Tête d'Or Park, Lyon 6
Ricochets (2021)

As you wander along the shore of the lake in the Parc de la Tête d'Or, the usually calm waters are suddenly disturbed by light waves, majestic lines of ricochets that form on its surface. These powerful waves ripple across the water, almost reaching you as they rush to the shore.

Could they be particles fallen from the sky, like drops that make the lake glow, or rather underwater creatures that are also part of this strange phenomenon?

The luminous vibrations unfold with magnitude, rising to the top of the tall trees on the opposite shore, letting the rich and imposing nature of the park emerge from the darkness.


Artistic intent

This is the first time the northern part of the Parc de la Tête d’Or lake has been featured: the aim was to juxtapose the horizontal surface of the water with the vertical backdrop of the tall trees on the other side of the lake.
