016/2011 a new arts venue

016/2011 a new arts venue, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

To finish the grand opening weekend of the Culture Capital Year, we went to check out the new LOGOMO venue. It’s an old train warehouse and engineering workshop, now refurbished into one of the main venues of this year’s cultural events. I like the idea of rough, industrial environments being transformed into something more human.

If you go there on foot, the shortest way from town is across this pedestrian bridge over the main railway lines. A new light and sound installation now decorates this bridge, too. Flickering red led lights, and irregular urban or machinery sounds. Something I’ve seen and heard at some airports abroad before.

In the cafe of the venue, I guess they have tried to illustrate railwaylines in the black and white decor. And the one orange line and lamp represent the signature colour of the Culture Capital Year. It is probably very trendy and modern, but I couldn’t spend long there. Somehow the surroundings make me very nervous. I feel like I have to rush to catch my train that’s about to leave. Maybe that is the idea – to have a very fast turnover of customers!
