Artwork Light exhibition highlights On display

In his ‘Shallow Space Constructions’, James Turrell combines architecture, sculpture, light and space to completely envelop the viewer in a coloured atmosphere. Raemar, Blue 1969 is one of the earliest and most significant of these. This immersive spatial environment plays with our experience of perception and the effect of light in space. Blue light radiates from LED light placed behind a partition that consequently appears to float at the back of the gallery space.

在詹姆斯·特瑞尔的“浅空间建构”系列作品中,他将建筑、雕塑、光和空间结合在一起,观者被完全笼罩在一种具有色彩的氛围中。他于1969年创作的《雷玛尔:蓝》是其中最早也是最重要的作品之一。这个身临其境的空间与我们的感知体验以及空间中光线的影响有关。蓝色的光从放置在隔板后面的LED灯中照射出来,看起来似乎漂浮在展厅空间的后方。
