Since 2012, Xavier Veilhan develops Architectones, a series of artistic interventions in key areas of modernist architecture. After three stages in Los Angeles (VDL Richard Neutra, CSH # 21 by Pierre Koenig and Sheats-Goldstein Residence by John Lautner), this exhibition is the fourth in a series that will continue in September at the Church of St. Bernadette du Banlay, Nevers, with Claude Parent and Paul Virilio.
On the terrace of the Cité Radieuse, the artist is exhibiting among other, rays, beams of lines defining a virtual plane between the vertical and horizontal roof of the Cité Radieuse, a bust of Le Corbusier, a structure hanging in the gymnasium, and many other elements.
