Le Parc Lumi¿re focuses on a single, key aspect of Julio Le Parc's work--his preoccupation with changing light. Le Parc, born in 1928 in Mendoza, Argentina, is one of the world's best-known kinetic artists. By 1958 he had moved to Paris and begun creating his first light works and mobiles, most of which were made in the 1960s, while he and other young artists, including Fran°ois Morellet, were founding and developing GRAV (Groupe de Recherche d'Art Visuel). This large-format publication contains a comprehensive selection of those works that use both light and movement. It also includes an essay from Sebastin LÄpez and an interview with the artist that is full of insights into his world and his work.
