STARRY NIGHT

IVANA JELIC AND PAVLE PETROVIC

SERBIA

The sight of stars makes me dream,” wrote Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890). This is how one of his most famous paintings came about: The Starry Night (1889). What in turn inspired the Serbian Ivana Jelic and Pavle Petrovic. We unfortunately don’t get to see a starry night much in a city like Amsterdam due to light pollution. The artists present us with a radiant but artificial version of the painting. The cypresses and town in the original painting have been replaced by canal houses and trees; and Van Gogh’s brushstrokes by nearly 1,400 illuminated acrylic tubes. Now, we’re able to dream as well.
