Artistic illumination for port facilities

 Culture and identity 

During one month, the port silo of Malteries d’Alsace in Strasbourg (France), will have a new artistic face. The port and SPL Deux-Rives challenged Prof. Thomas Voltzenlogel and 8 visual arts students from Haute école des arts du Rhin to reflect on the poetic value of shadows in these times dominated by light. Their response came using gobo projections, exploring the Rhine mythology and the industrial and port history of the Coop district. The light shows will be visible until the 6th of November 2020. In other port cities like Las Palmas de Gran Canarias (Spain), the first port-city visual and plastic arts festival will take place in November. The event will be organized by Factoría de Cohesión and will reflect on the connection between port and city.
