Last minute project by NYC artist Dan Colen installed in the courtyard of the Colette offices for the duration of the FIAC, in partnership with Gagosian Gallery. Applying pressure to the mass availability and implicit trust embedded in the Vélib system of public transportation, Colen has realised an absurd, vaudevillian gesture which functions both as sculpture and event. This site-specific work will occupy the space for seven days, after which, the bicycles will return to their principal function, circulating throughout the city of Paris, carrying the spirit of their time as Dan Colen’s artwork with them. ‘No Velibs Were Harmed In The Making Of This Sculpture.’
