Grab a new perspective of the city by hanging out inside an enormous eye

If you find yourself in The Netherlands anytime soon, you might want to make your way to the southern city of ‘s-Hertogenbosch. Here’s where you’ll find an astonishing art installation of five giant eyes taking over the city until early November. Created by Pascal Leboucq and directed by Lucas De Man, EYE offers an audio-visual theatrical experience and an opportunity to see the city like never before-by climbing inside and hanging out on the side of a building.

New Heroes, the company putting the installation together, reflects on the installation: ‘Lucas humanizes the city, literally, by giving it eyes. With a radical physical theatrical experience in this installation he creates new spaces in public space in which he challenges visitors to relate their Self to other Selves in the city. In this performance he confronts the visitor with his existential loneliness and human vulnerability. Visitors are given a moment to observe their own, very personal vulnerability and the possibility to share this with others in public space’.

To gain access, you’ll need to be over 16 years, weigh no more than 120kg and shell out $14.50 for a single ticket.
