Les Lustres

Les Lustres (2019)

Five huge (6x6m) old fashioned chandelier lights have fallen from an imaginary ceiling. Their tentacular branches reach out, holding twenty lampshades aloft. They wait patiently for the public to come closer before flickering into life, their pale light gradually gaining in intensity. Now they have a taste of freedom, the lights begin to communicate in unison in a burst of colour. This beguiling installation rejuvenates a rather outmoded household accessory, transforming the square into an outdoor ballroom and delighting visitors with an impromptu silent symphony.
