'Water' Little Sun Blackout

6.00PM Fri 24 Apr 2020
GOMA | Ticketed External

As part of ‘Water’ we invite you to explore the exhibition in the dark using only the light of Riverbed artist Olafur Eliasson’s Little Sun solar-powered lamps! The Little Sun lamps were originally developed by the artist and engineer Frederik Ottesen to focus attention on the power of solar light to improve lives across the world, in places where access to light after dark can be expensive.

Little Sun Blackouts were part of Little Sun’s launch at Tate Modern in London and have since been featured only a few times worldwide, so GOMA’s Little Sun Blackout is sure to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Ticket includes your own Little Sun Original solar lamp to take home (RRP $39.95).

“The atmosphere was amazing throughout the Blackout. When the lights are out, it’s like being under the surface of the ocean with the little lamp lights popping up all around you – truly magical! The darkness sharpens your senses and you can really go explore. In that way, the Little Sun lamp is like a magnifying glass, allowing the kids to examine everything up close.” – Louise Hauerberg, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Head of Boernehuset (Louisiana’s children’s department).
