Niko, Sculptor: 19 appearances - signal to broaden your vision at the Restaurant of the Opera Garnier

Start

The first time I saw the works of the sculptor Niko (thanks to Bark Hussain), I immediately thought of Daniel Buren's in situ works and signal art.

If these two artists are distant in the form of their art - Buren, the conceptual - Niko, an urban warrior shaman of the imaginary - they are in fact very close in their conception of art. Both create signal works to push us to see, to broaden our vision. They both invent new urban gardens with an unparalleled art of telescoping eras. Both create monumentality in the city - ephemera that sublimates the city!

Awakener of consciousness - Look at this place, think about the world you are in ...- the strength of these two artists lies not only in the form of their art but also in the response they bring to a site and for a site.

For his exhibit at the Garnier Opera House restaurant, Niko says, "Look, something's happening here."

Niko was not content to simply deposit his works - 19 appearances - in this mythical place in Paris. It is in fact the urban context that creates his work; it is the place itself that will make the work. Indeed, through the surprising articulation of hitherto unrelated elements (a place steeped in history and imagination and living sculptures from elsewhere) - these 19 apparitions by Niko allow a new understanding of the world, the city, the place and generate another way of seeing.

As with Daniel Buren, Niko's works are not works to be seen but spaces to be lived in, mental universes to be felt. Living Monuments.

So look, something's gonna happen...
