A disco mixer, Grolée district

They created one of the most magical attractions back in 2007 – an underwater telephone box, full of fish and seaweed. Artists Benedetto Bufalino and Benoît Deseille, masters in the transformation of ordinary objects, have now turned a cement mixer into a giant disco ball, with cut up mirrors decorating its belly. A wee nod at the disco ball at the top of Fourvière basilica in 2014.

 

We’re having a party. And the music is going to come from the cement mixer

Their disco mixer is going to be parked in the Grolée district, rue Président Carnot.
