Florence Cosnefroy – Couleurs & Correspondances

Since 2014, Florence Cosnefroy has created a link between Le Corbusier’s colours and what the occupants of various Le Corbusier sites experienced there. For the Villa “Le Lac”, whose only inhabitants were the architect’s parents and his brother Albert, Florence Cosnefroy based her conception of Colours and correspondences on the extensive family correspondence, which makes frequent references to colours and the little house. The installation consists of 32 monochrome paintings associated with extracts from letters written from 1923 to 1965, thus establishing correspondences between texts and colours, between the Villa “Le Lac” and its residents, between the little house – a veritable architectural manifesto of the 1920s – and all of Le Corbusier’s work.
