Felice Varini has taken on Le Corbusier’s architecture at MAMO, the art centre created by Ora Ito on the roof terrace of Cité Radieuse in Marseille, and the result is spectacular!
Known for re-defining architectural spaces with his sharp eye and optical illusions, the French-Swiss artist has spanned the whole terrace with three different installation pieces.
Varini takes one initial view point, carefully chosen, usually at eye level and located at a key passage way in the space. Intended as a starting point, the viewer is invited to enter the painting and the space from here, working their own way around, ultimately creating the experience of an infinite number of different shapes within the first shape! Mesmerising or what?!
