Whatever you’ve been visiting in Centre Pompidou, don’t leave without entering Collection Espace 315, in the South part of the Museum, to discover an installation by Mexican artist Damian Ortega.
The whole room is filled with light curtains made of translcucent circles in vivid primary colors.
People can go along the path between each row of hanging colored discs , in this light and gay environment.
In the middle of the white back wall, there is a tiny hole, and one can go behind the wall.
and like this little boy, you can look at the room through the hole. And what do you see?
Through the spy glass, you see an eye looking at you, an eye made of all the colored discs which seemed disposed at random.
That’s why the installation is called Champ de Vision (field of vision). It’s fun, it’s bright. And though it’s number four, it is certainly not my last choice.
