Tuesday, March 24: Terminal 7
19:00 – 23:00
Venue address: Paris Expo Porte de Versailles, Pavilion 7, 1 Place de la Porte de Versailles, 75015 Paris
Terminal 7, recreated as a breathtaking reception space in Pavilion 7 of the Porte de Versailles, embodies the masterful work of Brazilian artist Guto Requena called The Rhizomatic Grid. This monumental structure covers the entire space and represents an inverted tree whose roots take root in the sky, diffusing electrifying multicolored lights. This creation is inspired by the structure of the rizome and emerges from the ground generating an interlacing of LEDs which transform it into an interactive, permanent and changing work of art. It is a truly inspiring space both inside and out, complete with magical views of Paris.
