Our Insiders' Article


The world of modern art is a strange one indeed… Strange ideas, strange designs, strange material. Yet who said that strange was not fascinating? The exhibition Astralis at the Espace Culturel Louis Vuitton, located on the top floor of the Louis Vuitton flagship store on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées, is a perfect example of this fascinating strangeness. From light sculptures to wire netting animals, Astralis will transport you to another dimension. So leave your present behind and let the atmosphere of each artist reach into your soul.


The exhibition actually starts when you are still in the street. The shop windows on Rue Bassano (a side street off the Champs-Elysées) is the first contact you will have with the exhibition. The next step is the ground floor of the Louis Vuitton building on Rue Bassano and the pitch black elevator that will take you to the last floor. From there, 8 rooms await, with very surprising and fascinating sculptures and paintings.

Ambiance and Decor

The dark elevator ride sets the tone: forget everything you know and travel to an unknown destination. On the upper floor, the first sculptures are set in very dark rooms, but the farther you go in the exhibition, the more light you will find. To stress the feeling of being out of our world, either complete silence or strange sounds are diffused here and there. At the end of the exhibition, you will also be able to admire the view of the Champs-Elysées and the Arc de Triomphe from the building’s rotunda.


The exhibition kicks off with a sculpture of Myriam Mechita (hellquakes) in the shop windows. Enter the building through the entrance on Rue Bassano, and you will immediately enter the world of David Altmejd and his Mask Galery on the ground floor, a sculpture of six winged angels in a circle, the center of which is a sacred space that knows no bounds. If you still haven’t penetrated into the surreal world of the Astralis exhibition, the elevator ride to the top floor in complete darkness will definitely put you in another state of mind once you reach the top.


Step out of the elevator and the curious light sculpture “Arches of Solaris” by Norwegian artist Borre Saethre will welcome you. The exhibition continues to the right by entering a very dark room with an eerie sculpture of a skull by Chloe Piene, followed by one of the most impressive artworks gathered here, the giant wire netting sculpture of a stag by French artist Jean-Luc Favero. After admiring other intriguing sculptures from French and international artists, you will enter the room dedicated to Damien Deroubaix. His paintings of Death, South of Heaven, Time and Messiah hang on the walls, but make sure to look up: the large Astralis painting gave the name to this exhibition.


The second part of the exhibition is much brighter than the first part, much darker. Myriam Mechita’s room offers some of her most surprising and daring work, from sculptures to photographs and paintings. The exhibition continues to the left, but take a right turn after Mechita’s room to look at all the artworks created by Art Oriente Objet, a duo of French artists). If you are a frequent traveler, try to guess what country the paper bills come from! Cross the small “souvenir shop” to enter the realm of Rina Banerjee, an Indian woman that uses rare objects such as stuffed crocodiles, ostrich eggs and amber flasks in her sculptures. The exhibition ends where it begins, in front of the elevator.


You don’t need to be a modern art amateur to appreciate the works of the artists exposed at the Espace Culture Louis Vuitton, but what you do need is an open mind. The concepts and worlds imagined by the artists can sometimes be quite incomprehensible at first sight, but there is no doubt that with the right state of mind, one or more artworks exposed here will surely cling to your memories.
