In Memoriam of Last Year's Bastille Day Celebration

Peter, Lisa and family's significantly memorable Bastille Day Celebration last year inspired the Algerian artist Adel Abdessemed to erect a 16 foot version of the event at the Pompidou Center in Paris. It was installed only a month after the party last year. Unlike most statues, this one, in the words of exhibition organizer Alain Michaud, "goes against the tradition of making statues in honor of certain victories. It is an ode to defeat."
