This glowing halo installation entitled “Renaissance(s)” was assembled in an 18th-century chapel in Versailles by architecture and art studio Moger. It is part of a wider exhibition called “Architecture Passions”, which celebrates the 40th anniversary of multidisciplinary architecture firm Wilmotte & Associés.

Renaissance(s) allows new perspectives, providing a new view of the geometry of space. Space is a living material. This volume is apprehended by each differently. The installation plays with the spatial dimension of the architecture of the place.

The piece consists of a large circular mirror, set into the floor of the church, and 400 golden elastic lines, strung between the floor and the balcony, creating the illusion of light bursting from the floor.
