Light Sculpture Installation
The Grand Palais – The Biennale des Antiquaires
TIMELESS MOTION (in Life and Light) | Paris, France
For the Biennale des Antiquaires
at the Grand Palais
, Amorós was invited to create a unique, immersive environment in which the relationship between the objects, the light, and the site offers new ways to experience jewelry pieces. With nature and architecture as shared sources of inspiration and a starting point, Amorós conceived an art installation, which serves as a physical space showcasing the jewelry. A curvaceous structure, built by hand of translucent silkscreened polycarbonate and illuminated by a custom programmed LED light sequence, it brings nature indoors and envelops visitors within a chapel like space.

Programmed LED light sequence, brings nature indoors and envelops visitors within a chapel like space. The atmospheric, ephemeral quality of the setting is further reinforced with a slow movement of lights. Viewing jewels in this environment thus aims to transcend a purely aesthetic experience and become a meditation on the theme of nature and life.
