'Luminescence' Bertil Nilsson's new project at the Roundhouse, printed directly to large-scale mirrors

31 March 2014
Metro is once again delighted to work with Swedish-born artist Bertil Nilsson on his most recent project Luminescence, a site-specific installation commissioned by the Roundhouse, Camden for CircusFest 2014.  Bertil is renowned for his recognisable work which takes inspiration from movement and the human form collaborating extensively with dancers and circus artists.

Bertil started work on Luminescence in February this year using lasers and other geometric lights to contrast with the organic nature of the body as an experiment in direct response to the architecture of the Roundhouse foyer. He worked in close collaboration with circus artists to discover ways to use those lights in a creative and meaningful way, with the intention of showing circus in a new light.

In the presentation of this exhibition, Bertil has explored new techniques and processes that engage with the fabric of the Roundhouse building, including the use of translucent and luminescence media and projections.  With the help of Metro’s expert technicians and the use of our recently acquired Direct to Media printer the final images have been reproduced by printing directly onto large-scale mirrors, acrylic and clear static window vinyl. This is a first for Metro, as never before have we produced images directly onto these substrates showing just a small example of the wonderful versatility of this new direct to media printer.
