In a future where humanity is gradually losing its place on the planet, does art have any meaning as a message or merely as an artifact? The new groundbreaking cross-media performance by the artist JfR searches for analysable patterns – and does so by means of art.
Jean-François Réveillard aka JfR (Engelberg, Switzerland) likes to define himself as a cross-media picture maker. His work always revolves around a central theme with strong statements. He is influenced by philosophy and modern life. His creations use the latest techniques, but always remain grounded.
Jf Réveillard applied new technologies to his works early in the 1980s and launched one of the first European WebTv and digital TV studios in 1997.
JfR poses the question of the traces that our existence and civilizations will leave behind. He refers to the challenge and role of art to guarantee permanence and sustainability. Does art have any meaning as a message or merely as an artifact in a future in which man is gradually losing his place on the planet?
