WORLDWIDE///STREET LIFE///JR TAKES HIS “28 MILLIMETER: WOMEN” PROJECT TO CAMBODIA
French outdoor installation artist (call it “street art” if you must) extraordinaire JR continues his epic 28 MILLIMETER: WOMEN project with the unveiling this week of his most recent series of street-level installations in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. In town to photograph local women in the country’s capitol city, JR continues on his mission to portray the unseen and unempowered women of the world in and around the streets of their own neighborhoods. Reproducing the resulting imagery on a massive scale underscores the importance of these marginalized citizens and is intended to draw the eyes of the world to their often-unseen lives. A participant in the upcoming “Stages” art show to benefit LANCE ARMSTRONG’s anti-cancer LIVESTRONG charity, JR continues on with his next stop in Delhi, India before rolling into Paris in July to celebrate Tour de France and the biggest art project cycling has ever seen.
