Alice, a graduate from the Lyon School of Fine Art, initially worked as a theatre stage designer before turning her hand to the creation of lights. As for Pierre, he describes himself as a crazy handyman, both a technician and artist in street theatre companies. Together, they create intimate installations that bring secret places to light. They also enjoy involving and surprising the public – there is always a touch of mystery about their installations.
Can you hear the confined heart beating when you enter the Gadagne Museum? Open the door of the cage in the middle of the courtyard and set it free. And at the same time, marvel at the birds flying away, freed from the lamps that were keeping them imprisoned.
