Benedetto Bufalino’s public installations subvert our notions of an object’s function, whether it’s converting an entire city bus into a pool or a telephone booth into an aquarium. Many of his recent projects have occupied spaces in his native France. Another recent work: The artist changed a red Fiat into a street food car. Find more of his creations below.
“By distorting or hijacking the objects that surround us, using design, art or architecture, Benedetto Bufalino offers a reflection—a game—on the functionality of our living environment,” Cité internationale des arts sats. “This living environment—the world itself—becomes for him a very personal art gallery, while his works remodel the usual landmarks of the passer-by.”
