Performance

Expérience sous surveillance - la sécurité du bonheur

Artist biography

In 1993, Luc Boisclair founded Atelier dell?arte, a multidisciplinary center that he would lead for five years. In 1998, he began producing his own performances. He creates situations in which the audience becomes an object in a scene, a live model for a photograph, a drawing, or a camera shot.  These situations destabilize the audience, offering a different dynamic than the traditional performance that was expected.

Project approach

Being blindfolded gives the feeling of being in the street without knowing who is looking at you, observing you, or even filming you. Your reactions are momentarily put under observation while you become public property. You are exposed, and in so being, your senses and sensations are engaged: touch, hearing, smell, the wind on your skin. At the same time, it is the antithesis of what surveillance is expected to be: participants in this performance will be removed from the system for a few minutes. They will be blindfolded, observed, monitored and judged by passersby. This experience allows the participant both to lose themself in the crowd, to be observed, surveilled, and labelled, though their identity always remains their own.
