For the "Gazing into Sphere" installation, the South Korean artist Kimsooja used a reflective intermediate level that further intensified the complex spatial impression.
Parscan spotlights with a puristic design and warm white light colour were installed in the corners of the "Escher Gallery" and illuminate the ceiling underside of the former silo.
Dimmable ERCO Parscan spotlights were used in all gallery rooms. Axel Vervoordt Gallery exhibitions change four times a year. The Spherolit lenses of the spotlights can be exchanged without tools to optimally modify the light distribution to the respective exhibits. Parscan is also ideal for ceiling channels: if the luminaires are integrated as here for example into an existing steel beam, they are largely concealed from the observer's field of vision and place the focus on the illuminated works of art.
The figure of a meditating Buddhist 'Lohan' priest made of varnished wood in the so-called Black Box is effectively illuminated by a Parscan spotlight. A rotary control on the luminaire allows the spotlight with 15W installed load to also be dimmed for the very soft lighting effect. Another Parscan spotlight accentuates the exterior wall of the Black Box.
Almost black walls in some rooms create a contemplative atmosphere that supports a more intense observation of the art. Just a few spotlights are sufficient to precisely illuminate the displayed works of art from east and west. The Japanese Zen painting (left) from the 16th century, for example, is highlighted with just a single Parscan spotlight with an installed load of 12W and oval flood distribution; the spherical bronze 'Natura' sculpture by Lucio Fontana is illuminated with one Parscan spotlight with narrow spot distribution, and the other paintings with flood or wide flood distribution.
The Patio Gallery is a white exhibition space which receives northern light via saw-tooth roofs and thus offers the ideal backdrop for the presentation of paintings (shown: Raimund Girke "The Dominance of Light").
White Parscan spotlights complement the daylight.
The Terrace Gallery with grey walls and floor as well as a dark wooden ceiling provides a neutral, reduced backdrop for the temporary exhibitions of the Axel Vervoordt Gallery (shown: exhibition view of Chung Chang-Sup).
With nine possible light distributions, ERCO Parscan is the perfect lighting tool for accentuating works of art in different formats against this neutral background; the luminaire itself recedes completely into the background. The works of art seem to radiate from within and the grey wall takes on the appearance of a passe-partout.
The Terrace Gallery with grey walls and floor as well as a dark wooden ceiling provides a reduced backdrop for the temporary exhibitions of the Axel Vervoordt Gallery (shown: painting by Saburo Murakami). Crisp illumination with Parscan spotlights with spot, flood and oval flood light distribution, as well as compact Pollux spotlights, brings the presented works of art into focus against this neutral background.
