FRANK: Light halo


Tamar Frank: Light halo


light installation // Zvezda Park // 23.5.-18.6.

OPENING: Monday, 23rd May, at 21.30

The project was originally meant for the park in Assen, where a storm damaged some of the older trees. This event inspired the artist to come up with a project that would protect the trees from further accidents on a symbolic level. This is why she created minimalist lighting gear that surrounds the tree trunks and symbolizes, like a saints halo, the sanctity and integrity of trees that thus become symbols of life and its guardians. The artist with the luminous marking wishes to emphasize the importance of trees, as in the city parks they represent a haven of peace an tranquility while offering a passerby a place for rest and serenity.


TAMAR FRANK (1974, Amsterdam) graduated in 1997 at the Academy of fine arts in Maastricht. She's dealt with light as a medium already during her studies, and later founded her own studio Lightspace that has quickly established itself in her home country. Today she's creating various artistic projects in Europe and North America. She's received the Targetti second prize for her work in lighting art in Italy. Her works were exhibited in many lighting festival and numerous individual and group exhibitions.
