Vincent Leroy imagines a new proposal installation playing with the architecture of the Gion district in Kyoto in Japan. Like a suspended magnifying glass curtain, Slow Lens turns indefatigably. It seems light and fluid, almost volatile. It breaks down the architecture by invoking a new assembly. The vision seems to become disturbed and unreal. Like a loop, repetition becomes multiple and infinite. A focus on detail becomes captivating.
Once again it is a subtle mix of low technology and poetry that detaches us from the real world with the VL’s work. Slow Lens acts as a filter between reality and us. This new VL experience creates a skillful assembly between an effect and an environment.
An installation produces dreams and contemplation. Everything seems to plunge us into the oneiric universe. Blurry becomes an enigmatic and intriguing game. At night, the splinters of light draw our gaze, we are more contemplative. The details take on importance. Lens then seems even freer, fluid detached from the real world and from all constraints.
An original quadraphonic sound design composition is created for the installation by Jérôme Echenoz of Adorable Studio. Composed mainly of sounds found in the street in Japan is synchronized with the movement of the piece. The result is a perfect combination of space, movement sound, offering a very unique experience to the public. This installation will be visible in 2020 to the Contemporary Art Museum Erarta in the Saint-Petersburg, Russia.
