JR – La Nascita, Milano Centrale, Italie – 48 Hour Timed Edition *SOLD*

JR adorns Stazione Milano Centrale with a rugged facade linked to its past.

With a surreal trompe l'oeil, La Nascita connects the architectural grandeur of the train station with the history of its construction. In 1906, many tons of rock were excavated from the alps to build train tunnels below Milan. JR’s dramatic portrayal of the hollowed mountains brings this history to life. By veiling the Roman, Art Nouveau, and Art Deco architecture of the station with his own image, the artist blurs time and place. Positioned at a site of arrival and departure, his intervention invites travellers to reflect on the human urge to explore the natural world, and construct their own.

JR archived the installation as a photograph shot across multiple moments in the day– available to all for 48 hours only as a signed, limited edition print.
