Mise En Scene – Francis Alÿs

A Personal Repertoire of Possible Behaviour While Walking the Streets in London Town 2005 Francis Alÿs born 1959 Purchased 2006

I came across Alÿs work during the presentation for this project. He was introduced under the ‘intervention space’ heading and I ant heard of this type of art before. Finding this piece by him was encouraging as I had already written down a list of adjectives for light. I was inspired but his layout of the piece but also the viewer participation aspect.

What I also like about it is the story telling aspect, all seven of the panels he made for this series tells a story of his walk through London and the journey he went on and what he encountered. Again this is something out of my comfort zone but I am enjoying thinking about it and putting it into relation of my own practice.
