Boreal Halo…

…The Muzeul National de Arta Contemporana, located in Bucharest, Romania, is the temporary home of the Boreal Halo by French artist Vincent Leroy. Inside the Grand Palace, the Boreal Halo casts a mesmerizing, hypnotic trance over the room. The mass of the object creates an interesting contrast to the stark solidity of the marble floors, striking a tense balance that gives the structure a sense of lightness.


The halo makes visitors aware of the space they occupy…


the installation levitates above the marble floor…


the ring is in contrast with the fine appointments of the museum room, but remains harmonious in the space…

…as the halo moves, visitors will find themselves inside its space. via

…as the hypnotic halo rotates, visitors will find themselves inside and then outside its space.  Lovely…
