Louvre’s pyramid – level 3

Louvre’s pyramid – level 3

01-06-2016 15:00

I think someone needs to alert the French authorities – a Paris icon has vanished!

French artist JR has made the Louvre's pyramid disappear. The artist hid the famous entrance behind a huge image of the museum.

The work camouflages the 1980s pyramid behind a black and white picture of the buildings that surround it. From a specific spot in the museum's courtyard, it appears as if the huge glass pyramid has disappeared.

The French artist has transformed buildings and neighbourhoods around the world with his work, turning streets into giant collages. In 2009, he covered the Kibera slum in Nairobi with portraits of its women residents.

The vanishing act will remain in place for a month, during which time JR will take over the entire museum for a day. So, if you visit the French capital any time soon, just be careful not to walk into any monuments.

Difficult words: alert (to warn), vanish (to disappear, to become invisible), huge (very big), camouflage (to hide), resident (a person who resides – lives somewhere), entire (whole).
