Melik Ohanian
NIGHTSNOW
1er juin - 31 août 2002

Under the generic title NIGHTSNOW, Melik Ohanian articulates his first gallery exhibition with six works and a full palette of media.

A simple action that modifies - the state of a street, of a building, of a public space. That alters a moment and one's perception.

Switch Off consists of a large light box, containing a b/w photography of the globe. On top of this synthetic image - a recomposition by computer of the world at night, produced by the NASA - a million of light dots reproduces the electric lighting used all over the planet. By means of a button, the viewer can commute this vision of the plane world into a constellation : 'The Sculptor's Studio' (one of the solar system's most remote constellations).
