Jeroen Jongeleen aka Influenza has left his mark on the Besançon landscape. Using her body as a vector of creation, the ephemeral traces left by her frenetic race are perhaps still visible in (unexpected) places in our city…
Here, it is by the force of his strides and those of a dozen cheerful people that he managed to achieve this gigantic composition.

For more than 20 years, Influenza has practiced in public space in every direction: walls, ground, and air… From early on he used diverse tools from spray paint to plastic bags, passing by running and climbing… His practice physically questions the place of the individual in overregulated cities and exalts the signs deriving from the daily practicing of space.
