In collaboration with the Elmhurst Art Museum, the artist duo Luftwerk is presenting the spectacular exhibition 'Parallel Perspectives'. This takes place in the McCormick House (Illinois, United States) designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe in 1952.
"The works are inspired by the conceptual framework of Mies van der Rohe."
To activate and interpret the McCormick House, the 'Parallel Perspectives' exhibition uses colour and light interventions. With this installation, Luftwerk wants to enhance the senses of visitors and change perception while celebrating the prefab protoype. The title of the exhibition refers to the prefab parts of the McCormick House; the works are inspired by the conceptual framework of Ludwig Mies van der Rohe.
The installation consists of several works with static and dynamic colour ratios including a light piece that immerses the bedroom in light and transforms it completely, neon lights with reflective effects, pulsing light boxes and a colourful glass cube. The viewer's experiences and spatial perceptions are influenced by the visual effects in the entire domestic environment.
The exhibition runs until 25 August.
