Conceptual artist, Daniel Buren has collaborated on a colourful project with Parisian based building, Fondation Louis Vuitton. Covering the Frank Gehry-designed space, the installation entitled 'Observatory of Light' dresses the building in Buren's signature coloured filters and glass 'sails', 3,600 pieces of glass to be exact. Bernard Arnault, the president of Fondation Louis Vuitton comments of the newly designed building “Daniel Buren has designed a grandiose project, pertinent and enchanting, the result of real dialogue with Frank Gehry and his building. His work responds magnificently to the architecture, in line with his approach, going back to the 1970s, that sees a coming together of colors, transparency and light.”
To commemorate the collaboration, a bound to be colourful catalogue designed by Buren himself will showcase thematically linked body of works of colour, transparency, projection and light. The pictorial guide will present a timeline from the 70's era to modern day. 'Observatory of Light' will begin on 11th May, to learn more information about it click here.
