Joëlle Allet’s heterogenous art is marked by two important elements: the context in which she displays is itself an object of subtle orchestration, while her works materialise at the nexus between art, crafts and design.
After winning the Manor Price 2010 of the Swiss canton Valais, Joëlle Allet displayed her first solo show and publication at the Museum of Arts in Sion, Switzerland. The catalogue “Bon Voyage” that accompanied the exhibition was not a typical publication that would exhibit already existing works photographed in their context. Instead of that, her interventions were shown as a collage between photographs and 3d renderings, giving the reader the possibility to go in a virtual 3d journey through the museum and see objects that were to be finished only in the night of the opening.
The collages printed on glossy paper were combined into monograph anaglyphs through a special rendering software and in close collaboration with the Swiss Society for Stereoscopy.
