Epakub, from the industrialist to the work of art

Epalia’rt when logistics meets contemporary art

Epalia, a major player in the recycling and management of pallets in France, has designed Epakub, a small corrugated cardboard cube designed and patented by Ip3 Concept. The subsidiary of the Suez Epalia group gives carte blanche to three contemporary artists to revisit its product in an exhibition called Epalia’rt.

« When the raw and industrial product Epakub becomes a work of art between the hands of artists ». This is the theme of the Epaliart’ exhibition, organised on Thursday 15 October 2015 at Galerie Kleber (Paris 16) under the sponsorship of Pierre Cornette de St-Cyr, auctioneer and President of the Palais de Tokyo. Present from left to right in the photo, Jan Lisman (digital artist and video maker), Cat Soubbotnik (author-photographer) and Yann Sciberras (painter) have the challenge of appropriating and revisiting the Epakub modular load carrier from Epalia.
