turn panic into magic
2 February 2023 - 9 March 2023
In our window: Erwin Thomasse with ‘Turn Panic into Magic’. A light work that slowly extinguishes at the pace of your breath. For this, he used the tempo of the breathing method used to prevent panic attacks. Thus, he asks us how, through physical action, we turn a difficult emotion into something beautiful.
Erwin Thomasse’s work ‘Turn Panic into Magic’ was developed in collaboration with the Van Abbemuseum in 2021/22. Since then, the sentence has stood man-sized on the museum’s roof. The five smaller light boxes that form part of the work are on display as part of the festival The Bluest Monday 2023 can be seen at various locations in Amsterdam including Bradwolff Projects!
