Fondation Bullukian

Fondation Bullukian, Lyon 2

Created thirty years ago, the Fondation Léa et Napoléon Bullukian is officially recognised as a public-benefit organisation. From the very beginning, it has followed its founder's wishes and focused on three key goals: medical research, especially into cancer; culture, and more specifically assistance for young artists; and support for Armenian welfare initiatives.

Dancers perform, alone or in groups, enclosed in transparent boxes. Their movements, captured by each box using different systems, generate video images, light and sound that reflect their imaginary world.

These boxes symbolise small worlds with different borders, whose inhabitants are locked up, echoing the lockdowns we have just experienced and the notion of frontiers, which both distances us from and connects us to the world, with which we collectively share this experience.

MicaPenrose is a project that intimately links art and science, with scientific rigour and aesthetic refinement. It represents a quasicrystal with tiles made of a periodic crystal called mica, the mineral that sparkles in sand and pebbles.

The colours, which echo the palette of soap bubbles, are created by the optical properties of mica and change as you move around the work. When viewed from the side, the natural colour of the mineral appears.
