Place de la Bourse

Place de la Bourse, Lyon 2

Place de la Bourse lies between the rue de la République and the rue de la Bourse. Laid out by Alexandre Chemetoff, it features a small fountain, a garden and the main entrance of the Chamber of Trade and Industry.  The Palais de la Bourse dates back to the middle of the 18th century and has been a listed building since 1994.

In 2012, Spanish artist Agatha Ruiz de la Prada chose this square for a touching testimonial to the city she loves: a brightly coloured floating heart, her “Corazon”.

During the 2013 Festival of Light, the place de la Bourse hosted another fashion icon, Chantal Thomass. The famous haute couture designer pretended to be a florist in a surreal flower shop filled with roses and hydrangeas in “Sérénade”.

Vortex: a physical phenomenon which creates a swirling mass of liquids and particles. A source of energy, flux and upheaval, it compels us to confront our human condition at the mercy of terrestrial and cosmic forces. Both natural and supernatural, the vortex is also the gateway to other universes.  The brainchild of LightLab Creative with a soundtrack by YO, this installation recounts a universal inclusive story. The three rings of light move in harmony through space but then fall out of sync - while continuing to belong to a whole.
