JR and Darren Aronofsky’s Silent Protest in Paris

thestandingmarch

French artist JR and acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky unveiled their collaborative project, The Standing March, on November 29th and 30th in Paris. While the city has banned protests for security reasons after the recent terrorist attacks, the images of over 500 people were projected onto the Assemblée Nationale building as a form of silent protest related to the United Nations conference on climate change. The piece, which also features music from 3D (of Massive Attack), will tour from December 1-7, at various locations. Watch the short video feature (directed by Vincent Lorca) below!

The World’s Largest Pasting: JR’s Latest Work Captured in this Stunning Film

The French port of Le Havre is run solely by men, dockers whose work has been passed down from father to son for generations. The first image, of the three men in shipping containers represents three generations of the same family. JR chose this specific location to continue his Women Are Heroes project, creating a giant image of a woman’s eyes on a 363-metre long container ship. It took 2,600 sheets of paper to complete the image, which will travel all the way to Malaysia.

The artwork brings the first woman to the port, and the film pays tribute to all the men who helped create it. Watch filmmaker Guillaume Cagniard’s gorgeous document of the project, “Rivages”, below!
