Fabrice Cazenave - Drawing under hypnosis

26 July 2011


French artist Fabrice Cazenave (1975) has now undertaken a fascinating project for which he has been searching for a willing accomplice. Parisian hypnotherapist Jean-Francois Hirsch recently agreed to take the artist into a hypnotic trance to open up a new area of exploration. Cazenave has extensively drawn 'blind' with his eyes closed, expressing particular experiences and their relation to the inner body through marks on paper, using his touch to both map the space and chose the hardness or softness of pencil to use. Here Cazenave goes even deeper, removing himself yet further from the controlling influence of both gaze and premeditation. You can find out more about the artist, watch footage from the sessions and see the extraordinary results here.
