  • Présentation
  • Originally trained as a biologist, Olivier de Sagazan turned to painting and sculpting with the ever-present idea of questioning organic life: how can one create a sculpture that by its very existence arouses the feeling of a presence? From his passion to give life to matter came the idea for him to, alone in his studio, cover his own body with clay in order to observe the resulting “object”: one that was externally made of inert matter and animated from the inside by a living body. This experiment gave rise to the creation of a solo (Transfiguration) in which we see a civil servant in a suit and tie gradually disfiguring himself with clay into a kind of monster. This half man, half beast is searching, beneath all his masks, for something that gives meaning to his quest.
  • We find a similar process of transformation applied to the 6 dancers in his creation Ainsi Sois Moi, but here it is the social relations which will be the origin for the transformations on the body and the attitudes of the characters. Politicians, demonstrators, priests, scientists, prisoners, patients; are all undergoing transformations that are emerging from the position they occupy in society. An underlying cause then appears; each one of them holds a conflict between two entities: a puppet and a puppeteer.
