The art installation « Cocon » was shown during the European Heritage Days 2020, in Fort Saint Laurent, a 1830’s building overlooking river Rhône in Lyon.

An immersive and cocoon space, where flying paintings on coton and silk softly touch the skin.
Opened just after the first lockdown in France, the event took on a meaning of liberation.
In an ambient fragrance of cinnamon, a dozen of paintings on natural fabrics and mere fabric panels were intrically displayed and moved by wind from a fan. The whole art piece gave the tactile feeling of entering a cloud in the sky.
The entire work was inspired by the natural setting around and the family story of the artist, rooted in this hill and river.
