In front of Jules Verne circus, a huge scaffolding divided in 9 screens is used as a giant canvas for a colourful performance. For an hour, 6 European visual artists will be using 100 kg of black paint, as much white paint, kilos of coloured paint and 3600 m2 of cling film to paint ‘the mood of the day’. They paint fast, with skillfulness and sychronisation, while singing along live music…the audience is amazed as soon as the first canvas is done.
‘Look how fast they paint !’, ‘But why are they throwing their drawing away already, Daddy ? It’s a shame…’. Immense fresco as a tribute to the various civilisations and languages disappearing, painting celebrating the memory of Hiroshima’s victims, of the Death trains, images highlighting the role of advertissment or the art trade : each painting was warmly welcomed by the public. Not only the artists’ skills are impressive, but also the power of their images. Indeed, even if each painting is destroyed as soon as it is finished, their beauty and the mesage they convey will remain in each memory !
