José Luis Landet’s work manifests itself as a meeting point in which various modes of operation and assimilation of cultural processes crossed by social, political and ideological actions take place. Returning to everyday images such as paintings, photographs, letters, postcards, super 8 films, slides, texts, magazines and books loaded with memory, time and use, Landet constructs new material and conceptual objects based on a determined analysis, registration and classification. Filing, cutting, breaking, covering, falsifying, immersing, fragmenting, simulating, taking out of the shadows and putting their own are transformed for the artist into poetic actions.
