A mysterious red glow moves sporadically through the operator’s cabin of an old crane located next to a warehouse complex. Would someone be working there? And if so, with what?
Perhaps with managing Har Hollands’ light lines, which mimic the construction of the crane’s arm. The soft yellow lines light up alternatingly and together form a variety of spatial patterns. They disrupt the structure of the crane as we know it in a surprising way, and suddenly transform the old industrial monument into a work of light art.
With Between the Lines Holland demonstrates that the crane can be much more than a retired machine. For Hollands, elements and rhythms in urban constructions, which often go unnoticed in our day to day, form the basis of a magical play of light. The city comes to life in a new way in ‘the domain of the fantasy’, as Hollands beautifully describes the night.
