For his new exhibition, the Orlinda Lavergne Gallery, based in Mulhouse in the heart of the 3 borders (Germany, France, Switzerland) between Basel capital of contemporary art, hosts the street artist CLET .
The exhibition, entitled « Le policier amoureux « will take place from 8 to 30 September 2016. Street artist among the most influential of his generation, CLET diverts road signs. His artworks are present in the streets of major cities around the world such as Paris , New York, London, Rome, Turin, Milan, Barcelona and also Berlin. Criticism of the cold-way communication of the road signs, CLET aims to humanize them. CLET gives them a new meaning and focus on creating an area of freedom, poetry and humor where urban space is governed by norms and rules. If interventions are ephemeral, the artist always takes care not to distort their primary function.
