A key work on display is In die sterre geskryf (“Written in the stars”) by Berco Wilsenach, produced in 2009 as part of a body of work called Project for the Blind Astronomer – an artistic investigation into different decoding systems with which our visible night sky can be mapped and explained to a visually impaired audience. The panels are lit from within, creating an effect of thousands of dots floating in midair. This creates an experience of endless space and an infinitive number of dots reflecting within each of the panels. This is the first time In die sterre geskryf will be exhibited outside, drawing upon the real stars above for an even more immersive artistic experience.
Entrance to the Light Art Exhibition is free, and works are on show until 31 January. Some works will be visible at dusk, whilst others switch on at 20:30.
