May 12 / June 23 2012 - Backslash Gallery
The Backslash Gallery presents until June 23, Eidolon, the last solo show of RERO, graffiste, writer, street-artist, who tends to conceptual art.
To summarize the work of RERO, we can take the quotation from Jean-Michel Basquiat "I cross out words so you will see them more - the fact that they are obscured makes you want to read them." Indeed, inspired by his eldest RERO cross out the words, words he writes in VERDANA typo, very readable on the screen. And across an acronym that appears regularly in his works: WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get), according to the principle of intuitive interface that is supposed to show on the computer the final result in print but which is impossible to obtain, RERO questions the visual codes, intellectual property, our relationship to the image and excessive advertising.
Eidolon, in Greek means the image is seen as if it was the same thing, then it is only a double, it is a bearer of visual illusion, and it is this illusion of the image RERO highlights in his work.
Stop being lulled into the illusion and the virtual and go see in real the works of RERO who invested the space of the gallery as if it was an urban wasteland.
