‘‘ The power of the monumental works of Vasarely prompted us to work outside, modestly. I love the building – it's well-structured and resonates with fluid shapes.
Winner of the Voies Off prize in 2004, the Prestige BMW prize in 2008, in 2012 he exhibited his images at FIAC and the Rencontres d'Arles. His aesthetic choices take us into a universe that is familiar, one we know, and yet one that is odd and strange.www.oliviermetzger.com
AIX EN PROVENCE
Opened in 1976, the Vasarely Foundation offers a fascinating dive into the world of optical art against the backdrop of a lumino kinetic building imagined by Victor Vasarely. The interactive exhibition comprises 44 monumental architectural ensembles created using sixteen hexagonal modules, intertwined to form giant building blocks. A complete refurbishment project kicked off in 2013, but the Foundation will remain open during the work.Know more
