The Event: Art in color!


To coincide with the "En Couleurs" event, Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche is pleased to present Inflatabowl #2, an artwork by visual artist Laurent Perbos, on display at the store until 23 August.


Born in 1971 in Bordeaux, Laurent Perbos lives and works between Marseille and Paris. Informed by the new realists, the artist has gathered and contorted large numbers of manufactured objects from popular leisure culture.

Laurent Perbos brings to life imaginary, lyrical and emotive worlds, drawing inspiration from the history of art, as well as his own experience.


The result is an intriguing blend of the real, the melancholy, the symbolic, the fantastic and the poetic, achieved by distorting the senses.

Laurent Perbos has created a new installation for Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche in the form of "Inflatabowl #2".


Suspended from the wall as if by magic, the artwork combines bouncy pool inflatables in bright and neon colours with artificial foliage.


The aesthetically pleasing ready-made oeuvre gives rise to a feeling of "the uncanny" – in the words of psychoanalyst Sigmund Freud – and explores our relationship withmass culture.
