Guardian Angels
Light art to arouse contemplation
Text: Alison Ritter

The Guardian Angels light art installation uses coloured watering cans suspended over a flowerbed or lawn with optical fibres simulating flowing water. After dark they light up. The installation echoes the preservation of gardens and plants and, by extension, of nature. It highlights the role of the human and is a way of paying tribute to gardeners and landscaped areas designed to delight.
Unexpected and surprising as they are, these guardian angels – watering lanterns in effect – stop and challenge passers-by. They bring a smile to people’s faces and encourage contemplation within a landscape.
The visual artists who created this piece, Maro Avrabou and Dimitri Xenakis, combine their multidisciplinary backgrounds to create projects of all kinds that deal with urban and natural landscape. They live in France and work in Europe, Asia, and South America.
The two collaborate on works that question living spaces, points of view, forms and light. Their installations, often monumental in size, are a dialogue with the sites, their morphology, their history, their identity.
The Guardian Angels installation has been shown or is installed in: Fururoscope Park, Poitiers/F (2012 to 2014), Neuilly sur Seine/F (2013 to 2014), Light in Jerusalem/IL (2013) and Lumina Festival da Luz in Cascais/P (2013).
