Light sculpture, 2012
“A video for a circular screen suspended in space, Éclipse II is the last element of the Cosmos series which aims to question the instinctive and mythical understanding which natural manifestations of light induce. Like this artist’s other videos and radiantly coloured constructions, it seeks to explore the process behind vision and the ways in which our gaze is conditioned. It recreates a series of cyclical and progressive rotations as various luminous and hypnotic states progressively unfold, inspired by astrophysical phenomena.After the creation of the material with the sculpture Ovale (2008), the apparent covering of one star by another at a precise instant in Éclipse I (2009), and the explosion of a star in Supernova (2011), Éclipse II helps us experience the play inherent between the relative position of the observer, a source of light and an eclipsing disk. This assertion in space of an interplay and alignment of shadow and light evokes the limits of human perception and events which create links with distant space-times.”
