Axel Vervoordt Gallery: Superlative art, effectively illuminated with Parscan and Pollux from ERCO

Axel Vervoordt created atmospherically dark exhibition spaces on the site of an historic distillery just outside Antwerp. He now displays high-calibre art within the confines of former granaries and silos - and optimally illuminated with appropriately efficient and flexible LED lighting tools from ERCO.

Over the past two decades, the renowned Belgian art collector and gallery owner Axel Vervoordt has gradually acquired the site of a former distillery on the picturesque Albert Canal, located between Liège and Antwerp. He converted the industrial heritage site to create spectacular spaces for art in addition to new offices and apartments. Exhibitions change four times a year in the gallery rooms which were built in the former granaries and silos. These house paintings and drawings, photography and media art as well as sculptures in various formats. ERCO LED lighting tools provide maximum flexibility and efficiency in the rooms of the Axel Vervoordt Gallery: with a minimal number of luminaires, disparate works of art are illuminated with maximum impact and pinpoint precision.

The Spherolit lenses of the installed Parscan and Pollux spotlights can be exchanged without tools so that the lighting can be simply adapted to the new spatial situation and various exhibits. exhibition organisers can convert luminaires from narrow beam spotlights to wide beam floodlights for example. Asymmetric light distributions such as oval flood and wallwash are also possible, enabling the light beam to be optimally matched to the paintings and sculptures on display. Projection of the light via lenses achieves high-lumen accents even with low wattages. With LED modules of 6 and 12 watts respectively, Pollux and Parscan also feature compact luminaire dimensions. The spotlights have a highly discreet appearance in the atmospherically dark rooms of the converted industrial buildings and the viewer's attention is focused solely on the light and the works of art.
