“Some produce sketches, others collages. These are low-cost techniques and media that involve recovering, recycling and transforming what’s already there. Parts of the photos (re)appear elsewhere – a sign of the mobility of signs and images, of the possibility of revisiting them.” — Raphaël PirenneA comprehensive book on the Photo Collages of Boris Rebetez. Since more than 2 decades this oeuvre has accompanied the artist and serves him as a technique to explore our perception of landscape and composition. Based on found imagery from e.g. advertising and other printed media footage, Rebetez’s collages dissect with simple free-hand cuts our viewing habits. In collaboration with graphic designer Astrid Seme, a book has been created that not only reproduces Rebetez's works, but also continues the principle of collaging in the layout, creating new collages.
