Claude Gilli | Attention chute de pierres, 1980, Sur le motif, 1980, Attention au feu, 1984
Description: 
Claude Gilli installs his easel in the middle of the August crowd and executes a painting with snails. He even asks a beach attendant to act as his model. She hands him the snails as they go along. Gilli is stricken by the people's indifference. Nobody notices him. He will redo this gesture with the help of a camera and this time the crowd regrouped around him.
