Lunar Tree
Mrzyk & Moriceau

Mrzyk & Moriceau’s piece for the cliffs of the Butte Sainte-Anne is their first autonomous sculpture. Lunar Tree takes the form of a dead 12-metre / 40-foot tall, immaculate white tree.

In the room they designed in the Château du Pé for Estuaire, black paint from the ceiling spills onto the walls, and night invades day. The same could be said for their work in general, where dreams seem to take over reality.

Lunar Tree takes the form of a dead 12-metre / 40-foot tall, immaculate white tree. By day, when seen from Square Maurice-Schwob, it rises out of the river, while at night, from the tip of Île de Nantes, a halo of light glows from each of the tree’s branches, surging out against the black background.
