De Faun, one of the locations of the Noorderlicht International Fotofestival NUCLEUS, is closed due to health and safetyreasons regarding the construction of the building. All the works are reproduced and placed in the Noorderlicht Photogallery and the Der Aa-kerk.
On this 24th Noorderlicht International Photofestival science is a subject as well as a source of inspiration. The human urge to understand and control the world has already led to an unprecedented amount of knowledge given the relatively short time we have been roaming this planet. The achievements of scientific thought have permeated everyone’s lives. This process, which is now already being called the ‘fourth industrial revolution’, will only intensify in the coming years. Artists often ask themselves the same questions as scientists and share many of the same principles like originality, creativity and an open mind. In NUCLEUS the two disciplines will enter into a dialogue with one another
The works of Robin Alysha Clemens en Robert Shults are reproduced and visible in the Noorderlicht Photogallery. The series of Annabel Elgar, Wayne Barrar, Kate Robertson, Ryoichi Kurokawa and Beatrice Pediconi have been replaced in the Der Aa-kerk and integrated in the current exhibition, which connects with the theme of the works presented in De Faun. The works of the photographers Alberto Giuliani, Peeter Laurits, Phil Hastings and James Nagakawa & Michael Hamburger are presented on 4 digital screens in de Der Aa-kerk.
