Untitled 2
Aura Rendón Benger (1989) graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague in 2014, her graduation project consisting of large, air-filled objects made from kite fabric. These cumbersome yet light objects were placed, squeezed and hung in the space they occupied completely.

The long, narrow Kunsthal display window is the perfect location for the recurrent themes in Rendón Benger's work, such as distance, proximity and the role of the general public. 

Kunsthal Light #12

In her interactive installation, she plays with the visitors' child-like joy and sensual experience of nudging and bumping their way through the exhibition space. The interaction with the architecture of the Kunsthal provides an extra dimension for the public, who, from outside, watch a performance given by the visitors.

Kunsthal Light

Kunsthal Light creates opportunities for talented artists, putting the spotlight on modern muralists, urban and comic artists, conceptual art and installations. The artists are given the freedom to create a site-specific work in the display window along the building's front slope.
