Blessed are the people who know how to see something completely unusual, original and amazing in ordinary things. This is the kind of person the French artist belongs to. Florian Riviere, who created an installation called Don't pay, play in the parking lot of one of the supermarkets in his hometown.
Supermarket carts are one of the most vivid and popular images that reveal the modern culture of consumption and shopping. No wonder the artists now and then use them in their work. Examples include a Christmas tree made from shopping baskets in a Santa Monica mall, or Florian Riviera's Don't pay, play installation.
The installation Don't pay, play, as mentioned above, was created by the author in the parking lot of a large supermarket, where Florian Riviere turned parking spaces into playgrounds for various outdoor sports - football, basketball, tennis, handball, etc. Of course, in a visual sense, not a practical one.
Moreover, the author used shopping carts from the supermarket as noticeable elements of these sports grounds. For example, on a football or handball field, they replace the goal, on a basketball field - baskets, on a tennis court - a tower for referees, on a volleyball field - a net rack.
Thus, Florian Riviere wants to show that playing sports is much better, much more beneficial for the health of a person and his wallet, than shopping.
