> AUX ABOIS  

On the 30th of March 2014, like a dog who senses danger and expresses it by barking, Olivier de Sagazan barked for 7 hours to “awaken the consciences” against the dangers of the Front National. Here in front of the polling station for the European elections, the police will quickly come to interrogate him …“At 18pm, the polling stations close. Despite the difficulty, the artist reiterated this act two more times (in front of the Basse Sous Marine de Saint Nazaire, and after in the square of La Défense in Paris. More informations

 

> LE DICTATOR

Inspired by François Sureau and his article in Le Monde “It is the citizen who is intimidated, and not the delinquent”, Olivier de Sagazan uses the exact words of President Macron in front of the yellow vests, while transforming his face, then the violence contained in this speech then jumps out at our face.

Frankenstein is in front of his mirror. In a fantastic duo between the puppeteer and his creature, the identities are muddled, ultimately between the creator and his puppet. Which one, then, animates the other ?

“Words seek a mouth to enter into.”- Beckett
“Dans Lenfermoi, tel un rat de laboratoire pris au piège dans une roue d’acier, Sagazan se défait des mots, qui jaillissent de ses postures et de ses courses périlleuses conditionnées par la machine qui l’enferme. Quand Tzara proclame: “La pensée se fait dans la bouche”, il souligne la fonction créatrice de la parole, son caractère inné, par opposition au discours logique préconstruit. Chez Sagazan, l’oeuvre s’incarne, la chair expulse le verbe. Le texte écrit disparaît, pour laisser place à l’improvisation. La question de la Présence devient le sujet essentiel. Laisser venir, un maître mot !” – Irène Filiberti

>DETOURNEMENT ARTISTIQUE
Marcel Duchamp coined the term readymade in 1915 to ask : What is art ?
Here, Olivier de Sagazan hijacks an artistic exhibition. This diversion, a kind of double ready-made, will be done by means of written letters:[Lettre 1][Lettre 2][Lettre 3.

> CIRCULATION-EXTRA-CORPORELLE,   LE LIEU UNIQUE, NANTES (Dans le cadre du colloque : La généalogie de la sensibilité)

After placing a syringe in one of his veins, Olivier de Sagazan drew his blood in a bowl and he proceeded to cover his face with it.  He then took multiple prints of his face with different sheets of paper, as an allusion to the famous veil of Veronique. This event took place at the end of a symposium on the issue of sensitivity in art, philosophy and sciences.
