Giny Vos – The Painted Chat

text and image roberto voorbij

Although the work is already six years old it looks as if it was just yesterday unveiled. A sign of strong art and a clear example of the art of art maintenance. Giny Vos has for this formerly totally anonymous municipal warehouse for salt, bankruptcy estates and the parks and gardens department developed a light sculpture consisting of 6,500 LED lights. After sunset is the contrast only really being maximized between the industrial area and the rather in Las Vegas expected enchanting light message. Every ten seconds terms follow one another that are derived from activities in this particular building and words relating to its immediate surroundings Westpoort. It’s particularly the unknown terms that cause another contrast of extra extra large size and sheer poetry.
