Laser lights moved by the wind scan a reed bed. 


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
Park Frankendael
8 – 11 Jan from 17.00 – 22.00, free entrance

The exhibition´s main theme is the tension between culture and nature. Warm up and enjoy a drink or a bite to eat at 
Restaurant Merkelbach or the clubhouse of Scouting Frankendael. Maps are available for free at the starting point of the route near the main entrance of the park, next to Huize Frankendael on the Middenweg. Tram 9 stops nearby.
