vincent leroy's immersive installation is a spatial experience with floating structures

inspired by a wave breaker that vincent leroy had seen in japan, the french artist imagines his latest installation entitled ‘nebula’. this time, the wave breaker is not in concrete but in a very light inflatable structure. the big volume moves slowly towards you in this totally immersive scheme.

parisian based vincent leroy‘s ‘nebula’ consists of twelve modules with no connection to the ground, seeming to be in levitation. the installation floats with utmost grace, softness and voluptuousness, and takes us into a spatial experience. the black mirror texture produces a distorted reflection. nevertheless, you can see across the module through a transparent section in the middle.

one universe between the black latex, the sea bottom and the space

 

 

once more, vincent leroy’s installation manages to lose your mark. the artist’s diffused work savors slow revolutions and  enjoys slowing down the velocity with mechanism which seems magic. he likes to take his time, breaking down each gesture that counts in his eyes. leroy’s installations are not only visual but experiential — engaging and connecting mind, body and soul. these exhibitions will plunge the visitors into the universe of the artist, a reflection on our relationship with the speed, the distance with the reality — so essential in today’s world.

a search for the natural rhythm of its own internal harmony is conceived. this installation is performed with a special sound track by french sound designer jérôme echenoz. it is broadcasted from four different directions, moving at the same speed around and within the scheme.
