Electro-Rainbow by Lothar Götz
Electro-Rainbow is an installation by artist Lothar Götz initially commissioned for Pride month to celebrate LGBTQ+ culture.
The artwork is a site-specific piece which responds to the giant glass panels that make up the walls surface. The installation takes inspiration from the Progress Pride Rainbow Flag, incorporating them and adapting the stripes into a shifting rainbow of coloured triangles within the square panels. The artist also sees the work akin to the floor of a disco or club, with the patterns and colours dancing across the surface like rays of light on a dancefloor. This provides an echo of the importance of club culture in the development of LGBTQ+ identities.
