JR – Unframed
Words of the Images Festival Site – Unframed is a new urban project created for the city of Vevey, co-produced by the Images festival and the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne. It is a first in the career of JR: he has immersed himself in the collections of the Musée de l’Elysée.
Through his approach of reinterpretation and taking out of context, he has revisited certain works by Robert Capa, Gilles Caron, Helen Levitt and others. In putting up on the facades that now serve as picture rails, the city is transformed into a gigantic open-sky museum.
