Gallery: Daniel Buren’s Kaleidoscopic Structures Installed in Grand Pal...

Taking over the Grand Palais in Paris, Daniel Buren's kaleidoscopic installation is the feature of this year's Monumenta exhibition which opened yesterday. Buren has created an interactive space within the hall to celebrate the beautiful glass architecture and history of the space. Colorful circular discs create a walkway for visitors to pass beneath, and become active ingredients of the artwork.

Despite creating a giant rainbow of color that maximizes on the grand space, Buren’s work remains subtle. It was carefully designed and built using minimal materials, but transforms the Palais into a site of hidden pockets and dimensions. By creating a series of secluded spaces within the work, Buren invites curiosity and exploration from the audience.

Celebrating its fifth year, Monumenta has already hosted a range of acclaimed artists, such as last years colossal structure from Anish Kapoor. The installation will be open through June 21.
