When we talk about Banksy’s exhibition in Grigny, the same questions come up: “But is it in Paris?” ” No no. The 223 works of the most famous street artist in the world will be visible from Monday in Essonne, in the very heart of the Grande-Borne district. “When does it open, and how much does it cost?” A mother asks, trying to channel her three children. She has not heard of the event. But admits his curiosity: “I don’t know him at all, but for children, it can be interesting. “
A little further on, a woman comes out of a building. This home help did not pay attention to the poster pasted for a few days in the hall by the lessor, the Yvelines-Essonne Residences. “Exhibitions in Paris are too complicated to go and see them. Between children and work, I don’t have time, she confides. But if it’s right here, why not! “
“Sowing crop seeds”
Asseta, she spotted the poster. Banksy? She does not know “at all”. “I did not go to the Internet, I prefer to find out on the spot,” she announces.
The children of the district will in any case be able to admire the works of the star as part of a school trip. At the Buffalo school, the 14 classes already have a niche. “By the greatest of luck, several classes had already worked on the artist during the year,” explains Bertrand Juteau, the director of the establishment. For the others, there is work upstream. Our students do not often have the opportunity to go to museums. So as soon as the opportunity arises, we do not hesitate. Our goal is to sow seeds of cultivation among them. That they can then sow with their loved ones. “
