Jean-Pierre Vorlet's images are everywhere, taken all over the world but establishing common ground, transferable and translatable. In spite of a snatch of Italian or a word or two in French, the defaced posters communicate through colour and fragmented graphics. Huge pieces of letters or numerals appear but become artifacts themselves, unearthed shards of meaning in a new multilayered context. The collective messaging of these photographs demands that the spectator walk alongside the posters, perhaps even daring to reach up and tear off a piece. Challenging the idea of what makes art public or private, Vorlet is often known to exhibit his art outside exposed to the elements as the posters were that he salvaged. His posters come from Geneva, Zurich, New York, Naples and Paris. For Vorlet, in the heart of the city, art is closer to the everyday life. He thinks that reality holds aesthetic qualities within itself, and that his job is simply to reveal them.
