Installation

Papillon de nuit. A moth. Our installation is inspired by these small animals,whose instincts, perception of space and sense of orientation are strongly related to the light.
Light guides them through their life to death.

An out of the ordinary night, in a corner of the city.
Strolling through the night, the visitor is looking for a little glow out of the darkness.
The moths are here. Whirling around to find the moon.
Animals, giving in to temptation, come to the edge of the light and come back from it,
sometimes.

Trust, confusion, attraction, temptation, experience.
Passages from obscurity to light, from one reality to another.
