LE BON MARCHÉ, PARIS, FRANCE
17.01.2019 - 17.02.2019
The prestigious warehouse Le Bon Marché challenged Joana Vasconcelos to create an installation for its space at Rive Gauche. Branco Luz is the title of the exhibition where Joana Vasconcelos presents Simone, a new work of the series Valquíria, designed specially for the iconic scaletors of Le Bon Marché.
Composed by different white tones, with silver accents and colored lights, Simone integrates several craft techniques in its textile body 30 meters long that wraps the stairs and extends through the atrium of the store. A second body occupies the windows, inviting passers-by to enter. Her name, Simone, pays tribute to two French personalities who marked the story - Simone de Beauvoir and Simone Weil, both warriors of their causes.
