The Relativity of Matter Installation by Levi van Veluw

March 16th, 2016 by retail design blog

For a whole year, Levi van Veluw has worked on The Relativity of Matter, an all-encompassing freestanding installation, to be placed in a building, a museum or an exhibition space. Once the doors close, the visitor enters into a maze of corridors, doors, atmospheres, perspectives and colours that challenge him in a sensory manner. In Marres House for Contemporary Culture, NL, the first location where it is shown, an area of 350m2 is transformed into an unrecognizable and atmospheric dreamscape.

The installation contains many of the elements that populated van Veluw’s previous works and also marks a shift in the work, which has evolved from a formal and material research into an exploration of the dark themes of fear, loneliness and loss of control. With The Relativity of Matter, van Veluw presents an all-encompassing scenographic experience that immerses the visitor in a world of disparate forms of expression.

The Relativity of Matter is a movable installation. At Marres, it is adapted to the shape of the 18th-century house, but in the next locations it can be equally well adapted to contemporary exhibition spaces, or classical museum galleries.
