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.
The series of original prints presented in this exhibition were produced between 2019 and 2022 and mix photography and experimental printing techniques giving the resulting images a distinctly painterly quality, an aspect the artist is increasingly keen to convey.
Simonet is based in Paris and Zurich where he juggles between commissioned photography, editorial and personal explorations.
