James Turrell

The works of this American artist are to be experienced rather than recounted, because they involve one’s sense of touch and perception of one’s body in relation to its surroundings.

Anyone who visits one of the artist’s immersive installations finds themselves in a semi- mystical or surreal state. Bathing in coloured light of an extreme density, one finds oneself immersed in colour, a space full of light that progressively imposes its mood, then its mass and its compactness, and finally its "tactility".

First lost, then calm and meditative, one starts to float in a vibrating chromatic space that changes slowly... An unforgettable experience.
