Argentinian artist Julio Le Parc‘s artwork Continuel-mobil Argent, 1967 is in IMMA’s Collection. The artwork has lines of small aluminium squares hanging down on strings. The squares gently move according to air flow in the gallery. Even the presence of visitors close to the work can affect the metallic squares, moving them slightly from side to side. The aluminium reflects light as they move.

Argentinian artist Julio Le Parc settled in Paris in 1958 where he became part of an influential and innovative group that included Victor Vasarely. Prominently associated with the Op and Kinetic Art movements, Le Parc developed a rational and scientific approach to art that denied subjectivity and self-expression. He was awarded the painting prize at the Venice Biennale in 1966. Le Parc's work was much admired by Gordon Lambert who donated several of his works to IMMA.View Artist
