For the Festival of Lights, the Bullukian Foundation is hosting two new projects: On the courtyard side, a place dedicated to emergence, it is hosting a light installation created by a student from the Confluence Institute school of architecture. We discover large petals of moulded, deformed, multiplied plexiglass that floats and undulate above the visitors. On the garden side, the Encor Studio collective is honoured with an independent project, combining architecture and light. Light waves and sound vibrations disturb the tranquillity of the virgin and reflective surface of an aquatic basin. The evolutionary scenario plays on the distortion of reality to offer, with each new loop, a unique representation.

Travel accounts, collective or more intimate experiences of homelessness, Jan Kopp’s practice is resolutely turned towards the idea of the collective, sharing of experience and transmission, especially with the public. After having experienced on a large scale the construction of a collective work in the shape of a roofed boat with Utopia House, hosted at the Bullukian Foundation in May 2018, Jan Kopp returns for a personal exhibition entitled The Patience of Tapajòs. This work emphasizes the different utopias, personal or collective, architectural or industrial, which inspire the artist since they echo the contemporary issues and challenges that we encounter.

The exhibition La tendresse des pierres by Marion Fayolle, illustrator and comic book author, invites us into a story that is both intimate and in the right distance, of her father’s illness.
