Light Pavilions

Light Pavilions is a series of constructions that form part of a video installation titled Quadern de bitàcola (Logbook) by the late Spanish artist Chema Alvargonzález at Tinglado 2, a 19th-century warehouse in the port of Tarragona used as an exhibition space for installation art. Three pavilions serve as beacons and as places to sit down, put on headphones, and watch the videos or browse the pages of the Quadern. Each of the three demountable pavilions consists of three prefabricated elements: two “L” shaped walls and a flat roof; constructed out of lightweight hollow steel sections and plywood. The L-shaped walls are illuminated by differently colored lights that create a play of colors on the pavilions’ wall surfaces while providing illumination and orientation within the large, cavernous historical port warehouse.
