Les Orpailleurs de Lumière - 2012_11_17_234451

Les Orpailleurs de Lumière - Sleepless night in full light
GLOW - International Forum of Light in Art and Architecture
Eindhoven 2012 - 7th Edition - 'Façades & Faces: Portraits of the City'
From November, 10th to 17th 2012, the city center of Eindhoven turns again into a forum of interventions, installations, performances and events based on the phenomena of artificial light.
Location: Catharinakerk
About the project:

The track "Night on the Bald Mountain" by Mussorgsky is the basis for the installation of Les Orpailleurs the Lumière. It is inspired by a story of Nikolai Gogol. He describes a village that is visited by the devil as the night falls. Nightmarish scenes follow one another until the clock strikes and the day breaks again. Like the story the music of Mussorgsky is exciting and disturbing. But after the bell sounds, the music changes into a leisurely pace, and it is quiet again.

In Sleepless night in full light the devil is replaced by a conductor. He gets caught up in the rhythm of the music and sees visions: animated music notes, orchestra members who turn into monsters, flying instruments. The church seems to be haunted. Until the clock strikes and the conductor comes back to his senses. The sun rises and the church is shrouded in a magical light.
