In 2016, JR was invited to the Musée du Louvre. For the event, the artist announced he would make the museum’s famous glass Pyramid disappear. To achieve the feat, JR completely covered the structure with historical photographs pre-dating its construction. What resulted was a surprising anamorphosis: the museum’s forgotten former entrance bursting forth into the present and reclaiming its former glory. In doing so, JR revives the past and evokes the polemic that once surrounded the Pyramid’s construction – inadvertently, we are left to wonder whether we attach meaning to the wrong things, or simply are too quick to forget.
Our partners at The Skateroom, who collaborated with the artist to make this edition, donate a significant part of their profit to support social initiatives that make the world a better place.
