Portrait of Xavier Le Roy

Xavier Le Roy began working as an artist in 1991, after finishing his studies in molecular biology at the University of Montpellier. Since 1994, he has been developing solo works: Self Unfinished (1998), Produit de Circonstances (1999), Giszelle (2001) in collaboration with Eszter Salamon, Le Sacre du Printemps (2007), Produit d’autres circonstances (2009) and Sans titre (2014). At the same time, he initiated projects exploring production and collaboration methods that constitute group work: E.X.T.E.N.S.I.O.N.S. (1999-2000), Project (2003) and 6 Mois 1 Lieu (2008), low pieces (2011). His works creates situations that question the spectator-performer relationships, inter alia, and attempts to transform or reconfigure dichotomies, such as: object/subject, animal/human, machine/human, nature/culture, public/private, shape/shapeless.
