Don’t pay, play!

Florian Rivière describes himself not without reason as a »urban hacker«. His interventions are exclusively made by objects he found in the street. Reprogramming the city implies for him playing with the waste material lying around unattended, building and staging cheeky interventions that subvert the norm with bursts of spontaneity and humor.

Bouquet Final

French conceptual artist Michel Blazy makes rare use of white foam. His latest installation called »Bouquet Final« was located inside a 13th century monastery near the Jardin des Plantes in Paris. This free-flowing, floodable substance was bubbling a collection of amazing cloud formations into the classic architecture of the building in an impressive way. The foam was produced by a generator from behind the installation. For more examples of Blazy’s work, visit his gallery. Beware: installation is not suitable for foam parties.

Tapis Rouge

A breath of green lies on the streets of Jaujac, a small medieval village in southern France. A long path of about 168 rolls of grass extend for 1400 meters leads visitors through the heart of this beautiful place. »Tapis Rouge« is the work of Marseillian artist Gaëlle Villedary.

Panic Room

An empty white room and the idea of Chaos: Tilt’s graffiti room in Marseille combines these two ideas perfectly. The Panic Room is a commissioned work for the Hôtel »Au vieux panier« that features five artist rooms once a year.
