Dan Colen “En Grève” Installation @ colette

In creating a work of art from everyday objects, Dan Colen has followed in the steps of Duchamp’s Readymades with this piece composed exclusively of bicycles. Entitled “En Grève” the piece shows the intertwined bikes “on strike”, refusing to move, remaining in stillness, as one. Currently on display at world renowned boutique colette, after seven days the construction will be dismantled and the bikes will realise their potential as transportation devices and will be ridden around the Parisian streets. En Grève is available to see and even to touch from today.
