Cube Sphere Gold - Cyril Lancelin
Cyril Lancelin (born 1975) Sphere Gold Cube, electro-polished stainless steel, 2021
Located near the Saint-Gobain Tower, Cyril Lancelin presents a decomposition of a simple volume, a cube. It is made of a regular assembly of reflecting metallic spheres. The solid is hollowed out by passages and openings. It is the drawing in three dimensions of a partition of full and empty. The artist invites the visitor to an immersion in the material. The sculpture connects the infinitely small and the infinitely large, the human scale and the scale of the city. It is a kinetic experience open to the public space.
A word about the artist
Born in 1975 in Lyon, Cyril Lancelin is an artist passionate about computer graphics. After graduating in architecture in 1999, he began to develop and create 3D visualization and modeling teams in large architectural agencies and in collaboration with artists in Paris and Los Angeles. Little by little, his ideas of imaginary houses and art installations take place and Cyril Lancelin decides to leave his job as an architect to devote himself to his art. Today, he lives and works in Lyon. Through his work, Cyril Lancelin develops a hybrid work composed of sculptures, immersive installations, drawings, virtual experiences and videos that weave links between the physical and the fictional. The notions of repetition and parametric generation are recurring themes in his work. Ephemeral or permanent, digital or real, his large-scale immersive artistic creations open a poetic dialogue between the perception of space and the viewer.
