Sunset in The Hague

This year our Sun has set at the Hofvijver, in The Hague, October 6-9, including MuseumNacht (the night of the museums) on Saturday, October 8th. Sunset in The Hague is part of the Sunset Project, an on-going collaboration between Mike Rijnierse and Ludmila Rodrigues, featured in BlowUp Art Den Haag.

Sunset in The Hague is a light sculpture that reenacts the everyday phenomenon of the sun sinking into the horizon, yet it does so, inside of the city. The 360º panoramic view subverts our usual perspective of the sunset, questioning our relationship with time and image production, inviting for a durational experience. The Sunset was first presented in Delft, produced by Highlight Delft Festival, 2021.

BlowUp Art The Hague is part of BinnenhofBuiten, a project of The Hague & Partners, organizing events and activities during the renovation of the historical Netherlands’ Senate (“Binnenhof”). Header image: photo by Connie van Driel.
