Horizon is part of Contact, the first solo exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton, on display until February 16th, 2015. The artist of Irish origin, known as the master of light, investigates, through a series of works, the relationship between the self, the universe and the space, and with a series of games between light and shadow drives the viewer to the horizon that separates the known from the unknown.

Contact is an immersive installation: the viewer begins its journey touching a meteorite, then passes through a room full of shadows and geometric shapes in motion, walking in a corridor of black sandpaper to meet a black hole and find himself on the roof in front of a solar tracker. Deep black, optical effects, giant mirrors, neon lights and shadows are the protagonists of works representing a continuous exploration of human perception.
