La voiture sur le lampadaire
The least we can say is that the name of this work is representative of reality! The lamppost car is a white Peugeot 406 overturned on its roof and perched on top of a candelabra. Hard to miss, the work created especially by Benedetto Bufalino for the 2019 edition of Les Extatiques, has since officially joined the art collection of Paris La Défense. It will soon be installed in the Valmy district, between the Spaces building and the Grande Arche.
Born in 1982, Benedetto Bufalino is an artist-adventurer of public spaces. A genius do-it-yourselfer, he takes a malicious pleasure in diverting everyday objects. Under his hands, a car becomes a ping pong table and telephone booths turn into an aquarium.
