In his performances Brazilian artist Michel Groisman extends his body with self-constructed machines, which intensify the movements of his body. About “Weaveair / Tear” from 2000/01 (duration: 1h 30 min) he writes: “The laser beam that comes out of my mouth is reflected in the mirrors on my body, producing geometric forms. The intensity of the ambient lighting slowly oscillates between clarity and darkness. In the apex of clarity the public sees only my body and in darkness, only the geometric forms.”
All pictures and videos via the artist’s website and his YouTube channel. I especially love his performance “Transference” from 1999. More about Groisman on culturebase.net.
