France: "The Cathedral d 'Images"?

Jump to last reply

A recent News from France, an epistle of the French Embassy in the U.S. talks about the "La Cathedral d'Images" in southern France:

"La Cathedral d 'Images offers a unique way to experience the life and work of famed artists by projecting audio-visual installations onto the walls of a former quarry in the South of France. this spring, Picasso will be featured in an exhibit titled "Picasso," which combines light, sound and vibrant larger-than-life Picasso reproductions projected onto the bauxite and limestone walls."

"a unique venue - the jagged uneven rock walls ensure that the painting is never centered or flat and often extends outside of the wall onto the ceilings, floors and ridges of the quarry. As the viewer walks around the quarry, looking at the paintings from different angles, the images appear to vanish or cross-fade, making the entire viewing experience almost three-dimensional"

"La Cathedral was discovered by Albert Piecy in the late 1970s and he used the venue to show his research on the art of photography."

Picasso show runs thru Jan 3, 2010.
