Continua XXL Online: JR presents "Giants, Peeking at the City, Havana, Cuba"
The 4th edition of #ContinuaXXLOnline presents #JR and his work “GIANTS, PEEKING AT THE CITY, HAVANA, CUBA”, a huge paste up of a little boy, Alain, who lives in Havana and who met the artist by chance when they were looking at the location for an eventual work to be pasted on the outside wall of ARTE CONTINUA.
Invited by #GalleriaContinua for the 13th Havana Biennial, JR created this work in April 2019. It incorporates many different perspectives, that of a little boy who plays every day in the square of the neighborhood as well as that of the city as a whole. The boy is “peeking” out over the city and towards the sea, the horizon and far-away lands, demonstrating the position of Havana in Cuba as an island nation, separated from the rest of the world yet open to new influences and outlooks.
