With an obsession for text, communication & poetry, Delphine Perrot deploys techniques used in common commercial advertising (historical and typographical) to re-appropriate well-known and iconic slogans and messages in unexpected situations through surprising, entertaining, and opening new possibilities and performances. These works and messages manifest themselves in different contexts and diverse places, often being poetical and whimsical. The viewer is asked to look at things afresh, draw our attention to them, and in some cases, viewers are invited to change their meanings.
