Vladimir Turner work combines art in public space and activism. In tribute to P.J Proudhon, “anarchy father” born in Besançon, he climbed up the statue erected in his memory rue du Général Sarrail, to offer him a pendant made of a big gold chain and a block of stone.
Through this intervention and 50 years after 1968, Vladimir proposed a critic of revolt and politic art merchandising Before the installation, he invited 8th edition’s artists to pose with the pendant in the position they want.
