Les Cascadeurs installation

Artist creates an image in a roaring waterfall

Les Cascadeurs installation by Laurent Gongora’s is a mammoth piece of art which carves out shapes into a cascading waterfall in France by interrupting the flow of the water.

I thought it would be interesting to tame the way water is falling

LesCascadeurs

Laurent Gongora changed the shape of the Cascade de Vaucoux waterfall by attaching 24 steel shapes which stick out of the waterfall and re-direct the falling water.

For any wildlife that dares to go near this spectacular piece there is a horizontal bar that provides shelter rewarding the bravest of those local animals.
