Urban Intervention - L'Intruse
Today the urban environment is turning into an massive battlefield where groups and subculture communicate their desire of expression, critique and beauty against the rules of the establish system and the public order.
At the onset of the 20th century sixteen cities had a million inhabitants. At the middle of the 21st, 70% of the world population will be living in urban areas (UN ev.).
Cities are becoming the most important living area of human life, but it turns out that cities are mostly branded anonymous spaces. It explains our interest to revisited this spaces as a labatory for playfull experiments.
“There is no form or objects.
There is only events - emergences - apparitions”
"Il n'y a ni formes ni objets.
Il n'y que des événements - des surgissements - des apparitions."
“What changes our way of seeing the street is more important that what changes our way of seeing painting” G. Debord.
