Torero hood and banderillas for children.
Description of the work
The work of Olé! is part of the Accrochés-Plantés collection .
It was in 2018 in Nîmes that François Xavier Laloi produced this piece as part of the Remises en Formes exhibition, in tribute to the movement born in the south of France, Supports-Surfaces .
The artist wanted to appropriate the elements specific to the folklore of a tradition rooted in this city, La Corrida .
The work emphasizes a contrast between the objects used, from children's toys, and its subject. Thus, the artist amused himself by diverting the meaning of their use.
This is a unique piece produced in 1 single copy.
