Radiant Auras, 2022
Site-specific vinyl window installation
Dimensions vary

Created for PAssAGE 1 curated by The Eye Sees More at SUMMER, Lyon, France.

Originally based in Arles, The Eye Sees More is an itinerant gallery. Their curation platform travels around Europe to find unconventional venues to present the work of exciting established or emerging artists in France and abroad. Each stop being a ‘PAssAGE’.

As the first PAssAGE artist, Fiona Grady designed a new window installation Radiant Auras for the shop frontage at SUMMER in Lyon. Based in the centre Lyon’s Bellecour, a busy shopping district. This artwork is a follow up to LUX her collaboration with The Eye Sees in 2019 which also used street level windows in the heart of Arles.

Radiant Auras is a continuation of her exploration into the application of colour and reflective materials to create a sources of light. The transparent coloured circles are a harmonious palette of tones that when placed together appear to glow. They indicate a radiant light that scatters across the windows spilling into the shop interior and onto the pavement outside. The sequence of shapes could be many things: the blurring of lights, water droplets, halos, or even bouncing balls. They are purposefully open to interpretation allowing the viewer to bring their own connotations to the work. However as they playfully dance across the glass the luminous orbs introduce an ambient aura to their setting.
