Light advice Harry Cole

Light installation as part of the third edition from Into the Light international exhibition by Error One, ( with video and light installations on public display in Antwerp South in collaboration with the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp, Middelheimmuseum, M hka, Cinema Zuid, Air and several galleries.


For Into the Light Monique Thomaes made a light installation at the loggia high on the façade of the stately Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp.

The choice of this location arises out of her interest in space, light and architecture. During the course of the project, the eleven artists’ busts are brought increasdingly into the spotlight: one by one, or in group, a powerful spotlight draws these inconspicuous images out of their niche in a theatrical and poetic way.

The architecture remains unchanged: what is already there only receives an additional accent. Passers-by are invited to look at the building in a new way.
