VAN GOGH, STARRY NIGHT

Atelier des Lumières - PARIS

 

PRODUCED BY CULTURESPACES
CREATED BY GIANFRANCO IANNUZZI, RENATO GATTO AND MASSIMILIANO SICCARDI – WITH THE MUSICAL COLLABORATION OF LUCA LONGOBARDI 

 

The new digital exhibition in the Atelier des Lumières immerses visitors in the paintings of Vincent van Gogh (1853–1890), a genius who was not recognised during his lifetime and who transformed painting. Projected on all the surface of the Atelier, this new visual and musical production retraces the intense life of the artist, who, during the last ten years of his life, painted more than 2,000 pictures, which are now in collections around the world.

 

The exhibition explores van Gogh’s numerous works, which radically evolved over the years, from The Potato Eaters (1885), Sun owers (1888) and Starry Night (1889) to Bedroom at Arles (1889). The Atelier des Lumières highlights the Dutch painter’s expressive and powerful brushstrokes and is illuminated by the bold colours of his unique paintings. Warm hues give way to sombre colours. The immersive exhibition evokes van Gogh’s highly emotional, chaotic, and poetic inner world and highlights the constant interplay of light and shade.

 

The thematic itinerary retraces stages of the artist’s life, and his sojourns in Neunen, Arles, Paris, Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, and Auvers-sur-Oise. Visitors are transported into the heart of his works, from his early to mature years, and from his sunny landscapes and nightscapes to his portraits and still lives.

 

This is complemented by a new educational device inside the tank located in the centre of the Atelier: a selection of van Gogh’s famous paintings are represented in their entirety and accompanied by commentaries about his oeuvre and the museum in which it is exhibited.

 

The visual and musical work produced by Culturespaces and directed by Gianfranco Iannuzzi, Renato Gatto, and Massimiliano Siccardi, highlights the chromatic richness of his palette, as well as the potency of his drawings and his use of impasto.
This journey into van Gogh’s greatest masterpieces, which are turned into moving images via the AMIEX® (Art & Music Immersive Experience) system, gives the colours a renewed impact. 

 

The Danny Rose Studio will be presenting an ongoing immersive exhibition about the imaginary Japanese works and scenes that held such fascination for van Gogh. From the iconic Great Wave by Hokusai to the ephemeral beauty of cherry blossoms, visitors are invited to have a contemplative experience in van Gogh’s imaginary Japan. 

 

IN LE STUDIO:

Exclusively created for the Atelier des Lumières, "Verse" transports visitors into the centre of the universe. Representing the in nitely large, spectacular images evoke the poetic and visual power of the cosmos and the stars. The result is a hypnotic and metaphysical stellar journey.
