The Fabrique des Lumières is a brand new digital artwork centre in Amsterdam. Created by the improbable Culturespaces crew within the Westergasfabriek, an previous gasoline plant in Amsterdam West (map), the Fabrique des Lumières gives guests a magical, immersive artwork expertise.
My first expertise with the work of Culturespaces was lower than a 12 months in the past. Throughout my Rhône River cruise in southern France, I visited the Carrières de Lumières in an previous stone quarry within the Provence. I used to be actually impressed with the spectacular setting, the beautiful photos and music selections. So, after I came upon that the identical crew was opening a brand new sister location in Amsterdam in April 2022, I knew I needed to see it!
The Westergasfabriek, with its 17-meter-high partitions and huge open area, is the right location for this immersive exhibition. The corridor was already in use for cultural exhibitions however this may now be the everlasting residence of the Fabrique des Lumières.
The primary Fabrique des Lumières exhibition options the colourful and vibrant works of Gustav Klimt and Friedensreich Hundertwasser, two of Austria’s most well-known artists. The 45-minute present quickly began with uplifting music and shifting photos. The well-known works of Gustav Klimt stuffed the partitions and ground, a vivid burst of color that was merely enthralling.
Probably the most well-known works of Gustav Klimt have been from his ‘Golden Section’. Impressed by the wealthy, golden mosaics in Ravenna, he used gold leaf to create his intricate, mosaic-like patterns.
The Gustav Klimt present lasted about half-hour, and was adopted by a shorter present that includes the brightly colored works of Hundertwasser. The Culturespaces crew have executed an impressive job to showcase the works of those artists, and pairing the always evolving photos with music. The audiovisual impact is totally mesmerising!
There’s a lot to see that it’s arduous to know the place to look. My suggestion is to select just a few spots all through the exhibition and keep put for some time in every spot. Behind the corridor is a balcony which gives a panoramic view of the corridor however I like to recommend spending most of your time on the bottom ground for a full immersive expertise.
Personally, I’m thrilled that Culturespaces selected Amsterdam to open a brand new centre outdoors France! It actually is a improbable addition to the varied artwork scene in Amsterdam! Go to the Fabrique des Lumières website for more information. Learn extra about things to do in Amsterdam.
