Céleste Boursier-Mougenot

Internationally renown French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot is creating a new and unique artwork for Glow, a dusk-to-dawn art event on and near the beach in Santa Monica set for September 25, 2010.

Inspired by Paris’ Nuit Blanche, Glow will present 25 art projects that offer the audience an opportunity to engage and participate in the artworks, either directly or indirectly.

Boursier-Mougenot will locate his piece on the beach and through his deft use of advance technology he will link it to several other sites in Santa Monica.

Boursier-Mougenot is a composer and artist who now works primarily in large scale sculptural installations, often including sound. His work is a perfect synthesis of music and art, a perfect form for the 21st century. In 2010 alone, Boursier-Mougenot has shown in such important spaces at the Barbican in London, Le Maison Rouge in Paris and the Paula Cooper Gallery in New York.

Boursier-Mougenot’s participation in Glow is made possible through the support of the Flax Foundation and the French Cultural Services.
