La Tourette, Modulations
During his stay in the Dominican Monastery of La Tourette – the last major work of French architect Le Corbusier - photographer George Dupin disclosed a set of unseen snapshots, the results of a personal tour of the monastery. George Dupin is a follower of Lucien Hervé (a photographer in close contact with Le Corbusier) and offers a vision of the convent that unveils overviews and original details (furniture, atrium, hallways…).
Also for this occasion, the works of Alan Charlton, an artist invited to La Tourette, are exhibited in the convent during Lyon’s Biennale of Contemporary Art taking place from September 10th to November 18th 2011.
A silent dialogue emerges between the architect’s work and the artist’s.
