After destroying a large number of his lyrical abstraction paintings, Jean Dupuy left Paris for New York in 1967. Here he produced an iconic work, "Heart Beats Dust: Cône Pyramide", a sculpture made of dust animated by the heartbeats of the viewers, together with numerous collective performances, developing an experimental practice focused on the interaction between art and technology. On his return to France in 1984, where he devoted himself even more to his explorations of the anagram and wrote his first book, the artist created objects and large anagrammatic paintings. During this session, Jean Dupuy presents his work with assistance from the artist Christian Xatrec, the curator of the exhibition, and proposes a completely new performance.
"In Vivo" is 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.
