With his ‘light expeditions’, created on site, Yann Kersalé transcends the limits of the visible by eliminating the notion of time-space; if our present-day world is articulated around two concepts : speed and images, isn’t it to abolish the distances that separate the event from its duration ? The illumination of monuments, cities or landscapes, using modern technology: projectors, monitors, videos, computer data, confers upon these structures a cosmic dimension. Yann Kersalé recomposes a new era to redefine its meaning. His installations, situated somewhere between fiction and reality, seem to challenge the universe by recreating a visual illusion.
