French artist Daniel Buran (born 1938) has filled the ground floor of the Lisson Gallery in Lisson Street in London with his installation “PILE UP: High Reliefs. Situated Works”. Brightly coloured, different arrangements of bold, three-dimensional shapes, with his trademark stripes, are set on vertical mirrors that change in perspective as the viewer walks around them and they reflect each other and also catch reflections from the street, of the trees opposite, of cars passing by and of pedestrians who stop and look through the window. Through these reflections, Buran has broken down the boundary between the inside and the outside.
Buran’s work can also be seen at his murals on the new entrances to Tottenham Court Station, commissioned by Art on the Underground and continuing the tradition of commissioning such work, moving on from that of Eduardo Paolozzi down in the station below.
