Interactive video window installation –  13 rue Sainte-Catherine
Part of Performatik

Double meanings, humour and crossing borders are characteristic of the work of visual artist Benoît Félix. During Performatik he shows seven video performances. In them he plays the role of someone who makes or draws something; he then shows how the object or drawing goes its own way, independently of the creator.

Benoît Félix (1969) studied Lacanian psychoanalysis after graduating with an art degree in Brussels. He worked in psychiatric centres with children and adults. That had an influence on his own work, especially on his research into ‘language’, ‘body’ and ‘image’ and how these three registers can be articulated.
