Children of the Light is the collaboration of Amsterdam-based visual artists Christopher Gabriel (1980 Oslo) and Arnout Hulskamp (1978 Amsterdam). Gabriel and Hulskamp met at the progressive nightclub TrouwAmsterdam where they both had a residency. As a duo they tend to both entrance and mystify the public, creating abstract and highly spherical scenography’s and installations using decor, light, haze, reflections and animations.
Children of the Light debuted at the legendary Darkside concert in Paris (2012), receiving critical acclaim: “It feels like I’m in between a mise-en-scène à la Olafur Eliasson and passages of Riders on the Storm”. This was followed up with concerts at Amsterdam Dance Event, PitchFork Festival Paris and at Art Basel Miami. Their game changing ‘live scenography’ became part of Darkside’s 2014 world tour.
Currently Children of the Light is touring with their live scenography for HOWLING ( Ry X & Frank Wiedermann) New installations can be seen at HORST festival and GLOW Next. Further, Children of the Light will close the ZERO exhibition during Museum Night at Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam with their installation ZEROTIME.
