The Art of Illumination

Blacks Club - 67 Dean St, Soho, London W1D 4QH

With the celebrated Danish installation artist Tine Bech

from 6.30pm on Tue 23 Oct 2018

Modern technology has greatly expanded the possibilities for contemporary artists, and in particular their ability to work with light. Tine Bech, the celebrated international artist, will talk about talk about some of the major art installations she has delivered in the public realm, and in particular about the art of illumination, using temporary installation lighting to create important and dramatic contemporary artworks. In its explorations of technology and of modernity these works very much reflect the dynamic cross-arts approach being championed by the Rimbaud and Verlaine Foundation, and the curiosity and open-mindedness of the poets Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine, who did so much to explore and celebrate modernity in their own age of globalisation. Illuminations is also, of course, the title of one of Rimbaud’s most important prose poem sequences.

Tine Bech is a multi-disciplinary contemporary artist who creates interactive art where participation, curiosity, and communications are essential facets of the experience. Born in Denmark, she now lives and works in London where she creates innovative projects which excite and inspire people around the world. Specialising in the use of illumination she works with programmers, electronic engineers, fabricators, and architects to create works which put the human experience at the centre of our interactions with space, place and technology. Tine’s work has been exhibited in public spaces, galleries and at major festivals, transforming urban landmarks in cities around the world.
