Taraxa – Gun Gordillo

Date: February 1 – 24 from 00.00 – 23.59
Site: GoBoat, Islands Brygge 10, 2300 Copenhagen S

GoBoats’ maritime pavilion will as a part of Copenhagen Light Festival be lit by an installation entitled Taraxa by Gun Gordillo. The installation can be enjoyed both by the water, on land, and in the air (from Langebro). Gordillo’s Taraxa is part of her unique aesthetic: “There is a decidedly personal angle to her way of dealing with neon light which gives it a poetic dimension in marked contrast to the harsh stridency of advertising signs”.

The neon light artwork is from 2013 and is 1,20 meters high.
