Place Antonin Poncet

Place Antonin Poncet, Lyon 2

Place Antonin Poncet located between place Bellecour and the Rhône was once home to the Hôpital de la Charité. Built in 1622, it was Lyon’s second biggest hospital after the Hôtel Dieu.  Edouard Herriot had it demolished in 1934. Today, only the belltower remains.

A multitude of luminous traces snake across the floor, vibrating with a slightly bluish glow in the darkness. The overall movement evokes waves.

But as you contemplate this work, perhaps you see some powerful and mysterious energy irrigating the earth, or the fleeting imprint of ghost trains heading for an unknown destination, or strange, yet peaceful creatures drinking in the moonlight?
