BACK LIGHT

 

An intervention in an art gallery. This work was not part of a gallery exhibition. With transparent phosphorescent paint I covered an existing tube lamp of this 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. The gallerist was not aware of this specific intervention. Phosphorescent paint on tube lamp / Antwerp / 2011.
