Held at the Rodin Museum, one of the most atmospheric art museums in Paris, this exhibition recreated the studio of sculptor Henry Moore, one of the great English sculptors of the 20th Century. The lighting adjustments were difficult due to the high ceiling of the special exhibition room, which was a renovated chapel, although the space looked tremendous when it was filled with large volume of works.
In particular, sculptures with complex forms in a nested structure proved difficult to show up with light, and it took much trials onsite. My worries dissipated, however, from the moment I decided to “concentrate on creating beautiful shadows.” The curator, on observing the exhibition in its finished form, joking commented, “the lighting is so pretty, I think we will have to only open at night.” And those words have stuck with me.
