Nicolas Bailleul — Visual artist




2015Installation, Performance, Edition

The Strasbourg association Calme Gutenberg denounces the nocturnal disturbances caused by drunken passers-by who shout, sing, vomit, and engage in fights in the streets. I became interested in these nocturnal filmmakers, who remain hidden and observe with quasi-obsession every movement, dialogue, and disturbing chant. Through a series of performances, I occupied the space of the street in an attempt to reverse the plunging and threatening gaze by positioning myself as the subject of one of their videos.
