Anonymous, Maison Rispe/The Rispe House

and Laurent Jacquy

In his weblog Les Beaux Dimanches Laurent Jacquy published a post about an outsider environment, named Maison Rispe (nov 14, 2011).

This site is located in the small community of Lardin Saint Lazare in the Dordogne area in France.

As Laurent remarks, the internet has no data about this environment and its creator. So quite probably Laurent and Yann are the first to publish about this one on the internet.

The site can be seen from the street, the Avenue de Rispe  and, as the first picture shows, the mailbox denotes that it bears the name Maison Rispe. The author of this site may have an Italian background, because some of the decorations include texts in Italian (that, by the way, contain comments about some social and political developments).

Some of the decorations have been nicely arranged into symetric patterns, like above composition of tin cans, with the flags of the countries of the European union.  Would it be relevant that the tins are directed downwards, standing with open lids, suggesting emptiness...

It would be nice to learn more about the author of this creative constructs. To be continued.
