Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukács – Life of Ornament – Viewmaster Projects
From December 1st 2016 until April 30th 2017, Life of Ornament is on view at the Sphinxquarter in Maastricht. Life of Ornament is a cross-over project between cultural heritage and digital art in public space. Viewmaster Projects commissioned artist duo Persijn Broersen & Margit Lukács for two videos where the famous print décor of Sphinx and Société Céramique will be brought to life. The videos are both a tribute to the famous designs of Maastricht’s industry as a contemporary visual story where different cultures and diverse style periods intermingle. During the project the videos can be seen every night from 7.00 until 12.00 PM.
Life of Ornament is a collaboration between Viewmaster Projects, Sociaal Historisch Centrum Limburg, the town Maastricht and Sphinxquarter. The Mondriaan Fund granted Broersen & Lukács with a Project Investment for Visual Artists for the Viewmaster Projects.
