ELYSÉE PALACE, Paris, FRANCE
In this site specific work, the Murat staircase becomes the subject of a journey, of a displacement during which the ascent and descent are accompanied by a particular energy produced visually by passages between chosen chromatics. Odyssey seems to unfold under our feet. To make the fluidity circulate around and within this space creates a luminous transparency of the place. The wavelengths of light as well as the luminous variation, raw materials of my works, are materialized by the dyed colours of the wool. This staircase in three flights joined by a median landing becomes an expanding space, the carpet-work Odyssey offers sensorial thresholds.
