OPEN FOR GUIDED TOURS EVERY SUNDAY

 

Every sunday, all through the year we offer guided tours inside James Turrells magical light installation: Ganzfeld: Double Vision. Ganzfeld  is built inside an old water reservoir from the 1920s, where the room is filled with light and color which is a both visual and physical experience for visitors. You will experience Ganzfeld: Double Vision where the guide tells you about the artist and artwork. You will also see Skyspace: the color beneath which only can be fully experienced during the sunrise or sunset. The Sunday guided tours are free of charge with a drop-in system. See the hours below:

JAMES TURRELL

 

The American artist James Turrell works with perception, color, light and space. Turrell's artwork engages the observer and lets us experience visual impressions we have not seen the like of. Skyspace is Turrell's most famous work, and has become his lifelong project and today there are more than 80 completely different Skyspaces around the world.

 

SUNRISE & SUNSET SESSIONS

 

The coloured light in Skyspace can only be fully experienced  at sunrise or sunset by booking a private guided tour. The artwork is a specially designed room with an opening in the ceiling, directly to the sky. The light in the installation changes color during the session in order to influence the viewer's perception of their surroundings.
