Museum Voorlinden

Museum Voorlinden wants to connect people, art, nature and architecture as one of the few private museums in the Netherlands. Consequently Voorlinden is an oasis of tranquility in the hectic city where people can go marvel and be surprised. The total experience of art, nature and architecture is key in the way of presenting and approaching visitors.

Therefore it is no surprise that Skyspace by James Turrell is part of the collection. In a constructed room with a square hole in the roof  you look straight at the sky over Wassenaar. Turrell links the physical and the ephemeral, the objective with the subjective, creating a gateway to the contemplation of light, time and landscape.

The artist’s lifelong research in the field of human visual and psychological perception leads to the construction of controlled environments for a culminating transformative sensory experience of light. Meanwhile he  continuously works on his magnum opus called Roden Crater. In short a massive land art project in progress in the Painted Desert region of Northern Arizona.
