Rebirth-day Michelangelo Pistoletto

The Espace culturel Louis Vuitton in collaboration with the Musée du Louvre celebrated Rebirth-day, the first worldwide day of rebirth.

21st December 2012 marked the winter solstice in the northern hemisphere and the summer solstice in the Southern; a date celebrated by humanity since ancient times, with connotation of “the end of the world”.
To mark this turning point more than 365 people came to the Cour Napoléon to draw a human chain in the shape of Contemporary artist Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Third Paradise and “New Infinity Sign”.
According to the artist’s manifesto, this symbol marks the fusion between a 1st natural paradise and a 2nd superficial paradise and Rebirth day had arrived to bring forward a third paradise where humanity can reconcile and conjugate artifice with the earth.
“An evolutionary step in which the human intelligence finds ways to live in harmony with the intelligence of nature.”- Michelangelo Pistoletto
