Lightways – A lightbeam installation for Refshaleøen
Opening 13.11.2015 5-8 p.m., Aperitif 6.30 p.m.
The Aperitif will be served in the Transformator Station of the former shipyard of Refshaleøen, Refshalevej 167, 1432 Copenhagen, Denmark.
Light attracts, deflects and guides the perception. Our gaze and our footsteps are led by light. In the installation at Refshaleøen, in an alternative path of light, the unexpected is lit up. The light path is meant to call into question the usual way in which light acts as an automatic “guide” for us through the city.
Some elements of the former shipyard of Refshaleøen will be illuminated, and thus lifted out of darkness by the light for a few moments. The installation’s various points of light illuminate objects from the past that still exist on the island, yet in some cases no longer have a function.
ewo presents in Copenhagen the new ewoLAB project „Lightways“. ewoLAB initiates projects with artists, designers and architects and in doing so deals with the subject of light on various levels. Young South Tyrolean artist Linda Jasmin Mayer, who currently lives in Copenhagen, is addressing the topic of light control for ewoLAB
