The sensitive experience of space is a central factor in the rich, unclassifiable work of the German artist Klaus Rinke. In 1969, his preoccupations with volume and the passing of time led him to use his own body in his artistic work. He performs actions called "demonstrations", recorded in a series of photographs in which his body and postures compose a repertory of simple, rigorous signs: measuring tools to sound out the limits of space, time and body. Like Instrumentarium, a monumental installation set up in the Forum of the Centre Pompidou in 1985, Klaus Rinke's works are all instruments for accessing the simultaneously physical and philosophical aspect of his thinking.
"In Vivo" is a cycle devoted to performance through the participation of an artist present in the Centre Pompidou contemporary collections, who is invited to talk about his/her work, and/or give a performance.
