A Living Painting at Thyssen Museum
Within the context of this encounter, the finalroom in the exhibition has been transformed into a film set in which the American filmmaker Ed Lachmann has produced a recreation of Hopper's work Morning Sun (1952). The installation, which will be open for the entire period of the exhibition, comprises a three-dimensional reproduction of the scene in the painting, revealing Hopper's use of cinematographic devices. It also investigates his images' ability to connect with the viewer's thoughts and emotions in order to create a visual narrative that is strikingly close to film. Visitors will become involved in this experience, which takes the form of a fascinating dialogue between Hopper's influence on film and its influence on his work.
