Les amours en cage


Thursday 6 and Sunday 9 December from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. 

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

On show until December 31 


Les amours en cage is a pathway inspired by the North winds meeting the South winds. Suspended overhead for a kilometre along the Rue de la République, 250 physalis twinkle and change shades in the wind, as if stirred by an invisible breeze. Whilst in the South, these cocoon-shaped plants feature orange lights, those in the North, more mature, have a blueish hue. In the Rue Président Carnot, the opposing winds meet and blue and orange combine to create a purple light. Those that are closed or half-open shine bright, whilst the open physalis reveal their illuminated fruit.
