“But when we sit together, close,’ said Bernard, ‘we melt into each other with phrases. We are edged with mist.
We make an unsubstantial territory.” - The Waves by Virginia Woolf
Shimmer – a new exhibition space in Rotterdam South presents the video installation Waves by American artist Lisa Tan
at the Goethe-Institute. Inspired by Virginia Woolf’s experimental novel “The Waves,” Lisa Tan’s video “Waves” imagines how consciousness forms in relation to society and its technologies. Shimmer is an exhibition space that works with a studio-like mentality where knowledge arrises through participation and experimentation. Shimmer’s first collaboration in the north of Rotterdam is with the Goethe-Institute for Museum Night 2018.
