For the fifth exhibition we are devoting to the “saga” of the Lacéré Anonyme, this year we are exploring the theme of the Lettre Lacérée.
Words (in 1999) already reflected Villeglé’s taste for writing and its graphic design, Images (2001) was undeniably one of the most representative themes of the urban landscapes that the artist has traversed over the last fifty years, Sans lettres, sans figures (2003) was the closest exhibition to Abstract Painting in the classical sense of the term, and finally, Politiques revived all the great debates of French political history, without any bias.
Lettre lacérée is certainly the artist’s most famous series. “La Lettre lacérée. The typographic character pulls so much into it that its intermingling introduces us by its almost vibratory disappearance into the realm of the fortunately unreadable, of the elusive Mallarméan. These are originally posters of the pre-crisis neighborhood cinemas, theater or concert posters from the former Morris columns or the subway.” *
