The Merry Go Round part two, sculptures by jyb (2013)Photos taken in Paris during the exhibition “Say Watt?” at La Gaîté Lyrique (june, 2013) :A couple of dancers in a “rub-a-dub” style. And in the background the sound system made out of cardboard by the penniless Mexicans of Dub Iration who, unable to buy the actual equipment, produce a look-alike to make believe they’re living the thrills of the Notting Hill Carnival. Great!!!Photos prises à Paris à la Gaîté Lyrique lors de l’exposition “Say Watt? le culte du sound system” :Un couple en train de danser le rub-a-dub. Et en arrière plan le sound system fait de cartons d’emballage des mexicains fauchés de Dub Iration qui, faute de pouvoir se payer le véritable équipement, le reproduisent en trompe l’oeil pour se donner le frisson d’être au Carnaval de Nottinghill.
