From 22 June 2019, the Groninger Museum presents Daan Roosegaarde – Presence: the artist and innovator’s first major museum solo project. Roosegaarde has developed this groundbreaking new interactive artwork specially for the Groninger Museum. Unlike most exhibitions, which demand that art should be viewed from a distance, this installation encourages physical interaction.
Where he previously displayed his work in the external public domain, the artist now adopts the internal museum space for the first time, with a large-scale, phosphorescent landscape which changes colour and shape because of the presence of visitors.
