Artist JR makes the Pyramid of the Louvre Disappear, 2016

From May 25th to June 27th, 2016, invited by the “world’s largest museum”, JR chose to make one of its symbols, the pyramid of the Louvre, disappear thanks to an unexpected anamorphosis.

French street artist JR completed work on his latest public artwork. This sizeable photographic piece covers the glass pyramid outside the Musée du Louvre, causing it to disappear against the palace facade.

The project “JR au Louvre” uses the museum image as black and white photographic prints. These then adhere to the pyramid’s glass exterior. Viewing from just the right vantage point creates an illusion of the pyramid disappearing in front of your eyes!
