Continuum by Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves is a film of a sunset on Mars.

Her immersive installation based on images of the Red Planet shows the sun setting to the score of seminal electronic composer Éliane Radigue’s Koumé (Trilogie de la mort). Continuum plays with the idea of optical and cosmic illusion : on Mars so on Earth, the sun never sets.

Félicie d’Estienne d’Orves (FRA)

Born in Athens in 1979, Félicie d´Estienne d´Orves lives and works in Paris.

A plastic artist whose chosen material is light, her installations and performances call on a phenomenological knowledge of reality and question the conditioning of our vision.  Light is both the tool and the subject of her work. She is interested in defining the physical and cosmological limits of space, through light and its speed.

Her work has been presented at the Centre Pompidou – Nuit Blanche – Le Centquatre 104 (Paris) – Le Fresnoy Scène Nationale (Tourcoing) – La Friche Belle de Mai (Marseille) – Cheminée EDF (Le Havre) – Abbaye de Maubuisson (Saint-Ouen-l’Aumône) – Watermans Arts Center (London) – New Art Space/Sonic Acts (Amsterdam) – TBA Teatro do Bairro Alto (Lisbon) – Ars Electronica (Linz) – Elektra Festival (Montreal) – Day For Night (Houston) – OCAT (Shanghai) – Aram Art Museum (Goyang/Korea)…
