Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité! Contemporary French ticklers for Bastille Day

In anticipation of Bastille Day, here is some contemporary art I saw last month at 59 rue de Rivoli, the artist squat right down the street from the Hôtel de Ville (Paris’s city hall), literally right down the street about three blocks away.  From city hall!  An artists’ squat!

First, these Eiffel Tower shaped dildos by Sébastien Lecca.


I invited Sébastien to Texas, where he could make longhorn-shaped, double-headed dildos.

Downstairs was this contemporary show that was riffing on Mondrian.

And finally here are some photos of those patriarchal phalluses, because why not? Vive la France!
