Dubaï Festival of Lights 2014
An illuminated, poetic and colorful installation on the terrace which offers a unique vista over the bright city.
The artist Jérôme Toq’R presents a series of installations whose common denominator is their ability to redefine space and draw the visitor’s eye to the terrace to encourage people to meet each other. The different elements of the installation were realised with the help of the patients, the doctors, the workers and visitors. The universe created favours spheres and sinuous lines to evoke nature and blocks of bright colour. Canvas, wood, resin, adhesive tape ad acrylic paint are the components of the main modules of the installation which can be viewed day and night throughout the festival. The backlighting actually offers visitors a new work as night falls. A work full of transparency which is reminiscent of stained glass.
