Festival of lights 2016 – Favourites with JC Keller
JC Keller produced this year, in partnership with the Caisse d'Epargne, a facility for the Festival of lights in Lyon.
The work, by artist Franck Pelletier of the collective the lighters, is an inflatable light heart that gives the pulse of the city and her lovers. Gigantic, unmistakable and exciting, heart invites you to come and feel and reveal your love light and sound. When you put your hands on a console, the heart captures your heart rhythms combined. It flashes in unison by letting you vibrate to the sound of your love song
The inflatable heart was manufactured by JC Keller in his workshop in Paris. The structure is beyond the 6 meters high which LED bulbs are installed so that the heart can blush in the night.
Frederic Keller, Director of the specific company: "we are proud to be a producer of a project of this size. Initially we just needed to manufacture the inflatable heart, but the project we enjoyed so much that we wanted to go further. Franck Pelletier is also a renowned artist with which we have already worked several times. And we thank the Caisse d'Epargne to support us in this beautiful story. »
The favorite project will be installed in front of the famous theatre of the Célestins and will be visible to the Lyon Festival of lights from 8 to 10 December 2016.
Finally, the project was selected for the trophy of lights held by France 3 in partnership with the city of Lyon. It will be possible to vote for shots of hearts at this address from December 8: www.fetedeslumieres.lyon.fr/fr/installation/coups-de-coeur
