JR w/ The Skateroom – La Pyramide – triptych of skateboard decks

JR, a French photographer and street artist whose exact identity is not confirmed, has collaborated with The Skateroom. Thanks to his photographic collage technique, he exhibits his work free of charge on the walls of the whole world – attracting the attention of those who do not usually go to museums.

In 2016, JR was invited to the Musée du Louvre and he announced that he would make the museum’s famous glass Pyramid disappear. To achieve that, JR completely covered the structure with historical photographs pre-dating its construction. What resulted was a surprising anamorphosis: the museum’s forgotten former entrance bursting forth into the present and reclaiming its former glory. We are left to wonder whether we attach meaning to the wrong things, or simply are too quick to forget.
