Jean-Vincent Simonet [ 1991 - Present ]

Follow

 

Jean-Vincent Simonet (b. 1991) graduated from École cantonale d’art de Lausanne in 2014. His practice fuses analogue images, digital techniques, collage, montage, sculpture and painting with remarkable fluidity. His work is permeated by a sense of overload and exuberance and characterised by a penchant for sheer entropy.

Body and decor, nature and artifice, poses and emotions collide and merge into the poetics of excess that forms the basis of the artist’s research. His practice pushes the poetics of chaos to the very limits of the photographic medium.

Simonet is based in Paris and Zurich where he juggles between commissioned photography, editorial and personal explorations.
