During my last stay in Bretagne I went to LiFE, an ancient dutch submarine basement reconverted in a contemporary art space. The architecture offers interesting perspectives with repetitive patterns. Walls reflecting in the water of the garden on the rooftop are like an infinite corridor to the sky.

I was lucky enough to spend some time in the installation of Jeppe Hein, “DISTANCE”. Like graphically and sculpturally composed roller-coasters with a series of white balls circluating on them, the installation plays with perception of space and time. The structure must have been through a long process of trial and error, the physics behind each xof part of the circuit enabling the balls to follow their path without any malfunction.

Bends, turns, curves, uphill/downhill slope, loops. A ball going through obstacles, following its trajectory, from start to end. Enjoy the walk.
