vincent leroy's grand palais mirror proposal makes you lose your mark

the ‘pebble’, conceived by vincent leroy, occupies a space with an incredible aesthetic experience. this gigantic elliptical mirror floats with utmost grace, softness and voluptuousness, like this example inside the ‘grand palais’ in paris.

the installation forms a sensory experience rather than a visual one. with the mirrored effect, the ground and horizon move slowly until they disappear, making you lose your mark. french artist vincent leroy slows down time and displays his magical mechanism, using the same technology as his boreal halo: inflatable with steel cables in slow rotation.

leroy proposes a new monumental effect without a connection to the ground. these exhibitions plunge visitors into the universe of the artist, a reflection on our relationship with speed and the distance with reality — essential in today’s world. a search for the natural rhythm of its own internal harmony.

the french artist creates surprising deformations in a soft, steady and continuous flow. reality becomes as light as a breath — a visual and sensorial caress. leroy’s work navigates between poetry, technology and freedom of spirit. he savors slow revolutions, taking his time, breaking down each gesture. his installations are not only visual but experiential – engaging and connecting mind, body and soul.

like in cloth design, the constraint of the material structures the geometry of the volume

  • Sorry, but this seems too similar to Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate.
