A Balsy Afternoon
A Balsy Afternoon was a celebration of the traditional French ball game – petanque. A popular past time played amongst men in the squares of Provence – the game allows the winners to kiss fanny. For her iteration, Ingrid Berthon-Moine have replaced the wooden balls with soft leather coated objet.
The event also marked the end of Berthon Moine’s project, You Tear Us.
