Photo of the Week – November 21, 2014
Here is a photograph that was taken during the French artist Daniel Buren’s installation Excentrique(s) in 2012. The show was part of the series Monumenta, for which a contemporary artist is invited to create a piece inside Le Grand Palais each year. Buren installed a canopy of 377 multi-colored circular shapes, accompanied by mirrors which reflected the colored light, under which visitors could explore. The artist designed the installation over the course of two years, and the on site implementation took seven days. Light, air and volume are at the source of the work, as is the dichotomy between intimate and public space. Photo by Jean-Pierre Dalbéra  via Flickr
