Other issues need to be taken into account in the case of temporary exhibitions:
Works are moved from their original environment to their new temporary setting – triggering the potential risk of light-sensitive works deteriorating. It is essential that a technical lighting system not only complies with regulatory requirements, but especially the required storage conditions of the work.
Events are transient by nature and must cater to the flow of high and concentrated numbers of visitors over a short time. This means a work of art will be experienced simultaneously from multiple points of view. The lighting installation must allow the work to be viewed comfortably from a variety of angles without having to continually adapt to the viewer’s perspective.
The juxtaposition of works without any specific continuity in terms of material, size or even semantic content, requires us to handle the impact of potentially contrasting lighting between works that are on display and next to one another. In such cases, lighting fixtures need to be arranged carefully during installation, smoothly and quickly fine-tuning the quality, quantity and distribution of the light flow.
