Purple Rain

Pierre Ardouvin


Referencing the legendary film and song by the late great artist formerly and forever known as Prince, French artist Pierre Ardouvin literally interprets the works’ melancholic spirit to create an unforgettable sensory experience, which proved to be one of the most popular works of both the 2011 Paris Nuit Blanche and White Night Melbourne 2014. The result is a breathtaking visual and sound installation that incites you to pick up a transparent umbrella and wander through an actual lilac-coloured shower.

We can’t wait to see you laughing in our purple rain!
