For a full year, the artist Levi van Veluw has worked on The Relativity of Matter, an all-encompassing 350m2 installation for Marres. Once the doors close, the visitor enters into a maze of corridors, atmospheres and perspectives that challenge his senses. With The Relativity of Matter, Van Veluw presents an all-encompassing scenographic experience that immerses the visitor in a world of disparate forms of expression.
Levi van Veluw’s installation at Marres Capucijnenstraat 98 Maastricht allows a limited number of visitors. To ensure entry, please reserve a timeslot on our website.
The exhibition is not suited for children under the age of 8 years.
Marres also hosts a crowd sourcing campaign for this spectacular project with Voordekunst.
The cahier of the exhibition can be found in this special collection of exhibition cahiers.
The Relativity of Matter is part of a series of immersive exhibitions in Marres in which artists are invited not just to bring existing work and place it in the space, but to transform the whole house into a reservoir, a frame of thought and an installation of their work. Other exhibitions in this series are The Painted Bird (2016) and Dreaming Awake (2018).
