A performance artist and modern day explorer, Laurent Tixador strives to overcome the limits of his body and of his urban condition. His works is characterized by actions in which he puts himself to the test in extreme and off-the-wall situations. Explorations represent a form of studio in his work and he has thereby conducted a great many exploration performances. Through his “transitory architectures”, he builds temporary housing with the resources provided by the site in order to settle down in what at first seem uninhabitable areas. In 2013, he was recipient of the Prix COAL Art et Environnement. He is represented by Fabienne Leclerc’s In Situ gallery.
