Oops, not gonna lie, we slept on this one…


JR’s latest show, ACTIONS runs from the 11th October – 14th November 2013 at Lazarides Gallery, 11 Rathbone Place, London.


More jump off after the jump off…

A two-part exhibition, the London side of ACTIONS sees JR partnering with Lazarides for a large-scale exhibition filling two floors of their flagship gallery on Rathbone Place, as well as an outdoor public installation on multiple sites across the nationʼs capital.


On display will be a mix of colour prints as well as his signature wood mounted monochromatic paper pieces telling the story of JRʼs global initiative to employ art as a tool for global communication and understanding. Works within the gallery will highlight various
actions JR has accomplished around the globe and will include images from Wrinkles of the City Project in Berlin (spring 2013), his journey to North Korea and new images recreated in 2012 from the 2004-06 project, Portrait of a Generation set in the ʻLes Bosquetsʼ ghetto of Paris.


The buildings that featured the original images have since been destroyed, so this new series sees the faces looking at each other across an abyss of time and degradation, a mise en abime that speaks to the heart of Parisʼ recent history…
