Temporary Exhibitions 2024-2025 at the Workshop of Lights Paris
THE EGYPT OF THE PHARAOHS - FROM KHUFU TO RAMSES II: From February 9, 2024, to January 5, 2025
Starting from February 9, 2024, the exhibition immerses visitors in the Egypt of the pharaohs. It begins with the discoveries of French scientists from 1798-1801, illustrated by bas-reliefs, paintings, and papyrus. The journey follows the Nile, depicting daily life, the construction of pyramids, and the treasures of the pharaohs. Sculptures of famous rulers like Khafre and Nefertiti coexist with representations of the temples from Luxor to Abu Simbel. The exhibition culminates with the astronomical ceiling of Dendera, inviting continuous exploration of the mysteries of ancient Egypt.
THE ORIENTALISTS - INGRES, DELACROIX, GÉRÔME...: From February 9, 2024, to January 5, 2025
The exhibition on 19th-century Orientalism presents works by Delacroix, Gérôme, Ingres, and others, exploring the exotic and imagined Orient. It starts with Delacroix's travel sketchbooks, full of play of light and shadow, and continues with scenes of oriental life captured by other artists. Visitors discover alleys, markets, palace courtyards, and deserts, accompanied by the sounds, scents, and wild animals of the Orient. The exhibition culminates with Ingres' "La Grande Odalisque," a symbol of idealized Orientalism, before returning to the Parisian salons of the 19th century.
FOREIGN NATURE - CONTEMPORARY CREATION: From February 9, 2024, to January 5, 2025
In "Foreign Nature," Julius Horsthuis creates a universe merging art and mathematics through computer-generated fractals. The exhibition is divided into two parts: the first explores industrial and mechanical landscapes, with spaceships and structures resembling churches. The second part presents landscapes and extraterrestrial forms, combining plant and mechanical elements, like a mutating vegetal cathedral. These worlds blend familiar shapes with fantastical elements, accompanied by the music of Ben Lukas Boysen. Horsthuis compares his style to that of a documentarian, capturing the existence of fractals in a creative process of discovery.
