Light installation
Avenue du Général de Gaulle

Project: Sébastien Lefèvre, will light up the entrance to the city with these banners which will come alive when the sun goes down. Sébastien Lefèvre, a French artist, defines himself as a creator of light. His project “Oriflammes” (Banners) composed of coloured flags, creates a festive feeling, placed at the entrance to the city. The flags light up at night and give
the city of Mons this festive and childlike atmosphere. Sébastien Lefèvre’s work reminds me of the world of local fairs, the flags that are found at the seaside. It is a very poetic piece of work. The flags will be hung from 70 posts which will surround the roundabout. Lighting will give the installation a completely different aspect at night.
