Encastrable: Guerrilla Art in Megastores

Are highly commercial megastores and supermalls the new domains of guerrilla artists?


Encastrable is an interesting urban project intiated by Paul Souviron and Antoine Lejolivet of the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs. The project consists of a series of guerrilla art residencies (seven at the moment) held inside gardening and DIY megastores in and around Paris.

“At no cost at all, the young artists have at their disposal a huge array of material that they can grab, move, superimpose, and organize onto temporary installations and sculptures. Authorization of the manager of the establishment is obviously never requested.”
