Purple Rain at Nuit Blanche
The 10th Nuit Blanche art festival takes place this week in Paris, featuring an installation by artist Pierre Ardouvin. Titled Purple Rain, the artwork occupies a courtyard in the Hôtel d’Albret, and showers visitors in mauve-coloured rain. They are invited to walk through it with an umbrella while listening to a specially selected soundtrack.
The inclusion of this piece in the festival highlights an emerging trend for immersive initiatives where visitors experience colour by being wholly surrounded by it.
