Since November 23, 2019 Paris 14th arrondissement has been housing a giant snail. Following this summer's success at Place Stalingrad, La Forêt Escargot is back in Paris. This time, the travelling installation can be seen till February 23, 2020 in Paris 24th arrondissement, by the Hôpital de la Rochefoucauld, on 15 Avenue du Général Leclerc.
Created by Inzouk Assoc, a non-profit association organizing cultural events related to street pictorial praxis, this uncommon installation highlights the work of 29 street artists.
They’ve all agreed to collaborate to sculpt, paint and create something inside and outside to give birth to this Forêt Escargot.
Here are the 29 street artists who worked on the project:
If the tail of the snail has been created by EvazéSir, the shell has been painted by Michael Beerens. Inside, visitors can discover a giant totem by Nosbé as well as a rain of light floral suspensions by Mademoiselle Maurice. Children and adults will take a walk down memory lane with the panda by Doudou’Style and Mosko’s giraffes.
Like the whole installation, La Forêt Escargot invites to think about the environment. By choosing to recycle materials, La Forêt Escargot makes us wonder about what our waste will become and invites visitors to “understand that beautiful isn’t inseparable from new”.
To discover this very poetic collective work, head to the Paris 14th arrondissement, not far from the Place Denfert-Rochereau.
