  • About the artwork

    Artwork sold in perfect condition

    La Ligne Blanche was created in IDEM, the oldest printing house in the Montparnasse district of Paris which dates from the 19th century.

    On the occasion of an annual call to value forgotten and unused places in the city of Paris, 21 proposals have been selected from the 700 submitted by artists from all over the world. Two correspond to Escif.

    La ligne Blanche, his first intervention, has been developed on the side wall of the Keller school, next to the Bastille, at 11eme arrondissement. The artist had developed poetical, philosophical and political aspects, always maintaining his intention not to use the spaces as physical support of the work but to dialogue with it.

    It's not the first time Escif intervenes artistically in Paris. In 2017, he had been invited to paint on the side facade of the Palais de Tokyo (2018), known as the Cathedral of Contemporary art in Europe.

    The print is a reproduction of this wall.

We feel that a street intervention have sense not because there's an artist behind, but because there is a viewer before.

Street isn't an art gallery, nor a museum, nor a gift shop. Fortunately! Art tag is a frontier between a street intervention and the viewer. The market and the politicians monopolise street for its own benefit, against people. We have the opportunity to face this with a different language. We don't feel on art just to promote ourself. We feel on art to propose a different use of public space.

The meaning behind a street piece is the meaning that the viewer build around it. The artist explanation doesn't matter at all. A big dick in a bridge in front of the KGB building is a big dick in a bridge in front of the KGB building. If the authors had explained that the real meaning of this piece was just the spring arrival, it doesn't matter. For people who faced this piece it will continue being a big dick in front of the KGB building. Bravo!

We don't want to promote any manifest, nor to convince nobody about our feelings. These are just words, full of contradictions and words, mostly, are blown with the wind.

So, lets try with images!
