Christian Bujold’s work explores the relationship between bodies, spaces, and contexts. Through different strategies of incarnation, dissimulation, interrelation, and responsiveness, he seeks to engage participants in instinctive and somatic experiences. The performances unfold without scripts, as the outcome is determined by the various relationships being engaged. Bujold’s practice explores themes such as the disappearance or evanescence of the mind and body, and his capacity to act upon his environment. The artist’s actions question everyday behaviours in order to explore their psychological roots. He engages with notions of effort, endurance, and labour to execute given tasks, thereby jeopardizing the idea of control.
Christian Bujold is a performance artist based in Montréal. He is an administrator for the artist-run centre DARE DARE, and sits on the Board of Directors for VIVA! Art Action, an international performance art festival based in Montréal. His practice includes traveling and working with artists from various fields. He completed his Masters degree at Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in 2011.
