Nuit Blanche 2018
The luminous artwork realizes a form of weightlessness of the site. The space of the facade becomes inseparable from time, it becomes course. Malleable and floating the colored lights (wavelengths), pure and saturated, spread and juxtapose themselves ; the facade expands. Like a frontal and vertical wandering, luminous fluxes move, propagate, stop, disappear, return, always present but fluctuating. They slide to reach other recreated wavelengths, at their intersection a lighter zone marks the outcrop of white on the surface of the stone.
The design of the facade seems to fluctuate. Absorbing the wall, the light fires the site, projects oneself on the wall-facade. The fluidity of light is making transparency of the place. And as if it was elastic this brightness changes chromatics, they are fading. Provoking a hypnotic phenomenon, a "landscape" of rhythmic light blur is revealed by chromatic bands of equal value that dilute and reappear.
Field of presence - in reference to the thought of Merleau-Ponty. The projection of certain colored lights on the plants creates a vibratory message for their organism, the specific and changing atmosphere of the work creates an environment that can modify the development of the 'forest' (located in the courtyard), a way to question the living.
