''... through my works, I have always sought to get spectators to behave differently. I wanted to find ways to fight passivity, dependency and ideological conditioning by helping viewers develop their ability to think, compare, analyze, create and act.''
Artist Julio Le Parc is an emblematic figure in the history of art. Born in 1928 in Argentina, he was a forerunner of Kinetic Art and Op Art, co-founded the Groupe de recherche d’art visuel (G.R.A.V.) and received the International Grand Prize for Painting at the Venice Biennale in 1966. His art offers viewers a multi-sensory experience in light, color, energy and movement. The collaboration between this indefatigable artist and Bernardaud confirms that his work is as current, playful and innovative as ever.
