THE EVER CHANGING LIGHT

THE EVER CHANGING LIGHT

Media Performance for impressionist exhibition
Premiered in August 2020
Commissioned by Potsdam Museum

The Live-Performance for the exhibition “…The Ever Changing Light” expands the atmospheric space of the impressionistic work by the late painter Karl Hagemeister from Weimar into an immersive walkable installation.

Spread across a multitude of large canvases and surround sound the pieces are being analysed, remapped and dispersed into individual particles, further rearranged, layered and reassembled. The visitor is dragged into a sensual journey and an audiovisual experience of depth. In an unfolding of landscapes through light and shadow with brush strokes larger-than-life, the mood of the paintings is being captured into an original musical composition, fusing impressionistic grand piano and digital ambient sound art with the visual imagery into a poetic field. Excerpts from the Live-Performance were subsequently interwoven to form an art work running on its own accord, accessible to visitors of the parallel exhibition.
