SURGE 2012:

Olivier de Sagazan: Transfiguration

Sat 28 Jul 2012 | 7.30pm-8pm | £8/£6

Equally inspired by Francis Bacon and Samuel Beckett, French performer and sculptor Olivier De Sagazan uses clay and paint to perform acts of live sculpture in which his own face is the canvas. His work is concerned with deformity, transformation, and the unlocking of creative processes which occur when one is submerged in earth.

Transfiguration is his remarkable solo piece, which he will perform on Saturday 28th before being joined by Marie Cardinal on Sunday 29th for Hybridation.

The results of his festival-long multi-arts residency with emergent Scottish artists will also be presented as part of the SURGE Cabaret Club.
