Jean Biche, MVTATIONS
Brussels based performance artist Jean Biche performed a torturous ritual of costume and dance on the BLACK stage at RA. From naked to fully dressed, from liberation to restriction and back. Performing in his own exquisite corsetry and full body costume, Jean enacted a series of states as he assumed layer upon layer of clothing on his pale form. Tying on impossibly high fetish stilettos, he danced a delicate, dangerous ballet around the small platform, before reappearing for his bow once again undressed, returning to his original state. Throughout the performance, videos showed past acts of his work, showing a through line of his symbolism and the strength of his personal aesthetic.
