Performance.

For his existential performative series, Transfiguration, which debuted in 1999, de Sagazan applies layers of clay and paint to his face and body to transform, disfigure and dismantle himself, revealing an animalistic human seeking to break away from the physical world. Disquieting and deeply moving, this performance breaks down the boundaries between the physical, intellectual and spiritual dimensions.

Olivier de Sagazan will host a conference on his work Monday, October 17 from noon to 1:30 pm at La Sala Rossa. Open to all, free entry.
