WITHIN THE FRAMEWORK OF: E.CITY PRAGUE
EPOS257, VLADIMIR TURNER
Vladimir Turner and Epos 257 have been invited for a commando-residency in Strasbourg, in prefiguration of the exhibition “Art of Urban interference“.
The artists had carte blanche and a very small budget. In one week, together or separately, they transformed, in a more or less lasting but always subtle way, several places in Strasbourg…
Road markers became antique columns by the simple use of flower pots, tape and black marker. The behaviour of European Union countries in the face of the migrant crisis was denounced… by installing a temporary border post on the pedestrian bridge between Kehl and Strasbourg. Vladimir Turner‘s banner Ne Travaillez Jamais* (*Never Work), a slogan from the 1968 French demonstrations, or Welcome to Europe, a performance that transformed a bench between the European Parliament and the European Court of Human Rights with 60 anti-homeless metal spikes, are all invitations to citizens to think and change their view of everyday life.
