Nicky Assman, Radiant

exhibition: 15 / 10 / 2015 - 31 / 01 / 2016
Location: TENT

TENT presents the solo exhibition of Nicky Assmann (1980, lives and works in Rotterdam). The focus is on a majestic moving light installation that occupies the entire front room. Assmann combines knowledge from science, technology and art in spatial installations in which the sensory experience is central. She uses light, mechanics and abstract geometry to create optical phenomena with which she investigates the mental and physical perception process. Against the background of our visual culture in which the experience of reality takes place more and more in the virtual domain, it returns to the physical foundations of seeing. In her artistic research she connects current technological developments with elementary physical processes.

The exhibition and works are made possible in part by the Mondriaan Fund, Fonds 21, Stimuleringsfonds and Stichting Stokroos.
