Agfa Graphics´ Anapurna prints cover the Panthéon building in Paris

, Agfa Graphics/agfagraphics.com

When the famous Panthéon building in Paris was being restored in June 2014, the outdoor advertising cooperation JCDecaux Advertising and the Parisian municipal team in charge of events developed and installed more than 3000 m² of canvas both on the inside and on the outside of the building.

The project was sponsored by the Centre des Monuments Nationaux, which commissioned the design of the canvas sheets to JR, a contemporary and internationally renowned artist. He created a participatory work encapsulating the humanistic and universal values embodied by the Panthéon. It consists of more than 5000 portraits which were taken of visitors to nine national monuments, or uploaded to the project’s website earlier this year. The realization of the project required more than eight months of study and validations.

The canvas walls and the floor were printed at Agfa Graphics customer BS2i. JR’s installation covers the dome, the cupola, and the floor of the Pantheon. The visual on the floor was composed of more than 70 panels, which were printed on an Anapurna M2500 large-format inkjet printer from Agfa Graphics. Printed at the highest quality, all wishes of the artist were respected in reassembling his work.


The outside artwork will be exposed throughout the construction on the Pantheon’s upper parts, whereas the inside installation will remain until October 5th, 2014.
