For Kunsthal Light #15, the raw spatial work of the Rotterdam artist Pim Palsgraaf (1979) takes over the building like a parasite. Slowly but surely, with the passage of time his constructions intervene in the concrete, iron and glass of Koolhaas’ architecture.

Palsgraaf draws his inspiration from the city’s zones of friction and ragged outskirts – the forgotten places where no one comes, sometimes hidden from view as they await a new function. His dark buildings grow to form an abandoned city that floats above the heads of the visitors who walk through it. A sense of uneasiness seizes anyone who realises what is going on above them.

Pim Palsgraaf graduated cum laude in Fine Art from the Willem de Kooning Academy in Rotterdam in 2003. He has exhibited in many venues in the Netherlands and abroad, including New York, Moscow and Leipzig.
