Private Light

Private Light

Light – natural as well as artificial – plays a key role in Titia Ex’s works. The medium light is iconic in that, by using light, Ex manipulates the mood and experience of any space. Her light artworks are rarely individual pieces as, most of the time, they get meaning by engaging in dialogue with the environment. For example, by addressing the history of a location or by playing with the spectator’s perspective.

The work of art ‘Private Light’ focuses on the history of the former light bulb factory and its surroundings. Once this factory was the highest point of Eindhoven. You’ll experience the public space and its hidden consumers all over again. With a quiet gesture, the work of art pulls the factory out of its shadows and, for a brief moment, the city becomes intimate: PRIVATE LIGHT.
