Jean-Vincent  Simonet, In Bloom
07.12–21.12.18

Jean-Vincent Simonet, In Bloom
6th December - 21st December 2018

Lausanne-based artist Jean-Vincent Simonet’s photographic practice pushes the poetics of chaos to the very limits, characterised by a penchant for sheer entropy and excess. In his first solo exhibition in London at Webber Gallery he will present his new project In Bloom. Part travel diary and part love letter to the cities of Tokyo and Osaka, In Bloom is a searing, hyper-visual journey into the heart of Japanese underground culture and an ode to the overwhelming experience of seeing a place with the eyes of a stranger for the first time. 

For Simonet, Japan has always had an aquatic, almost mythical status. His images – of which all are original analogue photographs – are transformed through experimental manipulations; metaphors for the slow process of feeling ingested by these fluid, mutating organisms. Printing his images onto plastic paper and sculptural resin so the ink never quite dries, Simonet uses water and chemicals, long exposure and torchlight to transform the surface of his prints, abstracting and blurring them as if the scenes are melting away. 

Exhibition in collaboration with Self Publish Be Happy

Preview: Thursday 6th of December, 6pm onwards.
