Traverser un nuage by Jeanne Faure and Stéphanie Henry
Artists Jeanne Faure and Stéphanie Henry a sensory and cultural escape to all of those who dare to immerse themselves in a billowy clouds and clear sky breaks in this ode to the sky.
To create Traverser un nuage, the artists had to live it and observe it, so that it could foster a shared experience and discussions between people. The artists remodeled the space in order to allow visitors to look at things in a whole new light and build new ties.
An ode to the sky
This participatory work of art was created to pay tribute to the only scenery that can be observed by the gallery: the sky. A cloud has been placed in the heart of the gallery as a source of inspiration and escape.
Travelling through clouds
Cotton thread was woven to create the organic form that progressively shapes itself into billowy clouds with clear sky breaks. Visitors are invited to immerse themselves in a sensory and cultural experience that has never been seen before in a shopping centre.

DPLG Architect and ADUQ Urban Designer
Working as an architect and urban designer since 2006, Jeanne Faure has a transversal approach to her urban designs and architecture projects, thanks to her education and experience in other countries (Chile, France and Belgium). She is a vanguard of urban spaces and considers them both public stages and agoras for citizens. She is guided by two main themes. On one hand, she believes in all things urban: from a city’s landscape to urban design to raising awareness among citizens about neighbourhood challenges. On the other hand, she is adamantly focused on the human aspect of urban design by not only raising awareness among citizens about neighbourhood challenges but also encouraging people to look at things in a whole new light and build new ties.
