More packaging-related sculptures by Bernard Bazile: Les Royco et Poulain
The satirical version of these microcosms was Bernard Bazile’s Royco et Poulain (1988), human-height reproductions of boxes containing powdered mixes for soups or chocolate drinks, the basic food of the bachelor (the solitary individual) containing the furniture from the artist’s apartment (the creator’s world), also enlarged to a scale of 1 .5: 1 .

Not many photos of these sculptures to be found online. Finally found one of the “Royco” sculptures in this video below from a 2009 exhibition at The Magasin: Espèces d’espace.
