I had a pleasure the whole last week to help out the most amazing French artist, that goes by the name – JR.
JR came to London with his photobooth truck and gave Londoners a chance to participate in Inside Out Project. The portraits were pasted on the terrace of the Somerset House. If you have a spare minute, make sure to head down over there to take a look at those amazing portraits and statements that those people are representing.
If you have missed out on this opportunity – visit http://www.insideoutproject.net/en/participate. And remember:
“Any important subject, any statement, can be strengthened by the INSIDE OUT. The project gives anyone a voice through his or her image.”
Get some people together or do it yourself, for a cause, to state something etc. find a wall or a space and show the world what you stand for.
JR also has a solo exhibition in Lazarides Gallery. It runs until 14th of November, the address and all the details you can find here.
Check out the video from the show opening, made by the guys from Beyonder – JR exhibition in Lazarides.
I was lucky enough to be on the premiere of JR’s movie INSIDE OUT: The People’s Art Project. It is an inspiring piece of work, directed by Alastair Siddons. During some parts I had tears rolled down my cheeks. The movie should be available in a couple of weeks.
Onward and upward,
