OVO

DETAILS

Concept & set design by Marcos Viñals Bassols

Sculpture by Pol Marchandise & Stof Hadi

Lighting design by Koert Vermeulen

A sensory experience to live, in the heart of a luminous egg, symbol of birth, unity and perfection. The purpose of OVO is to offer an art object, global and multi-sensory in scope, to which a dimension of a luminous event is added, provided by the plays of light and the visual and acoustic animations. The visitor is invited to walk on the water to reach the interior, as if to vanish into a metaphysical mist. The watery surface reflects the egg-like structure, the lighting, and also the silhouettes of the visitors which bring the surface to life by their passage. Seen from inside, the sense of intensity, of being drawn towards the sky, underlines the dynamism conveyed by the forms of the structure.
