"Struggle(s)" april - june 2012

Stéfane Perraud, born in 1975 in France, lives and works in Montreuil.

Stéfane Perraud studied at the ENSAD and specialized in multimedia and scenography. As an artist he works in Paris where he creates scenes for theatre, performances and ballet’s stages. Perraud’s approach is focused in the notion of movement (Amoebe, Simulte & Modifié series, Solar, Blind Crash, Ecosystème).  Even more, the narrative takes a central part in his works, neither inert nor petrified, but with a sensibility to displacement that introduces the possibility of a dynamic position for the viewer whose look is itself in motion. Thus, two movements are confronted: the device’s one and the viewer’s one. With this theme may be found the link between his installations and his performances works. In a way, his performances Pas du tout and Temps reel are exploring a communication above verbal language, staging the body which is physically linked to the technical device through a cell system. The performance becomes an exchange between a device and a viewer, without one being more important than the other. A theme though is never faded in his oeuvre: disaster whether, according to the works, is about anticipating or having premonition of.
