THE AFTER GLOW III | by Navid Nuur
Navid Nuur (Teheran, 1976) is fascinated by the functioning of human perception. His artworks are therefore an interplay between material, architecture and sensory phenomena. Light and darkness are a recurring element in his works of art.
For Navid Nuur, light is anything but unambiguous. In his series THE AFTER GLOW he considers the unbridled possibilities of light with an almost metaphysical curiosity. THE AFTER GLOW III is his latest work of art, which was created together with the NDSM-werf. The light art project intervenes in four locations with the architecture of the old shipyard and adds a mysterious nocturnal brilliance to this location.
LOCATION 1: ON THE X-HELLING
LOCATION 2: SQUARE AT DE TRAMMETJES
LOCATION 3: HEAD OF MS. VAN RIEMSDIJKWEG

A fourth element of this project is a newspaper titled THE AFTER GLOW, issue 3. It can be found at various locations on the construction site. After reading it as a whole, you can detach the pages and hang them as your own Navid Nuur poster(s) on your wall.
THE AFTER GLOW III will be shown at the NDSM-werf from Friday 18 January t/m Sunday 21 April. Because it is an light art project, it best can be visited after sunset or before sunrise. We recommend to bring a phone or camera with flash to use on the installations and make them really come to life!
