Invited by the organisers of Cerka’l Festival, Penique contributed an inflatable at the 16th century Gothic Capella de Sant Sebastià, Piera. 
Transitional light was key to the exhibition so two main light sources were used. From opposite ends of the installation, a neon crucifix emitted a cool blue light, mixing with a contrasting warm pink hue produced by sunlight permeating the inflatable around the entrance.
Throughout the day, as light conditions changed and the two opposing light sources battled for dominance, a stunning transient blue-pink fade accentuated every crease and architectural detail of the inflatable.


El equipo del Cerka’l Festival de Piera, Barcelona, invita a Penique productions. Se realiza una intervención en la capilla gótica de Sant Sebastià, que data del s. XVI.
Penique productions presenta al público una propuesta donde la luz juega un papel destacado. Un crucifijo de 4 metros de altura de neón azul se enfrenta a la luz natural que entra del exterior a través del plástico rosado. Gradualmente, según la hora del día, la luz artificial impone unos tonos azulados sobre la luz natural que resalta el tono rosa del material, generando contrastes y matices en los colores y en las formas arquitectónicas.
