Place du Bouffay
Temps étrangers
Julien Berthier

This year’s vast renovation of the tramway system in Place du Bouffay has made it a little trickier to feature an artwork… But public works are part of the city! Julien Berthier has thought a gigantic mobile suspended to a crane as an extension of the construction site.

The simple round shapes, primary colours, slight pendulum movements and unstable equilibrium are reminiscent of Alexander Calder’s own mobiles. did the workers use their spare time to create this colossal sculpture?
