The in situ light installation created by Club Efemeer for the Horst Festival comes to life at night above one of the lakes of the site. This installation behaves like a mirror looking back in time reproducing the colours and gradients of the sky present at daytime.
The medieval castle and its surroundings have a deep-seated romantic character which it sheds after sunset. The night and the music transform the site into a greedy space. Club Efemeer’s installation re-establishes the relation with the romantic environment by transposing the atmospheric hues into an abstract, minimalist light sculpture.
This everyday natural phenomena — the setting of the sun and the ensuing changes of colour of the sky — is captured, interpreted, delayed and framed. The installation, devoid of its original context, hovers between object and event.
The work is not independent from its constituent elements nor is it permanent. Like a color swatch, the light floats above the lake, only visible when the smoke interferes with the light plane. The installation evolves continuously as time progresses.
