Synopsis

Figure essentiel du Nouveau Ralisme, Jacques Villegl compte parmi les artistes majeurs du groupe constitu par Pierre Restany en 1960.
Sur un mode dappropriation du rel, Jacques Villegl na de cesse depuis cinquante ans, de prlever de leur contexte urbain toutes sortes daffiches lacres. Des affiches quil regarde comme les tableaux dun monde qui se raconte au prsent.
Luvre considrable quil a constitue se prsente comme une immense collection des faits et gestes de la ville. Vritable mmoire dune socit en perptuelle mutation, son uvre est riche dune iconographie nourrie par le dveloppement de la technique et de lart de laffiche.

A key figure in Nouveau Ralisme, Jacques Villegl is one of the major artists in the group formed by Pierre Restany in 1960.
Over a period of 50 years Jacques Villegl has used a method of appropriating reality by taking all sorts of ripped or lacerated posters from their urban context. To him, such posters are the equivalent of paintings representing how the world sees itself in the present.
The significant body of work he has put together over the years is presented as a vast collection of city life, the collective memory of a society that is constantly changing. His work is full of an iconography fed by developing technique and poster art.
