The Magic of Immersive Exhibitions at L'Atelier des Lumières

The Magic of Immersive Exhibitions at L'Atelier des Lumières

Categories : Exhibitions and Museums, published on : 2/5/24

Less than a fifteen-minute walk from Hotel Marais Bastille, L'Atelier des Lumières is a unique place to immerse yourself in art. This former foundry was transformed a few years ago into a center for digital exhibitions. The artworks are projected onto all surfaces, not only the walls but also the ceilings and floors, creating unique plays of colors and lights. Starting from February 9, L'Atelier des Lumières presents a new exhibition dedicated to the Egypt of the pharaohs, from Khufu to Ramses II. Don't miss it!


Unique Emotions

The latest technologies are ideally used at L'Atelier des Lumières to serve beauty and emotion. Here, there is no explanation, no museum itinerary. The projections immerse you directly into the heart of the artworks, letting you discover details, moving through paintings and scenes. Light highlights the richness of colors and the texture of materials, providing an exceptional depth of perception. Thus, without intellectualizing the works, you are in direct contact with the emotion they evoke. The music adds another layer to the experience. This closeness to the artworks also makes digital exhibitions accessible to everyone, from children to adults, from art enthusiasts to those not accustomed to museums. Finally, the projections follow one another, allowing you to progress at your own pace through the images, either watching them completely still or inventing your own path in this space.


The Beauty of Ancient Egypt

After exhibitions that have become references, such as those dedicated to Van Gogh, Cézanne, Klein, or Klimt, L'Atelier des Lumières once again makes a big impact with "The Egypt of the Pharaohs, from Khufu to Ramses II." The finesse of bas-reliefs, the hieratic beauty of statues and death masks, the delicacy of frescoes and motifs, the fragility of papyrus, every aesthetic element of ancient Egyptian culture appears here in all its splendor. This enchantment will take you from the monumental sculptures of Nefertiti and Akhenaten to the paintings of the temples of Luxor, passing through the gold of Tutankhamun's tomb, in a journey where the intensity of colors, the beauty of forms, and the grandeur of the whole make us touch the achievements of Egyptian civilizations. Finally, this exhibition is accompanied by a second one dedicated to the Orientalists. After the majesty of ancient Egypt, you will see these archaeological and artistic wonders through the eyes of the great French painters of the 19th century who contributed to their rediscovery, such as Delacroix, Ingres, and Gérôme.


Every new digital exhibition at L'Atelier des Lumières is an event. Take advantage of your stay at Hotel Marais Bastille to discover it. Tickets can be purchased online, allowing you to skip the entrance queue and immediately immerse yourself in the magic of Egypt of the Pharaohs.
