Lek & Sowat
Mausolée
Alternatives, 2012

Signed and dedicated by Lek & Sowat.

On August 12, 2010, Lek and Sowat found an abandoned supermarket in northern Paris, four floors and 40,000 m2 of blank walls. Huge and endless rooms where hundreds of people used to live before being driven out by the police overnight... For a year, in complete secrecy, the two artists went almost everyday to this mystical place to paint and organize a unique clandestine artistic residence. They asked about forty French graffiti artists and photographers, from the first to the last generation of the movement, to join them, for a day or a week. Together, they created a mausoleum, a temple dedicated to their underground culture about to disappear in the era of street art and its globalized pop aesthetic. This book aims at showing the major visual stages of this extraordinary experience.
