The Blueproject Foundation presents Un nuage sur mes épaules, the first solo exhibition of the French artist Lionel Esteve in our country, which will be displayed in Il Salotto from March 06th until June 07th 2015. It is the first time the Blueproject Foundation presents a site-specific project designed to transform the exhibition space and use all the features and potentiality of this space.

Il Salotto is transformed into an autonomous universe where the viewer completely delves, discovering a poetry installation that converts the exhibition hall of the foundation in a colorful and dreamy world. Using the entire space of Il Salotto, Esteve plays with shapes and materials to propose a series of works presented as both air and dense, combining the most eye-pleasing and colourful objects with a black and white game. Esteve’s work explores these existential paradoxes, transcending the opposite poles of absence and presence, time and eternity or lightness and heaviness.
