vincent leroy immerses a floating black nebula into new wuhan k11 art space

k11 inaugurates the opening of its new chi k11 art space in the city of wuhan with a major exhibition dedicated to french artist vincent leroy. this exhibition pulls visitors into the artist’s kinetic and poetic universe by bringing together some of his most notable works as well as new creations. among them, the immersive installation nebula is particularly intriguing.

in a pristine white space, vincent leroy inserts 15 tetrapods levitating above the ground. despite their imposing size, these strange celestial bodies, made up of a super light inflatable structure, seem floating weightless and form a fascinating kinetic nebula. as often with vincent leroy’s installations, nebula is the opportunity to test a visual experience as well as an emotional and bodily one.

upon entering the installation, the public wanders among the tetrapods which, suspended from various mechanisms, literally envelop them. in a slow and continuous movement, the floating elements move and evolve around the visitors. they sometimes slightly brush, meet, merge or, on the contrary, move away in a cosmic and poetic ballet.
