Video Teaser : JR – Les Bosquets @Tribeca Festival

French artist JR will be presenting his latest movie “Les Bosquets“, on a music by Hans Zimmer, Pharrell Williams and Woodkid, as a world premiere at the NY Tribeca Film Festival in April. Inspired by Portraits of a Generation (2005), where he shot portraits of residents in the French suburbs during the riots of 2005, and following his New York City ballets projects (2014), JR returns to the guetto of Montfermeil.

The film “Les Bosquets” brings the audience in a place where art, social uproar and the power of image interweave. The film is a continuation of his first project, Portraits of a Generation, for which he uses various means of expression and narration : video archives, choreography and testimony.

The short film will be presented exclusively in galleries and museum shows.

Vhils - Dissonance

The show reflects on how various factors compose the contemporary urbanised world that is shaping its inhabitants, while personal identities are vanishing under the visual urban noise and surrounding clutter.

The subjects being portrayed disappear through multiple layering of billboards and stratification on metal and wood.
