an exhibition in Corbusier's Villa Savoye on the color of light
from the lab
As a continuation of her research on "the colors of light", Marine Rouit Leduc, founder of Meaningful Studio, was offered the opportunity to create a carte blanche exhibition in Le Corbusier's Villa Savoye, French national monument.
What kind of dialogue can we create with this emblematic building?
We created the exhibition "Objets Polychromes", a collection of 10 pieces of art that play with and color the natural light in the Villa Savoye. In each room of the villa, light is reflected by mirrors or subtly filtered and tinted by curtains or colored filters and materials. Each piece brings life to the villa by evoking domestic activities: cooking, sleeping, washing, relaxing, contemplating.

“All the pieces aim to showcase the color of light; to showcase this very intangible physical dimension.”Marine Rouit Leduc
