First cultural awards of The Loo & Lou Foundation

The Loo & Lou Foundation


In the framework of its support for artists and their creations, "The Loo & Lou Foundation" provided two awards to artists for the event "Nuit Blanche 2013”, which took place in Paris on October 5, 2013.


This artistic event, held overnight, offers public free access to museums, cultural institutions and other public and private spaces, and uses these sites to present installations and artistic performances. “Nuit Blanche” not only facilitates the connection between the public and contemporary art, but also promotes the discovery of unusual places or remarkable sites.


The two awards for 2013 were granted by the Loo & Lou Foundation to:


  • Dominique Lacloche for "un degré plus haut" in St. Paul St. Louis’ Church, a spiral installation made of 46 sculptures of giant suspended leaves.
  • Georges-Pascal Ricordeau for "Drapeau blanc" at the Historical Library of the City of Paris. This work of art is made of woven plastic bags, collected from all over the world.

Both projects generated great public interest. Given the success of this event, Dominique Lacloche’s exhibition was extended for a week and Georges-Pascal’s “Drapeau blanc” travels to Brussels for the International Day of Peace on October 20, 2013.
