Groningen

NUCLEUS is the title of the Noorderlicht 2017 International Photography Festival. This 24th edition is about science and the representation of it by photographers and artists. The exhibitions revolve around the human urge to want to understand and control the world around us. NUCLEUS (‘the core’) is about discovery and progress. NUCLEUS will take place from 22st October - 26th November in Groningen. NUCLEUS Art and science Artists often ask themselves the same questions as scientists and share many of the same principles: originality, creativity and an open mind. In NUCLEUS the two disciplines will enter into a dialogue with one another: science is a subject in the festival as well as a source of inspiration. The human urge to understand and control the world has already led to an unprecedented amount of knowledge given the relatively short time we have been roaming this planet. The achievements of scientific thought have permeated everyone’s lives. This process, which is now already being called the ‘fourth industrial revolution’, will only intensify in the coming years. Jos Jansen and Ben Feringa A striking part of NUCLEUS is the collaboration between the photographer Jos Jansen and Prof. Dr. Ben Feringa, Professor of Organic Chemistry at the University of Groningen. He is considered to be one of the world’s most creative chemists. In collaboration with the University of Groningen, Noorderlicht has invited Jansen to capture the essence of Ben Feringa’s work, which was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2016. Photographers The first photographers for the festival have been selected. Michael Najjar is a German photographer, adventurer and future astronaut. His impressive ongoing project ‘outer space’ deals with the latest developments in the exploration of the universe and the impact this will have on our future. Najjar is one of Virgin Galactic’s Pioneer Astronauts and is planning to become the first artist in space. The Irish photographer David Thomas Smith based his series ‘Arecibo’ on the same-named radio message that was sent into space from Puerto Rico in 1974. Smith compiled the nine photographs from this series out of thousands of images from Google Maps, reflecting with the work on the origin and evolution of humanity.

Straight above the roundabout in the main railway station bike parking facility is some sort of snowball. It’s huge and hangs upside down. The ball includes eleven plexiglass plates that resemble the contours of the station building while the LED lighting ensures continuous movement in the ball. The work was designed by Giny Vos, who was inspired by the contrast between the Stadsbalkon (city balcony) and the station building. The modern square provides the monumental station with new elegance while it hides part of the station from view. With  Second thought  Vos mirrors the station downwards and connects the two constructions below the ground.
