In France, one of the most visited places is the Louvre Museum. If you are someone going to France for the first time surely you should visit this place where many historical elements reside. Apart from the historical elements, the look of the glass pyramid museum is another reason why it is so famous. And in order to celebrate 30 years on the pyramid JR or Jean Rene, a famous French artist had given the place a beautiful optical illusion. With 400 people who had volunteered and 2000 paper stickers, he had transformed the place to give a look as if it’s in the middle of a grayscale quarry.
#1. The beautifully transformed Louvre.
Even on his social media, the artist had invited people to come and have a look at the beautifully transformed Louvre along with a picture of the picture of it. In his caption, he had mentioned the volunteers and the paper stickers that were used. And on the day many people had gathered in the place that the paper stickers used were torn off.
And below a picture of the partially ruined college, he had said that the images like life, are ephemeral. That once pasted the art piece lives its own. And also had said that the sun dries the glue and with the steps, people tear the paper. And had said more about this work.
Though this was created to celebrate the 30th anniversary he had said on Instagram that he wants to dedicate it to Agnès Varda, a French film director and a photographer who had worked along with JR. He had died at the age of 90 on the 29th of March 2019. Both of them had worked together in Faces Places in 2017. And that documentary details the journey of them travelling to villages in France and meeting different people and communities.
