For more than twenty years, the work of Alexandre Périgot (born 1959 in Paris, lives and works in Bastia and Paris) has been investigating the mechanisms of starification and spectacularization. His installations often feature performance acts, and are inspired by cinema, architecture, performing arts, sports, video games or the media.
He participated in the 2003 Venice Biennale, 2008 Istanbul Biennale, 2010 Belleville Biennale and the 2013 Lodz Biennale. His projects La Maison d'Elvis (2005-), La Maison de Dalida (2000-), La Maison du Fada (2005-), Radiopopey (2002-), Fanclubbing (1999-), Blondasses (2002-) and Dumbodélire (2013-) were exhibited in international museums and art centers, such as Centre Pompidou (Paris), MAMCO (Geneva), Museum of Contemporary Art in Marseille, Glasgow Tramway, Cneai (Pantin), Arsenal (Bialystok), Minneapolis Institute of Art and La Criée (Rennes).
