Cédric Le Borgne uses wires to create sculptures of humans, birds, and marine animals and installs them on rooftops or suspended high in mid-air. Brightly lit from many directions, these mesh figures transform ordinary public space into a poetic scenery against the darkness of the night. For the Art Night, three birds of various sizes perch on the trees of the Roppongi Hills, creating an ephemeral, dream-like cityscape that dissolves at sunrise.


Cédric Le Borgne

Born in 1972 in Paris, France, and lives in Toulouse. He aims to present everyday life in a fresh way, to inspire his viewer to rise up and dream. From sculptures made of chicken wire to photography or video, from installations to spontaneous performance, from street-art to web-art, his work is free of formal constraints. His works were recently installed at Changi Airport in Singapore (2017), Geneva Lux in Switzerland (2017), and National Museum of Singapore (2015).
