BSA Special Feature: Thierry Mandon Living Outside

We dedicate this Friday’s edition of BSA Film Friday to French performance and conceptual artist Thierry Mandon. Mr. Mandon conveys his art through performances and installations by using himself as the subject of his compositions, his tableaus of unremarkable domesticity exposed publicly.

Video and photography open the door to the work with the rest of the world as only a handful of people are present while he dangles himself from abandoned buildings or performs an act of solitude openly on the streets. Day-to-day is elevated – the mundane activities of living reframed as sublime acts. Recontextualized, these ordinary moments spawn a feeling of performance, implicating you in the scene.
