What is there
We visited the Atelier des Lumières as part of the Dalí / Gaudí exhibition, in January 2022.
The Atelier des Lumières primarily consists of a large industrial-style space structured by several partitions.
In the center, there is a small pavilion and a completely mirrored room. In the pavilion, changing works are projected as a whole – in contrast to the rest of the exhibition, where the works are constantly in motion. The mirrored room displays only one work at a time, but it is multiplied a thousandfold into infinity.
You can reach an elevated gallery via a staircase, from which you can perceive the projections from a holistic perspective. However, you won’t be able to see everything at once due to the partition elements in the room. Additionally, the gallery itself is also “animated.” In its rear part, also separated by a wall, you will find some boards with more information about the two artists and the exhibition. Below the gallery, there is a smaller room where the digital exhibition “Everything” is currently being shown.
The exhibitions are produced with high quality, whether it’s Dalí, Gaudí, van Gogh, or Da Vinci. Each exhibition consists of a sequence of digitized artworks that are projected on the walls on a massive scale. The images themselves move, or only certain elements within them do. They change quickly or slowly, and you are constantly in motion, sometimes even turning around to see what’s happening behind you. You wouldn’t want to miss anything! 😉
Producing such an exhibition is a very complex process, which is why they usually run for many months, increasing the chances of having the opportunity to visit them yourself 😉
In the current exhibition, you will see works by the artists such as: Marc Chagall and Paul Klee, until January 7th, 2024
When we went in 2022, Antoni Gaudí and Salvador Dalí were the main characters.
Antoni Gaudí: The facade and interior of Casa Batlló, as well as the facades of the Sagrada Familia. The brightly orange interior of the Sagrada Familia is also a digital wonder to behold!
Salvador Dalí: In this exhibition we have encounter many, many paintings by Dalí, as well as elements from his Theatre-Museum in Figueres. His chosen home in Cadaques/Portlligat was also featured. Particularly impressive was his ceiling fresco of the “Wind Room” (referring to the Catalan north wind, Tramuntana) in the Theatre-Museum: the enormous feet of Dali and his wife Gala simply dominate the entire space.
