Cour des Moirages

Cour des Moirages, Lyon 1

The "moireing" of silk clothes consists of adding effects with a primer. The weavers came to the "cours des Moirages" to treat the silk. The entrance of this courtyard is the place Croix-Paquet. You have to go through a porch and a first courtyard. A corridor then gives access to the "cours des Moirages", whose grandiose columned porch is overlooking the "petite rue des Feuillants". It is also possible to see the old arches of the cloister of the 17th century (old Feuillants' monastery).

200 nautical lamps are aligned at regular intervals in perfect symmetry on either side of a minimalist structure. This open structure gives the viewer a deep and fascinating insight into the heart of the installation. Musical notes are linked to each lamp, generating a strange score of light and sound based on a musical composition by Cédric Beron. The perspective effect gives the installation a hypnotising depth, no matter where the spectator looks at it from. The junction of the lines and dots of light is disrupted by the mist creating chaos in this confined space.
