The details (from wikipedia)


Bibi (born February 23, 1964 in Tours, France) is a French artist. His civil name is Fabrice Cahoreau. He is living and working in the South of France. He is known for his art installations in urban spaces using everyday plastic objects.

Artistic style

Since 1992, by using daily life objects made of plastic, Bibi searches for the hidden forms – animal or anthropomorphous – which the designers of these objects had in the back of their minds. Light has proved particularly helpful in revealing those forms to him. As such, in order to give plastic the place it deserves - namely the 6th element – he has fought especially hard against two universally distributed icons : the polyethylene container and the traffic cone. His universe is inspired by Jacques Yves Bruel, Niki de Saint Phalle, Malcolm McLaren, Norman McLaren, Dieric Bouts, the Ancient Egypt and Les Wampas.

Bibi has performed hundreds of art installations and performances in public spaces (Moscow, Sydney, Singapore, Wirksworth (UK), Paris, Lyon, Bordeaux, Nîmes, Avignon) : the squat facade 59 rue de Rivoli in Paris with an evolutive installation from 2001 to 2004, The Fish Ball exhibited in Docks 76 in Rouen since 2009 and The Fish Fountain (Festival of Lights of Lyon, Place des Jacobins, Lyon 2008).

In 2001, he creates the MEEA (Movement for the Extermination of Endangered Animals) and tackles hunting with derision. In 2010, he designs The Bibigloo (contraction of Bibi and igloo). The Bibigloo is both a work of land art, design, light source and a plastic art installation.
