Larissa Fassler 'Les Halles'
dismantled again, artist Larissa Fassler tries to preserve the “complex derelict knot of rail and Métro interchanges, subterranean retail chain stores, tunnels, and passageways that make up Les Halles today”.
Through cheap cardboard paper the artist experiences the space of the banal, of the eveyday, the shop, the mall, the passageways and the escalators.
Miniature fragments contrast, with their near-obsessive precision, the dysfunctional emptyness of derelict non-lieux.
