recently renovated parisian art space palais de tokyo has given french artist julien salaud their alice guy hall to fill with his luminescent installation ‘grotte stellaire’ for the triennale of contemporary art on show until august 6th. in a new twist to the celebrated ceiling frescos by the renaissance masters
or primitive cave drawings discovered on the walls of recessed natural spaces in europe, salaud has developed a painstakingly precise, three-dimensional
mural upon the uppermost area of the expansive, darkened space. with the help of a small team, the artist and trained anthropologist has manipulated white string, nailing the material to the ceiling in the shapes of deer which seem to comprise a celestial body when illuminated with an ultraviolet lighting system. the luminescent string paintings depicts a group of deer in various states of motion, decorating the curved edge in which the ceiling meets
the wall in what seems to be something from a planetarium, cave painting or cathedral picturing a surrealistic depiction of heavenly beastly bodies.
