Les Rêveries Lumineuses de Léonard (2019)

Les Rêveries Lumineuses de Léonard (2019)

The idea of this project is to create an optical cabinet of curiosities based on the work of Leonardo da Vinci to mark the 500th anniversary of his death. The work of the brilliant engineer, whether in the fields of art, science, technology or philosophy, has spurred the creation of a pathway featuring seven installations. Inspired by the Italian's work on shadow and light, this is an invitation to explore light machines and mechanical-optic installations. These fragments of an illuminated discourse shape a walk that is poignant, visual and acoustic. This participative project is a poetic interlude, shedding new light on the way in which Leonardo da Vinci's work can provide the impetus for a modern-day, collective artistic gesture.
