Projections on every wall, including the ceiling. Enjoy yourself as the masterpieces of Van Eyck dazzle the whole church, right up to the steeple!
Behold a digital interpretation of ‘The Adoration of the Mystic Lamb’, brought to you by four large dancing robot-arms, and experience this piece as you never have before. British artist Mat Collishaw gives this world famous triptych a breath of fresh air. Periodic live performances are the final touch.
“Lights on Van Eyck lets you discover Van Eyck’s impressive oeuvre in an accessible way. He is known for his techniques to reproduce colour and light very clearly. A marvellous discovery for people in the 15th century who had never seen such a representation of the world. The technology used by Lights on Van Eyck accentuates these bright lights and pure colours even more. The audience will be just as amazed by Van Eyck’s work as the medieval people first were centuries ago.” – Prof. Dr. Jan Dumolyn, Van Eyck Expert.
