City Hall courtyard

Hôtel de Ville, Lyon 1

The Town Hall was built in 1646. Destroyed by fire in 1674, it was rebuilt during the early 18th century by Jules Hardouin-Mansart, the architect of the palace of Versailles. Damaged in 1793 after the French Revolution, it was restored in the 19th century. The equestrian statue of 1827 representing Henry IV still adorns its facade.

From the infinitely small to the infinitely large, from material to immaterial, from research to pure sensitivity, the artist and the scientist take us across space-time, the better to understand environnemental issues. The installation reveals a monumental chandelier made from lame and luminous fabric, standing in the center of the courtyard, magnified by the mirror on the ground. By mobilizing imagination, amazement and surprise, the installation reveals in an artistic way recent innovations and knowledge related to light.
