"Do All Oceans Have Walls?" 17.05. 1998 - 26.07.1998
"Whirlwind", Electronically controlled installation presented in “Städtische Galerie Bremen”
Inspired by his visual research in the direct surroundings of the exhibition area and the exhibition room’s characteristics, the artist Claude Lévêque created his artwork “Whirlwind”. The big hall dominated by a row of columns in its longitudinal axis turns into a space of light kinetical, three-dimensional images and poetical visions, which the artist integrates in the room’s unique architecture.
(Translated from catalogue text)
20 local and international artists participated in the exhibition project „Do all Oceans Have Walls“ launched by GAK (association of modern art)
Along the Weser river, they produced art works, which are typical for the urban situation in Bremen and therewith created some kind of urban redefinition. Focus of interest was the direct face-off with the public to encourage new experiences with the environment.
