Shine a Light

Nathalie Talec

This luminous and fantastical work welcomes visitors to the Foundation.

A unique creation resulting from the combination of several skills, Shine a Light is a monumental light sculpture inspired by ancient models of vases, objects that are both functional, ornamental and composite. Zoomorphic vases, consisting of a cylindrical basin and an end shaped like an animal or human head, real or fantastic, adorn this chandelier.

These precious objects, which bore witness to the taste of the dignitaries of antiquity for the pomp and luxury of dishes, had both a utilitarian and decorative function. The light sculpture is thus composed of an accumulation of forms and figures using both ceramic (present in the artist’s work for several years) and glass, a new material in the artist’s work.
