RÉALITÉ
Paris, France. 2014
We’ve been honored to be featured in one of the biggest cultural events in Europe, Paris’ “Nuit Blanche”, that took place during the night of October the 4th.
 
The spot we chose was included in the Urban Art itinerary. It is under the elevated rail tracks of the Metropolitain line 6, between stations Chevaleret and Quai de la Gare.
CONCEPT
By making an anamorphosis, we used the huge concrete and steel pillars, to write the word RÉALITÉ (reality).
 We played with the meaning of it, and it only could be read from the right spot.
 
This way we try to reflect the same reality that some people live under the same bridge, sleeping or having lunch in the social dining located in the same place. A difficult reality that we usually don’t see, but we know that is there.
