glow in the dark

Object: Installation / Dimensions: 190x340 cm / Year: 2010

Project in a former newspaper kiosque situated in the heart of the city of Luxembourg. Various materials such as mirror-coated reynobond and fluorescent laminated vinyl foil are assembled in this installation to focus the daylight and reflect passing vehicles and pedestrians. During the night, special phosphorescent-treated surfaces emit a glow charged up by exposure to neon light. This project was curated by Aica / Association internationale des critiques d’art. In 2019 the CNA, Centre national de l'audiovisuel acquired the artwork to install it permanently at their headquarter in Dudelange.
