The museum presents in the courtyard an original installation by Nathalie Junod Ponsard, which acts both on its facades and on the ephemeral forest installed this season in its center by the Balto workshop. The space of the main facade becomes an inseparable course of time and expands under the flow of colored lights which move, deform and juxtapose. Like a frontal and vertical wandering, these flows are constantly fluctuating. They slide to reach other wavelengths, while at their intersection a lighter area marks the outcrop of white on the stone. The facade design fluctuates under a luminosity which absorbs the wall and sets the whole courtyard ablaze.
Changing in its chromaticity and intensity, indecisive in its contours, it suggests a “landscape” of hypnotic luminous blurs. We know that the projection of certain colored lights on the forest sends a vibratory message to the plants, creating an environment likely to modify their development.
Nathalie Junod Ponsard is a graduate of the Nantes School of Fine Arts and of the National School of Decorative Arts where she teaches. She also teaches at Ensadlab. Since the end of the 1980s, his installations or immersive light works have been presented throughout the world. She has been awarded several commissions for permanent works in Paris.
