RENS VELTMAN: LYRICAL LIGHTS
In his installation “Lyrical Lights”, a couple strolls through the room and, despite the fact that these two figures named Irving and Violet only consist of a few points of light, they are nevertheless perceived in their movement by observers as three-dimensional images. During their walk, Irving and Violet philosophise on perception, emotions and human existence. Topics also touched on such as light, electricity or magnetism and reflections on space and time, transience and recollection animate visitors to think about phenomena which determine our existence but remain undiscussed in everyday life.
