TUNNEL OF LOVE - Public artwork in Rotterdam iconic monument
Using thousands of fluorescent heart-shaped ornaments, a dazzling temporary visual spectacle is fashioned onto the ceiling, walls and floor of the Rotterdam iconic Maastunnel. Blacklights replace existing lights, making thousands of fluorescent hearts glow and float on their endless background. The 600 meters length artwork offers every visitor an immersive experience.
The artists duo Madje Vollaers en Pascal Zwart (VOLLAERSZWART), well known for city dressing projects in Istanbul, Amsterdam, Milan and Rotterdam initiated this ‘longest artwork one can think of’.
With Tunnel of Love VOLLAERSZWART drowns us in a hallucinating fantasy world. After one enters the pedestrian tunnel, nobody can escape the love virus. The Tunnel of Love is a love declaration from VOLLAERSZWART to the people of the city of Rotterdam, a city of 176 nationalities, and its visitors.
Tunnel of Love (free admission). 8 - 15 February, including Valentine Day 14 February Maastunnel, Rotterdam
