Paravent

Lambert & Fils First Foray into Sculptural Work

April 2021
Lambert & Fils presents Paravent at Fictions, an immersive virtual experience presented by Canadian Creators Collective and curated by Nicolas Bellavance-Lecompte. Taking part as both organizers and participants of the CCC, Lambert & Fils presents Paravant; their first foray into sculptural works.
Paravent is a large-scale light installation that invites the viewer’s gaze to shape the work according to the image they perceive. Born from an exploration session around ceramic extrusions, the project poses a fundamental question: is light a space in itself? This desire to materialize light has led us to design a human-sized screen, part shield and part cliff, built from skillfully stacked extrusions.
The shapes created by the tubes and the light they diffuse change as viewers move around the screen and catch any volume, texture or pattern their gaze is drawn to. Thus viewers become the creators of the work, playing with their own perceptions, spotting mirages, summoning memories, and unlocking the poetic potential of this uncommon Paravent.
