Bien Urbain 2017: Ericailcane and His New Barbed-Wire Story

Posted on May 29, 2017

Just in time for his exhibition opening at musée du temps de Besançon, Italian Street Artist Ericailcane has just finished his latest wall with the Bien Urbane festival and the story it tells is troubling.

The Bologna native whose animal world personifies the behavioral traits of humans – sometimes with alarming accuracy – brings this cuddly pairing to a large wall at 8 rue des Chaprais in Northeastern French town.

But are they so cuddly? Standing on either side of a fenceline and with armaments all around on the ground by one of the sheep, his neighbor is capable of freeing the him from his barbed wire conundrum, but the tool of liberty remains secreted behind his back.

The indoor museum exhibition explores the ages of life, the perception of the world as children and adults. As it turns out, so does the outdoor exhibition.
