Yves Musard, based in New York City, is a movement artist whose life’s work focuses on site specific performances and spatial investigations, inside and outside museums and galleries, exploring, responding and interacting with pathways, communities or situations. Yves works as a solo artist often includes collaboration with musicians and other artists. His unique approach to movement in the surrounding space generates a sense of place, details and people. His primary interest is on space as the ‘room’ that holds the commonness of all people.
Musard’s working tools includes multi-media documentation of performance of site specific environments interwoven with live performance, His archive material, mapping his international performance trajectory, has been published and included in numerous independent films including ‘The Dia’ commissioned The Man Who Believed He Could Move, (1988) and English Promenade / La Promenade in the Dan Graham Roof Top Urban Park Project, (1991-1992). The French Cinematheque created a film montage of his dance history (1982 onward).
