Yves Musard

France/United States

Defining himself as a “movement artist” Yves’ movement performance develops the notion of an itinerary on the spot in a sort of imbricated time and space. He learns to isolate a movement and engage its spatial visit from within. Following a line of least resistance where the movement is self pro-pulsed into the air.

Yves Musard collaborates with numerous artists and institutions, among them most recently the Collection Lambert in Avignon, The gallery Campagne-Premiere in Berlin and now the Rio Bravo Fine Arts in T or C, New Mexico.

Yves lives in Truth and Consequences, New Mexico and Marseille, France.
