“Night Forms” Closing Soon at Grounds For Sculpture

MULTI-SENSORY EXPERIENCE: “Night Forms,” the third and final installment of Grounds For Sculpture’s partnership with Klip Collective, closes on April 7.

“Night Forms,” a site-specific multi-sensory experience on view at Grounds For Sculpture (GFS) in Hamilton since November 2023, will close soon on April 7. This third and final installment of GFS’ partnership with Klip Collective has more than a dozen installations from the second season’s “Infinite Wave” along with a reprise of Froghead Rainbow, one of the most popular works from Klip’s inaugural project at GFS, “dreamloop.” The exhibition is designed to engage with Grounds For Sculpture’s art and horticulture collections and invites visitors to explore the grounds after dark.

“Night Forms’” after-hours experience is a synthesis of light, sound, and video projection mapping, a process pioneered by Klip Collective. Each illuminated installation offers a unique, layered dialogue with either an artwork or feature from the horticultural collection. Popular spotlighted sculptures include Bruce Beasley, Dorion; Isaac Witkin, Eolith; and Michelle Post, The Oligarchs, as well as a favorite horticultural feature, the Red Maple Allée. The installations are situated at intervals along Grounds For Sculpture’s Main Loop path and their patterns of light are syncopated to original soundtracks.

While viewing “Night Forms,” visitors have the rare opportunity to explore the park at night. For those who wish to extend their exploration of the grounds, a digital tour highlighting a mix of 20 works from GFS’ horticultural and sculpture collections is offered along the Main Loop path.

“Night Forms” is open Friday through Sunday, sunset to 10 p.m.; the last tickets are available at 9 p.m.

Advance timed ticket reservations are highly recommended to ensure entry. Reservations can be made at
