Arles. I boomed
Double news for Lee Ufan, who has lived through time in Earls, an artist with a very specific relationship to space and light. Late Antiquity’s Arles necropolis is well worth a stroll in Elliscamps, where the Korean artist composed Requiem, the setting of 13 works (as a tribute to Boltansky or as a green tear on a stained-glass window…) that magically resonate with this city of the dead. We must continue the journey with Le Ufán Arles, the foundation which opened on 15 April in the center of the Vernon Hotel, a 17th-century building under the high patronage of Antonin-le-Peux, whose sculpted head was discovered. Works. Designed with the help of architect Tadao Ando and designer Constance Gisset, Li Ufan Arles shows all aspects of his work through sculptures, installations and drawings. Moving variation over time.
