L’Homme de Bessines

Fabrice Hyber(t) is the author in 1989 of "L'Homme de Bessines". These little green men, 86 cm high, installed on the town's water network, fountains spewing water through all body orifices, respond to a public order for street furniture and reflect the close link existing between the market gardener and the Marais Poitevin.
This internationally renowned artist living in Paris also created in 1991 the largest soap in the world entered in the Guinness World Records (22 tonnes molded in a truck bed). In 1995, he transformed the Museum of Modern Art in Paris into a “Hybermarket” and installed a professional hairdressing salon at the Center Georges Pompidou for the Feminin/Masculin exhibition of 1996.
