Atelier des Lumières: A Special Journey into Van Gogh’s Masterpieces

It is an extraordinary exhibition where there is no museum, there are no solid paintings and yet it is a feast for all the senses and for the soul.  Van Gogh’s (1853-1890) genius brushworks become alive in a mesmerizing movement of images, colors, light and sound. The irises, sunflowers, olive groves, haystacks, his self-portrait and more, are all projected for 30 minutes on a surface of 3300m², covering all over from the floor across the walls and up to the ceiling 10 meters high.

It is an exhilarating experience. The “multisensory” digital art exhibition plunges one into a world that is uncommonly sensual and almost palpable. Time and place lose their edge and one senses being teleported boundlessly in the changing spheres of light, color and music. The mastery of his art becomes magnified by the emanating power of light, projection and music.
