La Mise en Abine

This year, the famous Abbey church is getting slightly more modern than usual. For this year’s edition, a installation situated in the middle of the church, is designed by Swiss artist named Robert Crelier. Entitled La Mise en Abine ,the mesmerising installation comprises two large, extremely precise receptacles in which vast quantities of used oil are contained. Shaped like giant puddles, the sculptures with their shiny, and lacquer surfaces reflect the surrounding, allowing the viewers to interact with the architecture of the church by being pulled into the reflection so that they, in turn, become part of the sculpture itself. This mind blowing piece of art is more about illusion and practicality, than the aesthetical part. However, for me it looks beautiful!
