Am I looking at a photographic print, or is this part of the building? The installations of Marleen Sleeuwits (1980) blur the dividing lines between fiction and reality. Aided by bright neon lights, foil, photographic prints, and mirrors, she plays with perspective, reflection, and scale in architectural spaces. Examples of this are windows that continue beyond the ceiling, or the repetition of architectural details. It is her intention to temporarily alienate the visitors from their sense of time and location. Sleeuwits will be transforming the display window along the ramp into a spatial optical illusion for Kunsthal Light #24. She is inspired by the Kunsthal architecture that in her view contains elements of beauty and disorientation.

KUNSTHAL LIGHT

‘Kunsthal Light’ is the Kunsthal’s talent development programme. Since 2011, this exhibition programme has been especially focusing on young artist who are capable of making 'a grand gesture' in an original and artistic way. Three times a year, the Kunsthal places HALL 6 (the over 25-meter-long display window along the ramp) at the disposal of an artist who is given free rein to make a site-specific work. In 2020, Kunsthal Light is also made possible by the Mondriaan Fund.
