Percée Lumineuse 2010

Seix. Gilles Thomat merges pine tree trunks and fibre optics.

The Lagorre Summer Festival, which lasts until 22nd August, has been a great success. This summer festival opens its doors to many renowned artists and to surprising new talents. Gilles Thomat remains unclassifiable, unless he is placed in the ‘inventive’ category. We have already seen his interest in documentary editing and video techniques, he is now revealed with a completely different speciality. “I collect pieces of pine trees in Aragon. After having cleaned and treated them, Ibring them back to life using light. A technique I perfected of working with computer technology”, he explains. From a single live feed in the stand, points of light are harmoniously dispersed, lit up by optical fibre. Ten years of practice before this appropriately named exhibition, ‘Illuminated Points’. A surprising effect is achieved when the tree pieces’ twisted shapes, guardians oftheir secrets, are revealed by a soft light.
