The second major exhibition at Casa Daros focuses on one of the most important aspects of Julio Le Parc’s work—his occupation with changing light. In this stunning show, the single works of art, mostly dating from the 1960s, unite to form one great symphony of moving light.

Along with his fellow members of the Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel (GRAV), in the 1960s Le Parc broke radically with artistic convention, rejecting static images in favor of a dynamism that placed works of art in a constant state of flux, eliminating the possibility of fixed viewpoints. The animated play of light in his lumino-kinetic pieces transforms space, continually dissolving and recreating it and making the viewer an integral part of a Gesamtkunstwerk.

Cheerfully and with a light hand, Le Parc transports us to a kaleidoscopic universe of flickering, shimmering, dancing, leaping, and swaying light, a realm of overwhelming elegance and beauty that exerts a hypnotic fascination.
