RAPHAËLLE DE GROOT, montréal

 Performance tuesday may 12, 7m

 

"Alongside this interest in the trace of things and the universe of others, I develop “performative” exercises that turn others’ gaze back onto me, a procedure that turns attention back to the artist’s work, to the artist grappling with the creative process. Through various physical and situational constraints—obstructed vision, restrictive wear, covering up the face—I strive to work outside the purview of vision, in “un-mastery”, such as to instill a state of dispossession, of loss: loss of one’s bearings, loss of control, loss of self-image." www.pavilionprojects.com/offbnlmtl/
