as part of galerie les territoires’ nuit blanche event “foire d’art forain contemporain” a participatory work called le smithson splat was created which visitors were invited to play.

by combining elements taken from the traditional  game “splat-the-rat” and Robert Smithson’s monumental land artwork “asphalt rundown”, this sculptural work attempts to close a gap between folk art and high-art.

the following information is displayed by the work:
