For the first time, Serralves in the Light, will transform
the entire Serralves Park into an impactful light exhibition allowing a
dazzling nocturnal experience of this magnificent space.
The lighting design was created by Nuno Maya in
collaboration with the Serralves Park team. This large outdoors exhibition
features powerful light and colour dynamics to create a magical atmosphere that
envelops the entire Park offering stunning perspectives of this outstanding
natural and architectural heritage.
By resorting to various light sources, such as LED, halogen,
hmi, laser or video, new and ambitious visual experiences have been created
that transport visitors across different perceptions between the real and the
imaginary while establishing static or kinetic dialogues in 28 installations
along a 3 -kilometre trajectory that crosses the entire Park.
The introduction of colour, sound and visual effects
allow for an unusual experience of the Park. Light installations have turned the space into
immersive environments that transport us to the different seasons of the year
and allow for a connection with the various natural elements in the Park, such
as water and vegetation, and offer an original experience of nature’s luminous
manifestations, such as the sun, the moon, reflections, rainbows or the atmospheric
This surprizing trajectory of light was conceived as a
one-way route as it crosses several reference points in the Park offering the
public a varied and complete sensorial journey.
