LUMIERE LONDON 2018
A beautiful bird, illuminated against the night sky
That night in Berkeley Square there was magic abroad in the air… French artist Cédric Le Borgne’s ethereal and illuminated sculpture Was That a Dream? contemplated the city, exploring it and caressing it. Sitting on a tree, the serene sculpture made of light invited us to glance up and around, offering the possibility of connection between the sky and the ground, between dream and reality.
Le Borgne (France) invites us to view daily life in a fresh way, to rise up, to dream. By abolishing barriers, his work exploring spaces is sensitive and his poetry subtly interacts with each place it comments on. From sculptures made of chicken wire to photo or video, from perennial installations to spontaneous performance, from street-art to web-art, his work is free of formal constraints.
