Norway’s projectiondesign has announced that it is the official technology partner for the upcoming Noches Electricas or ‘Electric Nights’ exhibit. The new exhibit launched on Friday, 18 March 2011 at LABoral Centre of Art and Industrial Creation in Gijón, Spain and will continue until 12 September 2011.
Electric Nights is an exhibition conceived by the Musée National d’Art Moderne, Centre Georges Pompidou and produced in conjunction with LABoral.
“The projectors faithfully reproduce artistic works and video content on to screens of various sizes and formats,” said Lucía García, general coordinator from LABoral. “These screens hang at varying heights in the exhibit space and even above the audience so that they are looking at the sky. The art will be presented in an open plan exhibition space, conceived as a kind of contemplative walk, in which the various works operate on the principle of fireworks, alternating projection canvases.”
“This is exactly the type of creative installation that projectiondesign likes to support with the provision of our flagship F32 projectors to form a critical part of the actual exhibition,” said Thierry Ollivier, regional manager, France, Russia, CIS and CEE at projectiondesign (pictured). “The projectors are well known for their image accuracy, reliability and colour fidelity. Like fireworks, the films and artwork being shown using our technology is also a showcase of projection of light and moving images in the dark.”
Through a selection of works from the Centre George Pompidou and other French collections, Electric Nights takes its name from Les nuits électriques, a short film directed by Ukrainian avant-garde film maker, Eugene Deslaw in 1928, in which he focused on city lights at night-time, sequencing street lamps, neon signs and shop windows of Paris, Berlin and Prague, almost as if it were a fireworks show.
