The spectacular installation Walk on Clouds, 2019, by Abraham Poincheval (born 1972) shows, in Gallery 9, the artist walking through the cloud canopy. Suspended in the air, he appears supported by a hot air balloon equipped with drones to capture his movements. The projected film results from this performance. This performance required the artist a total commitment of mind and body, and a risk taking such that this wandering seems to be as much a dream as a sporting feat.
