Façons contre façons, protocol, performance, 2018

Performers are asked to spend time and to interact with the artist for an extended period of time. During these moments they are observing the artist and learning his non-verbal language (movements, attitudes, gestures, mimics...)

During the presentation of the work, the performers re-act the body language of the artist and overlap it on their own normal actions.

The work is announced but not pointed out, creating a circulation of gaze among the public, paying attention to the usually unoticed behaviour of the artist and others persons of the audience.

(Thanks to Lola Martins-Coignus and Shankar Lestréhan for these pictures and the first activation of the work during the exhibition On a bien accroché)
