Fête des Lumières (Lyon 2019)
Prairie éphémère – Place Bellecour
5 – 8 december 2019
Around the foot of the statue of Louis XIV, Place Bellecour is transformed into a vast illuminated meadow. Strange flying creatures – the Luminéoles – inhabit a field planted with 500 pampas grasses. These 4-metre tall glowing plants reflect the light, creating a veritable tableau vivant, first a wild meadow then a bizarre ocean. The grasses and birds interact in a colourful dance. No bigger than ants in this oversized natural world, the spectators gaze upwards in fascination.
