This is the new public work by Vincent Leroy, best known for his nature-inspired abstract sculptures, which is entitled The Blue Floating Lines. After a geodesic structure in Tokyo that reflected the sky, and a rotating pixelated version of the sun at the Kumming mall in China, Leroy is welcomed by the city of Wuhan, China, where his newest work is currently installed.
Curated by Debut Studio, the installation features three towering metal poles with rotating abstract forms. “The atmosphere is fluid, soft and endless. No beginning, no end, just a continuous flow,” said the artist in a statement. “ It’s a work from the slowness, a abnormally slowness. This motion decomposition explains and intrigues at the same time. The slowness creates another dimension. I try to lead the spectator into this state of mind.”
Leroy wants to stimulate passersby to stop their tracks and engage in a moment of contemplation through the poetic piece. Exploring the dynamic between technology and the freedom of the spirit, the artist explained that the work is “a reflection on our relationship with the speed and distance of reality and a search for the natural rhythm of its own internal harmony‘…so essential in today’s world.”
