Open: Mon till Wed 12.00 - 18.00, Thu till Sun 14.00 - 22.00
To our eyes, darkness is the absence of light, and light appears as the origin of life. In the world premiere of the awe-inspiring installation Spiraling Into Infinity by Amsterdam based artist duo Children of the Light, light is staged as a fleeting yet tangible presence that is playfully roaming the nebulous exhibition space of MU. Shifting colour, speed and direction, the light evokes different moods and modes of being. The soundscape by Jacob Lekkerkerker intensifies your perception of space. Like Matisse making a spontaneous penlight drawing in the air, Children of the Light – although on a slightly larger scale - do not only represent the visible, but reveal also what lies beyond.
We've listed all MU COVID-19 rules for you: read them here. Since the installation can best be experienced when it is dark, we temporarily changed our opening times. Visit MU from Mon till Wed 12.00 - 18.00 and Thu till Sun 14.00 - 22.00.
