Since the late 80s, swiss artist Daniele Buetti (born in 1956) works with the signs and codes of our surrounding which is dominated by brands.
He became famous with his manipulations of photographs taken from lifestyle and fashion magazines. "Does Time Dance with Memories" shows new photographs and lightboxes dealing with these themes. Names of multinational fashion companies like Nike or Boss, as well as famous names of fashion designers like Armani, Gucci, Chanel etc. Daniele Buetti scribbles them into the skin of supermodels. The scribbled brands remember at tatoos brandings,abscesses or scars and let the represented beauties lose their unguilty appearing spotless.
The private adoption of the public images shows the expose and
vulnerability of the models, but appears on the other hand ironic and
rises the beauty for the viewer, because the models become something
away from their perfection.publishing
With the use of advertising subjects from the world of modern lifestyle,
Daniele Buetti subjects the consumer society which is dominated by
Fashion and Media Industry.
