Daily Tips: Julio Le Parc’s Kaleidoscopic Art

Argentinian-born artist Julio Le Parc (1928, lives in France) is known for creating artworks that dynamically animate and transform space through light. Featuring seminal installations and interactive works from the early 1960s to the present day, Le Parc’s playful and mesmerising exhibition at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery in London transforms the exhibition space and actively involves visitors. The exhibition highlights the different dimensions in Le Parc’s works, from his politicised drawings and interactive works to his iconic light installations. Experimentation with light as well as the physical involvement and visual stimulation of the spectator have been crucial throughout Le Parc’s career. The visitor’s participation is both passive and active, with the exhibition design reminiscent of an amusement arcade and its numerous booths.
