For his performance, titled ? / ?, Julien Bismuth is presenting a piece that follows from his recent projects, including the performance ? L comme litote?, shown in Lyon in December 2008. ? / ? is structured around a series of interrupted gestures and a sequence of actions, performed by actors, and interacting with a monologue, that is repeated several times. Various cuts and montages, but also different articulation of the actors produce variations of the original text.The artist is part of the action, but more as an object than as a performer; as such, he is put into different positions by the other actors.
In addition, a series of drawings by Bismuth will also be presented: sketches of objects, and actions that he has accumulated over the years,which allow an insight of his works? evolution.
Julien Bismuth (born in Paris 1973) lives and works in New York.
