The French artist Noël Dolla was a member of the revolutionary Supports/ Surfaces group from the late 1960s and 70s which took painting to a more conceptual level in response to the reactionary climate post-1968. The group rejected the Parisian art scene and often made works directly in the countryside. Dolla’s first piece in 1969 was to cover the limestone peaks of the Cime de l’Authion in pink vinyl. It was also there in 1970 that Dolla created three colored circles in the snow. In 1980, with Restructuration Spatiale n°5, Dolla investigated the urban landscape for the first time by producing three circles on a rocky beach in Nice. The here presented installation Restructuration Spatiale n°15 proposes a shared experience, inside of the space defined by the artist. The work can be seen as a continuation of Rêve éveillé (Daydream), a dialogue that began in the enchanting enclosed gardens of the Petit Palais in Paris in 2016.
