LUX

Lucile Cassassolles and Simon Chevalier are based in the south of France, near the Alpes. Since 2016, Simon creates light sculptures and Lucile produces and manages the art pieces under the name LUX.
In contrast to a world saturated with fast, colorful, and loud solicitations to spectators, they choose to present simple, static, black and white art pieces.
The duo creates large-scale, repetitive geometric shapes to build sober and precise graphic sculptures always presented in public spaces on a high stand in order to give them a symbolic function.
Conscious that society and its beliefs are based on temporal recurrences, they draw their inspiration from primitive and brutalist representations of space objects.
Those symbols being invested by all kinds of fantasies, memories and associations of ideas, they give to the sculptures a spirituality, making them comparable to instruments of cult and worship.
We all dream of a calmer, quieter and cleaner future.
As light has and will always be a guide in the history of mankind and well aware of the limitations of technology Lucile and Simon use LEDs and electricity only to promote a new path for our time.
