Artist: Aleksandra Stratimirovic
Brilliance is a site-specific light work created for Sweden’s Nationalmuseum. A dynamic and colorful light story, inspired by Nationalmuseum’s exhibition “Pär Engsheden and Sara Danius Nobel dresses”.
Brilliance shimmers like a melody, sometimes like a whisper, sometimes like a scream. A light inspiration in the winter darkness.
Installation supported by: Osram, E:cue, Control Dept
