Newly created, the Place Louis Pradel connects the city center, the Hôtel de Ville and the Place de Terreaux with the Rhône’s banks. Built on the Presqu’Île during the work of the metro, the square is right next to the slopes of the Croix-Rousse.

Welcome to the Festival! Nicolas Paolozzi's tall, sleek totems of light are beacons to help you find your way around the city. Once again this year, the five Indian-style totems will help you get your bearings as well as being perfect places for meeting up with friends before setting off to enjoy the Festival.

Abyss

Friday 7 and Saturday 8 December from 8 p.m. to midnight


Drawing inspiration from the principle of bioluminescence (generating light in complete darkness as some sea creatures are able to do), arcs of light form the dorsal fin of a huge mythical creature on Place Louis Pradel, which looks to have escaped from a Jules Verne novel. Continuing his inclination for interactive projects, Nicolas Paolozzi invites audiences to join together under his work of art. This fun and reflective installation responds to requests, moving over and over again according to random sequences triggered by spectators.
