Ambereum (between Art Zone and Arena)

Find the artist
Get absorbed by golden colours and meditative music in a total installation

The Ambereum is a sensual haven that gives you room to dream, slow down and make relations regardless of social, cultural and spiritual differences.

The total installation Ambereum is inspired by the healing qualities of amber, Greek temples and the idea of merging Pagan culture and Mediterranean mythology in a contemporary nightclub-like amber-orange psychedelic space.

At night, the Ambereum sets the stage for techno raves, community and intimacy. During the day can have a break and purify your body and senses through atmospheric concerts, words, smells and drinks that slow you down and ground you.

Ambereum is created by Viron Erol Vert and is part of the sense exhibition Sensorium: A Laboratory for the Deceleration of the Body and for a New Politics of the Senses, curated by Solvej Helweg Ovesen and co-produced by the Riga International Biennale of Contemporary Art, 2018.

Vert was born in Germany in 1975 and lives and works in Berlin, Istanbul and Athens. He has studied at Universität der Künste Berlin, The Royal Academy, Antwerp and has a MA in fashion design at Hochschule für Technik und Wirtschaft Berlin and an MA in textile and experimental surface at Kunsthochschule Berlin. In 2018 Viron Erol Vert was the laureate of the Villa Romana prize.
