For four winter nights, an exhibition of 16 light installations and sculptures will take place in Park Frankendael, located in the east of Amsterdam. The artworks are dispersed over the park grounds; walk from one artwork to the next in this historical park that includes a monumental country house, a baroque garden and a real folly. The artworks are made in a variety of styles; most of them are based on old school techniques like neon, tube lighting, overhead and slide projections, and the good ol’ light bulb.
This is a project by Stichting Polderlicht
8 – 11 Jan from 17.00 – 22.00, free entrance
