Recap: JR at Galerie Perrotin – Massive Paste-Up Covers a Footbridge in Hong Kong!
Following his open photo shoot in July of this year, JR Opens his show Pattern at Galerie Perrotin with a bang, putting up a massive paste up covering a footbridge in Central, Hong Kong.
The paste up is part of JR’s global project “INSIDE OUT” which has taken paste ups of unprecedented scale to cities all over the world and encourages participation from all. As seen in other cities such as Paris, Tel Aviv and Ramallah, Galerie Perrotin has been equipped with an “INSIDE OUT” photobooth which spits out black and white A1 self portraits for those photographed to paste up in the streets themselves.
To learn more about “INSIDE OUT” go to www.insideoutproject.net/ or watch the trailer below.
