The Fabrique des Lumières is a new electronic art centre in Amsterdam. Made by the wonderful Culturespaces team in the Westergasfabriek, an aged fuel plant in Amsterdam West (map), the Fabrique des Lumières gives people a magical, immersive art expertise.
My to start with expertise with the perform of Culturespaces was much less than a calendar year back. Through my Rhône River cruise in southern France, I frequented the Carrières de Lumières in an previous stone quarry in the Provence. I was genuinely impressed with the stunning placing, the gorgeous illustrations or photos and new music choices. So, when I discovered out that the identical staff was opening a new sister locale in Amsterdam in April 2022, I knew I experienced to see it!
The Westergasfabriek, with its 17-meter-superior partitions and significant open house, is the fantastic place for this immersive exhibition. The hall was already in use for cultural exhibitions but this will now be the lasting house of the Fabrique des Lumières.
The first Fabrique des Lumières exhibition options the vivid and vibrant functions of Gustav Klimt and Friedensreich Hundertwasser, two of Austria’s most popular artists. The 45-moment exhibit quickly started with uplifting songs and going images. The well-known functions of Gustav Klimt stuffed the walls and floor, a vivid burst of colour that was basically enthralling.
The most well known will work of Gustav Klimt were being from his ‘Golden Phase’. Influenced by the loaded, golden mosaics in Ravenna, he used gold leaf to generate his intricate, mosaic-like designs.
The Gustav Klimt display lasted about 30 minutes, and was adopted by a shorter clearly show featuring the brightly colored functions of Hundertwasser. The Culturespaces staff have finished an superb job to showcase the performs of these artists, and pairing the regularly evolving illustrations or photos with songs. The audiovisual impact is definitely mesmerising!
There is so a lot to see that it’s difficult to know exactly where to search. My suggestion is to decide on a handful of places all through the exhibition and remain set for a although in each location. In the back of the corridor is a balcony which provides a panoramic watch of the corridor but I recommend paying out most of your time on the floor floor for a total immersive experience.
Personally, I’m thrilled that Culturespaces selected Amsterdam to open up a new centre exterior France! It actually is a excellent addition to the varied art scene in Amsterdam!
