Nexus means an important connection between the parts of a system or a group of things. This impressive installation is – literally and metaphorically – a huge, complex structure consisting of different compartments that create a unity together.

In Vicsek’s artworks, 200 light pipes create a smooth movement that moves upwards into the sky. The inspiration for this artwork originates from the experience of the artist as a new inhabitant of Amsterdam; how do connections between existing and new residents arise?
