Lumières features readers a magical, immersive art working experience.
My to start with practical experience with the operate of Culturespaces was significantly less than a yr in the past. Throughout my Rhône River cruise in southern France, I frequented the Carrières de Lumières in an aged stone quarry in the Provence. I was certainly amazed with the impressive placing, the beautiful illustrations or photos and tunes choices. So, when I observed out that the identical group was opening a new sister area in Amsterdam in April 2022, I understood I had to see it!
The Westergasfabriek, with its 17-meter-significant partitions and large open up room, is the great area for this immersive exhibition. The corridor was presently in use for cultural exhibitions but this will now be the everlasting residence of the Fabrique des Lumières.
The 1st Fabrique des Lumières exhibition options the lively and colourful is effective of Gustav Klimt and Friedensreich Hundertwasser, two of Austria’s most well-known artists. The 45-minute display quickly commenced with uplifting audio and transferring pictures. The popular operates of Gustav Klimt filled the partitions and floor, a vivid burst of colour that was merely enthralling.
The most popular operates of Gustav Klimt were being from his ‘Golden Phase’. Inspired by the wealthy, golden mosaics in Ravenna, he made use of gold leaf to make his intricate, mosaic-like styles.
The Gustav Klimt clearly show lasted about 30 minutes, and was adopted by a shorter clearly show that includes the brightly colored functions of Hundertwasser. The Culturespaces workforce have done an superb occupation to showcase the performs of these artists, and pairing the consistently evolving photos with audio. The audiovisual effect is absolutely mesmerising!
There is so significantly to see that it is challenging to know in which to seem. My suggestion is to pick a few spots all through the exhibition and continue to be put for a even though in each spot. In the back again of the corridor is a balcony which delivers a panoramic view of the hall but I recommend shelling out most of your time on the ground floor for a total immersive expertise.
Individually, I’m thrilled that Culturespaces selected Amsterdam to open a new centre exterior France! It really is a amazing addition to the assorted artwork scene in Amsterdam! Take a look at the Fabrique des Lumières web-site for more details. Go through a lot more about items to do in Amsterdam.
