Pier and Ocean is an enclosed space within which the soft pulsating light of a neon tube composition recreates the movement of the sea. François Morellet invited Japanese artist Tadashi Kawamata to create a wooden jetty leading the viewer into the installation. In 2014, Morellet said: ‘For over half a century, the works that have served as my models and which always give me great pleasure when I see one, are the works from the series Pier and Ocean, which Mondrian painted in 1914.’
