The artistic work of Jan Vormann is placed in an alternative reality, where everything is possible. Through limitless imaginary, he assumes a provocative role, questioning what he observes around him from an artistic, political or from a merely experimental point of view. To achieve this provocation, he takes out of context regular objects, transforming them, giving them a new life, as if it was an oneiric world: as an act of illusionism. While the works of Jan Vormann share certain characteristics between each other, particularly the surreal character, each of them proposes a different discourse, a critical position expressed as a metaphor or as a simple questioning of the possible. Vormann assumes current and contingent concerns, distinguishing his position while facing them, offering an ironic and complex analysis of the reality that surrounds him. With his work he seeks to rescue a concrete reality, whether it is the laws of physics, observations of nature or the contemporary society itself. In order to achieve an empathic relationship with the spectator, the artist creates a dialogue strategy with the receptors consisting in showing them an illusionism, a scene that hypnotize them by being impossible and surreal. This magical scene is the bridge between the viewer and the artists’ position facing a real context.
