Jean-Baptiste Ganne or L’arte di Disoccuparsi

by Maurice Fréchuret

Jean-Baptiste Ganne’s body of work harbors clear political messages all while spurning ideologies. Graffiti spill straight from the city streets onto the walls of exhibition galleries without losing their rebellious charge. A Roma woman’s headscarf twirling through space, Gypsy music brightly invading a castle cellar, and handmade shield-books are fitting responses to the discriminations and attacks from a world that is bent on getting older.
