The Fondation Bullukian is showcasing two installations:

1- Polyfolies

Meriem Benkirane’s installation is composed of large, thin petals of doctored plexiglass which cast shadows and moving reflections. This artwork takes the visitor into the very heart of matter.

Artist: Meriem Benkirane
Production: Confluence Institute & Fondation Bullukian

Technical support: la communauté lumière iGuzzini

2- Frontier

Light waves and sound vibrations disturb the calm of the untouched, reflective surface of a pond. The changing scenario plays on transforming reality to offer a unique representation with each loop. Depending on ambient sounds and submerged objects, the work becomes an integral part of the site and creates a dialogue with the public and its environment. Through a physical and graphic narrative, it plays on the notion of a frontier between water and earth. This is an immersive audiovisual installation where light, water, waves and… the public answer each other's echoes on an acoustic and visual journey.
