Lightspace to launch book celebrating 20th anniversary

(Netherlands) – The crowd-funded publication will celebrate the works of Tamar Frank throughout the past 20 years.

Tamar Frank, light artist and founder of Lightspace is celebrating the 20th anniversary of her practice with the launch of a new publication.

The book will serve as a retrospective, bringing together all of her work from the past 20 years, allowing readers the chance to see works that have since disappeared. “I make many artworks in public spaces, but even more temporary installations, where all that remains are the photos that I take,” Frank said. The centrefold will also feature a special artwork created by Frank that can only be seen in the dark.

While Frank has already received financial support from the Tijl Fonds – a Dutch culture fund specifically for female artists over the age of 40 – she has set up a crowd-funding page to raise the rest of the funds.

All donators to the campaign will have their name printed in the book, with increasing benefits for those who pledge more money, ranging from receiving a signed copy of the book, to attending a reception at the Angle Gallery in Amsterdam, to receiving a special, limited artwork created specifically for the anniversary: the multiple. This square light panel, limited to 20 signed and numbered pieces, slowly changes colour, and offers a unique opportunity, as it is the first time that Frank’s work has been available to buy.

Frank is expected to release the book in November 2018, at a special presentation at the Angle Gallery.
