Denicolai & Provoost – Revolution is not a pique-nique

Artist project

Denicolai & Provoost, Gilles Baume

This publication documents the Paris leg of the project initiated by Denicolai & Provoost, which was organised between 2011 and 2014 in cooperation with APDV centre d’art as part of the programme of cultural events of the frac île-de-france


Following an invitation in Ardèche in 2007, Denicolai & Provoost conceived Revolution is not a pique-nique, a temporary and conceptual project around issues of ownership and use of the natural landscape. By migrating their project to Paris, they extended the history of this work developing the concept of “temporary ownership” into the urban realm.
