220 luminous terrestrial globes, 0.42m diameter each

Set on the ground, the archetypal figure of the globe is multiplied to create a floor of worlds without borders, which suggest an infinite journey. With this both familiar and mysterious terrestrial horizon, Ange Leccia shifts our gaze towards a new cosmos. The partial view of each globe, lit from the inside, allows for a kaleidoscopic reading in which the fragment is privileged over the whole.

The work is part of the iconic Arrangements series, which marks a distancing from the individual gesture of creation without proposing a mechanical and detached work. Here, the use of electric light produces a visual warmth that moves it away from the coldness of manufactured objects and the tradition of minimal art. At a time of globalization, the repetition of the luminous map of the world could seem to produce an impersonal installation, but instead multiplies the image of the earth and gestures towards a potential multiverse.
