French duo Monkeybird just wrapped up an impressive piece of work in Paris for a collaboration between Nanterre University and the Musée du Louvre…

This project born for the 50th anniversary of May 1968 (Nanterre University it’s was a crucial place for the philosophy of May 1968). The goal for this project was to use art piece from the Louvre. For this we used a lot of fragments of the statue from this museum (Venus de Milo, Hannibal, Les 4 Captifs…) and this is our representation about evolution of culture and the importance of the exchange between culture, this statue represents our collective memory, the top is the past and the bottom is our generation. Social challenges give rise to new cultural movements.

The piece measuring 20 by 7 meters was made using a stencil and the whole process is totally hand made.
