BACK LIGHT

 

An intervention in a gallery after opening hours. This work is not part of a gallery exhibition. With transparent phosphorescent paint I covered an existing tube lamp of the gallery. When the gallery was open, the light of the tube lamp fed the phosphorescent paint. After closing time the tube lamp remained glowing in the dark for a while. Phosphorescent paint on tube lamp / Antwerp / 2011.
