MATTHIAS CONTZEN – UNIVERSE
LOO & LOU GALLERY – GEORGE V
june 13 – september 4, 2015

The Loo & Lou Gallery reveals « For You », a remarkable and unreleased piece of art work, created in collaboration with Philippine Leroy – Beaulieu. The mandala, 4 meters in diameter, is displayed as a circle of light made of 4000 marble cylinders which recreates its rays.  Reflecting from the ground through a lacquer mirror, the spectator is enveloped in an image of infinity, in a room with sound installation.

« For you » finds itself at the essence of Matthias Contzen’s work at the end of the 00’s, together with the piece « Planets ». Its 4000 cylinders were collected during the past five years, extracted from the artist’s previous art works.  The installation witnesses the perpetual balance of a complementary universe.
