Old Works / New Bottles

Jeroen Jongeleen's sticker and graffiti actions counter the standardized and commercialized inner-city spaces with subtle interventions. Under the label 'Influenza' - referring to its potential effect as uninvited distorted of the common, creating an alias for the maker at the same time - Jongeleen continuously develops new signs, figures and texts. He often makes direct reference to the hegemony of architectural structures and public advertising displays, shifts or supplements their visual codes.
Jeroen Jongeleen grasps his work not only as an activist strategy, but also as an examination of the possibilities of artistic expression in public space.
