For his new show “JR au Louvre“, the remarkable Ted Prize-winning French street artist and photographer, JR used his talent for large scale photos to create a fantastic illusion in Paris. Using his trademark technique, JR made the iconic glass and metal pyramid that sits proudly at the entrance of the incredible Musée du Louvre completely disappear into the facade of the Museum building right behind it .

(translated) JR’s works leave no one indifferent because they are watching, deep within ourselves. His dramatic intervention fashion highlights the question of the role of images in the era of globalization and their their multicast, the intimate sphere to mass use. Today prompted by “the greatest museum in the world”, JR sets his sights on one of its symbols, the Louvre Pyramid, to subject it to an anamorphic surprise.
