Katrin Fridriks participates in Little Sun's latest project

12 July 2017 by Rebecca Maher

Yesterday, The Solar Panel Collection opened at TOA Berlin, in the Haus of Tech Area. This very special project has been founded to help children in Rwanda and raise awareness about renewable energy. The exhibition involves a range of artists who have created pieces that will be sold online in a benefit auction, with proceeds going to Little Sun’s Solar Kids School Program, a humanitarian project that supplies sustainable, solar-powered light to schools in Rwanda.  

 

Katrin Fridriks is one of the artists that has created an installation for the exhibition, her piece is called Northern Lights, after the enchanting natural wonder that only shows it’s vibrant colours in a clear, unpolluted sky. The piece is made of two solar panels mounted to a steel holder giving the impression of a little house.

 

 

Visitors are encouraged to explore the artwork and will find Katrin’s beautiful paintings when they pass through her solar panel house and look up at the inner roof. With the use of small sunflower shaped lights, powered by solar energy they will be able to interact with the art and view the full wonder of the artist’s Northern Lights.  

 

 

These small sunflower shaped lights are from the Little Sun project by Olafur Eliasson, the project supports communities without electricity, an aspect of life many people in the modern world take for granted.

 

We managed to speak to Katrin before the opening to ask what it feels like to be part of such an inspiring and heart-warming project, here is what she told us:

 

“Both aspects of the Little Sun Foundation  are very important. The core of this project is to help children by building a new school, education plays a big role especially since I became a mother.  
And also, give them access to renewable clean energy meanings, which is a vital topic, as I am very very  concerned with today's planet state and to offer means for cleaner energies.
I hope The Solar Art Panel exhibition will contribute to bring awareness to people about our Mother Earth's health and how important it is to bring new solutions for clean & sustainable energy use.”

 

The exhibition runs from 11th – 14th July 2017, the auction will take place after this, to find out more about the project, collaborators, contributions and more have a look at the links below:
