Éphémères (2017)

Light features

Whatever happened? The inner courtyard of City Hall has been overrun by vegetation, like the sacred Inca sites or the temple of Angkor Wat.  Nature has reclaimed the spot with wickerwork creepers pulsating with light staking their claim to the building. The walls and fountain are covered in glowing ivy and bindweed. All around flutter short-lived mayflies; they seem to fly as high as the dome of the Opera, but it’s just an illusion. Let yourself be captivated by this poetic installation in the courtyard of City Hall, exceptionally open to the public during the Festival of Lights
