Olivier de Sagazan, a biologist by training, began painting and sculpting with the pervasive idea of questioning organic life.

His passion for breathing life into matter gave him the idea of covering his body with clay in order to observe the emerging "object". This experiment resulted in the solo Transfiguration, in which we see the transformation of a man. On stage, the created lusus naturaestarts looking for its own true identity under the masks. The performance takes the audience on a fascinating journey into the uncanny soul of the artist. It produces a visually rich experience that gives new meaning to life and offers a mesmerizing, at times disturbing and flabbergasted insight into an alternative self-image that is completely uninhibited.

Olivier de Sagazan is a French artist, painter, sculptor and performer. His work focuses on building layers of clay on his own body and face, erasing his own identity and transforming it into a living sculpture. His most famous performance, Transfiguration (1998), has been shown in more than 300 performances in 25 different countries.
