Bien Urbain 8
The 8th edition of BIEN URBAIN – Art in (and with) the public space, took place from 8 June to 8 July 2018 in Besançon. murals, installations, visits, workshops, screening, exhibitions… The Bien Urbain festival invited you for a month to be surprised by artistic interventions in (and with) the public space.we joined the team of the collective Hôp Hop Hop, which invests the Arsenal (in front of the Saint-Jacques hospital) temporarily, to welcome you throughout the festival. The associate artist was Brad Downey, already invited in 2014: perhaps you have seen his installation Depressed on the quai Veil Picard ? He hijacks urban furniture (cobblestones, benches, panels, etc.) in a playful and malicious way. His work reflects his interest in current events as well as in the absurdity of certain everyday situations.Nowadays he is one of themost famous artist in international urban art.
Bulimic about work and production, Christian Eisenberger treats reality with ephemeral in situ installations. After cutting and painting thousands of boxes, he placed them anonymously in public space. His work deals with a variety of themes, ranging from classic subjects in art history (life, death, vanity) to political subjects such as criticism of institutions.
