french artist phillipe petremant creates a comical collection of artworks entitled ‘the magnificent seven’ by folding banknotes and transforming the ornamental motifs into absurdist portraits, currently being shown at festival circulation(s), at parc de bagatelle in paris. pétremant’s mutation of ordinary and usual objects into works of art challenges one’s concept of reality, blurring the limit between what is credible and what is not.
