Pauline Lecerf

Lampadaire Magazine

13 December 2021 - 22 January 2022

This winter, the new Lampadaire Magazine, produced by Pauline Lecerf on public lighting, will be launched. It is inspired by her research with astronomers, urban planners, insomniacs and night activists. The artist will propose a series of guided tours of Lille with her or alone with the magazine. Various elements will be discussed in no particular order: stories of famous and unknown street lamps, exercises in observing halos, a study of 'swan neck' forms, from mannerist paintings to taps, general reflections on the night and philosophical questions such as: why is it that when you build a vertical structure in public space, someone systematically ends up trying to climb it?
