Nuit des Musées - Lausanne (CH)/ Rolex Learning Center - Ecole Polytechnique Lausanne | 24.09.2011

Installation made of forty-five light cocoons spread out under the vault of the Rolex Learning Center during the Night of the Museums 2011 in Lausanne (Switzerland). Clumped, gathered tight as a shoal of fish, the cocoons form a compact entity that evokes an emerging life. Its bluish light glows around it with an icy halo. Within the installation, the scattered tones of musical boxes can be heard, addressing each other, as a lullaby which would accompany the sleep of the cocoons.
45 éléments approx. 150 cm long/ White lycra blanc tightened on metallic structures, white fluorescent lights with blue filters.
