The Biennale Kijkduin is an international exhibition at the southerly beach resort of Kijkduin in The Hague. Sea and dunes form the natural setting for the monumental works of glass and light art.
The Biennale asks artists and designers to visualise the chemical mentality in modern glass and light installations. Appropriate, as glass and transparency are inseparable from chemistry. First and foremost, glass itself is the chemical compound of mainly fused sand, calcium and sodium carbonate. And as far as science is concerned, without glass flasks and test tubes there would be no experiments, and no clarity in processes. Glass and light art is the medium par excellence for the investigative adventure of the ‘CHEMISTRY – Creating new Worlds’ exhibition.
Lucy + Jorge Orta will present 'Glass, Light and Nature experiences', a newly commissioned body of work which is part of the artists' ongoing project OrtaWater.
