José Man Lius

Paris, France

As a video artist, performer, photographer and designer from the French West Indies, José Man Lius questions the construction of identity, the assimilation of history and the place of the individual in an interconnected, globalized world. His roots in the Caribbean extend his investigations into aspects of “métissage” and cultural interaction through a series of artistic experiments and exploratory creative gestures.

In a voluntarily unstructured space, the intersection of his films, photos, performances, sculptures and objects creates a matrix of phenomenological experience. Here we are invited to explore the components and puzzle of this cultural and spiritual brew, questioning the links that can weave together art, nature, intangible heritage, shamanic phenomena, and the numerous invisible forces that influence and change our perceptions.
