Gabriël

DordtYart, Dordrecht 2014

In a former machine hall in Dordrecht the angel Gabriel appears through foils of transparent colour. Hanging suspended from the ceiling, thirty layers deep, the rectangular foils create a light and shadow effect which grants the image a sense of spatiality. The apparition plays with the incoming light, momentarily changing the hall into a sacral space.

Dim. 10 X 16 X 7 m
88 coloured foils, measuring 560 x 60 cm, 30 x 60 and 90 x 120 cm, 32 horizontal cables

Realised with the assistance of Janina Schipper and Santiago Fernandez de Mosteyrin
