Julien Lelievre - Art D'autoroute

Publisher Building Books

ISBN 9782956781509

Idea Code 19467

Julien Lelièvre trekked thousands of kilometres and spent years researching in order to document and photograph 71 works of art scattered about the French motorway network. This pictorial inventory, organised into twelve itineraries, is introduced by a collection of photographs that form an intimate diary of his travels. Taken as a whole, the images offer surprising insight into the peculiar world of the motorway and provide a broad perspective on a sometimes disparaged and often unrecognised public art form. The volume includes route maps, meticulous documentation on each photographed object, and additional texts about the phenomenon by four authors.
