SKALAR IN Amsterdam
10.01. – 05.02.2020 at Gashouder
A monumental audio-visual kinetic art installation SKALAR by light artist Christopher Bauder and musician Kangding Ray lands in Amsterdam in January 2020. This large-scale artistic production is a collaboration between Berlin's design and art studio WHITEvoid, Amsterdam electronic music promoters Audio Obscura and one of the city’s most important cultural venues, Westergas. Last seen in Berlin in 2018 where it delighted many thousands of people with its blend of kinetic mirrors, perfectly synchronized moving lights and intense sonic soundscapes, SKALAR will reside in the iconic Gashouder in Amsterdam from January 10 to February 5, 2020.
SKALAR reshapes the landscape of exhibitions by bringing a moving audio-visual installation and art show to the iconic Gashouder in Amsterdam. As a special highlight, Christopher Bauder and Kanding Ray play several exclusive SKALAR live shows — an expanded and intensified version of the animation cycle. The artists bring choreographed light and electronic music to life in real-time. Every live show is a unique experience.
Westergas is the cultural hub in Amsterdam’s Westerpark that includes spaces such as the legendary Gashouder. With a history stretching back to 1902, the impressive site plays host to many innovative audio-visual spectacles, making it a perfect fit for SKALAR.
