Eric Michel / Fleur de béton

Fleur de béton is a work between materiality and immateriality.


Eric Michel is a plastic artist born in 1962, whose work around light essentially falls within the tradition of Yves Klein, James Turrell and Dan Flavin and a quest for immateriality.

To the rawness of cement, Fleur de béton associates the fragility and evanescence of fluorescent light, playing on the line that separates the material from the immaterial.
