Art | Navid Nuur | The After Glow III
Visual artist Navid Nuur is fascinated by the effect of human perception. His works are therefore an interplay between material, architecture and sensory phenomena. Light and darkness have been a recurring element in this for years. For Navid Nuur, light is anything but unambiguous. In his series THE AFTER GLOW, Navid considered its boundless possibilities.
THE AFTER GLOW III is his latest work of art, made for the NDSM shipyard. The art project was shown at three fixed locations, where it blended with the architecture of the old shipyard.
A fourth element of the project is a newspaper entitled THE AFTER GLOW, issue 3. This could be found at various points on the shipyard. The idea was that, after reading it as a whole, the pages could be detached and hung up as posters, allowing the reader to enjoy their own Navid Nuur on the wall.
THE AFTER GLOW III was on display at the NDSM shipyard from 18 to 21 April 2019.
