vincent leroy reflects on our relationship with speed, distance and reality with ‘sunrise’, a slowly-rotating, glowing installation made of overlapping transparent surfaces. creating an enigmatic and fascinating blur, the paris-based artist reinterpreted the colors of the sun by layering the surfaces in an infinite amount of orange gradients.

not only visual but also experiential, vincent leroy’s sunrise engages visitors in a game of transparency where the material almost disappears and the installation seems to be made out of light. a soundtrack composed by french sound designer jérôme echenoz follows the speed rhythm of the piece and is broadcasted from four different directions.
