Artwork n°5 : Projection

Artist : Vincent Lamouroux




This French artist shakes up our perceptions of the environment by reinventing architectural and sculptural usages. For Les Extatiques, Vincent Lamouroux highlights the artificial nature of urban landscapes by covering a group of plane trees on the Esplanade of Paris La Défense with a white veil of slaked lime. Projection is a visual, physical, and psychological experience that freezes the landscape in suspended time with this spectacular, iconoclastic act.
