The arch (Buen)
– Viera Collaro
Date: 1-24 February 2019 (Permanent)
Site: K.B. Hallen, Peter Bangs Vej 147, 2000 Frederiksberg
Buen (The Arc) is a lighting installation, created for the new K.B. Hallen. The bow is based on the richness of colours of the rainbow and the colors belonging to nature. The rainbow has a rich cultural-historical symbolism, whose meaning and function have changed over the years. But above all, the work is about the light in nature; it represents an unfolding of the prismatic breaks which the white light of the sun goes through, in order to create a variety of colours. The rainbow is a symbol of happiness and infinity that can be found and thus recognized throughout the world.
