Alban Richard

Activations and Performances

Alban Richard devel­ops in situ cho­reo­graph­ic work. In con­tem­por­ary art, in situ des­ig­nates an artist­ic meth­od or a work that takes into account the site on which it is installed. Work­ing in this type of site-spe­cif­ic approach, Alban Richard devises per­form­ances whose driv­ing prin­ciples are the cre­ation of move­ments and/or sounds in con­tinu­ous cycles over a long peri­od of time. Gen­er­ally staged on plinths or ped­es­tals, they take place in a vari­ety of set­tings, wheth­er parks, gar­dens, her­it­age places or museum spaces. The pub­lic is thus invited to exper­i­ence and pro­cess over time the visu­al and sens­ory rela­tion­ship it has with the works.
