Décollage, in art, is the opposite of collage; instead of an image being built up of all or parts of existing images, it is created by cutting, tearing away or otherwise removing, pieces of an original image.
Using the lacerated poster as an artistic intervention to critique the advertising technique of large-scale advertisements.
Decollage destroys the advertisement, but leaves its remnants on view for the public to contemplate.
The intention is to present artworks in the city of Paris anonymously.
Extract the defaced poster from its original context and to take it into areas of poetry, photography, or painting.
It is as if it starts in the middle of the situation, rather than at the beginning.
The French word "décollage" translates into English literally as "take-off" or "to become unglued" or "to become unstuck".
Prints from the Decollage Series can be ordered solely in writing, by telephone or by appointment.
