From 15 to 21 May 2012, the largest work of art produced collectively : Plastic Bags, from Pascale Marthine Tayou :
– a reflection on the “symbol” of our daily consumption, echoing the 80 new shops of the largest commercial space ever opened in a French station,
– a “heart” that beats to the rhythm of a train every 28 seconds, a “hive” of 450,000 passengers each day, in the second station of Europe,
– a visual “impression”, modified at every moment by light, in the footsteps of the one who planted his easel in 1877: Claude Monet.
From 15 to 21 May 2012, mediators approached the crowd to propose to each passenger or SNCF agent to participate in this ambitious collective work.
