Portfolio No. 37
Portfolio composed of several images including the fresco Chroniques of Montfermeil, size 21 x 190cm.
In 2017, JR pursued his collaboration with Ladj Ly. The two artists photographed 750 residents, workers or passersby, getting them to relive instants in their daily lives, then assembling them in a monumental mural, an epic series of images similar to the giant frescos of Diego Rivera (1886-1957). JR reveals the faces and memories of these locals living with the collapse of the utopia of Clichy-Montfermeil, its unemployment, its drugs, its social revolts and its urban mutations, from the Urban Renovation Project begun in 2012 to the creation of the Médicis Clichy Montfermeil project.”
This portfolio is delivered in its full box set: Wombat No. 37.
