Through the looking glass

06/ Through the looking glass is an art walk connecting Papegaaisbolwerk with Ambachtsplein in Leiden. EST brought together a diverse group of local and international artists with a focus on light and video based work. By doing this, EST literally set Papegaaisbolwerk in a new light, thus enhancing its placemaking role.

Through the looking glass is an exhibition in the dark hours in February under RIVM rules including curfew. Therefore, works shine between ±18:00 and 20:30 CET. Doors remain closed. This exhibition is for everyone to be seen while walking or cycling in Singelpark Leiden. Through the looking glass.

The work of Leiden based artist Jos Agasi is to be viewed within the fence. EST opens the fence on Thursday Friday and Saturday.

Artists involved: Jos Agasi, Anneke Bosma, Barthel Brussee, Sándor Hötte, Sarah Klein, Mathias Krissmer and David Kwan.

Venues: Papegaaisbolwerk 18 and 20 and the kiosk near Langegracht 70D Leiden, the Netherlands.

Special thanks goes out to Leiden City Council, ATELIER jelle verheijen, Cultuurfonds Leiden and Lucas Van Leyden Fonds.

Sponsored by City of Leiden and Lucas Van Leyden Fonds.

Through the looking glass is about wonder and amazement, about awareness and seeing through. From outside to inside and, about light in darkness.
