Singing in the Dark is a retrospective of works made by Dutch artist Giny Vos between 1985 and 2010. From Work to Do (1985) to White Noise (2009), her light installations stand out against the night sky. Whether a station forecourt in Apeldoorn or a large public space in Delhi, the specific location for which the installation is made takes on a poetic charge. The work responds to the urban surroundings and at the same time adds something that transcends this space. The location and the activities that take place there are no longer taken for granted. Attentive viewers or chance passers-by encounter an instant of brilliance that dazzles them for a moment. The texts in Singing in the Dark show which interpretations – and associations – Giny Vos' work admits. They also offer a good insight into the complexity of her works in the public domain.
