From Tuesday to Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm. Closed Monday and Sunday.
This is the biggest presentation of Dan Flavin's work in Paris since 2006! The David Zwirner gallery proposes to (re)discover the artist through key works created from "Diagonal of Personal Ecstasy", in 1963, to the 80's. At that time, Flavin's work crystallizes around pieces made with fluorescent tubes. Fascinated by the transformations allowed by the work, he worked on variations and sequences. Different assembling of the tubes according to the installations, play with the colours that follow one another and envelop the spectator... The artist invests the creation in situ and works on the space at his disposal and how it can be modified thanks to his works. Together, the works in the exhibition embody what Flavin described as his goal of producing "a sequence of implicit lights". A reference to the traditions of painting and sculpture, a tribute to abstraction, his acts of light redefine space and the viewer's perception.
