Benjamin Seror

In Benjamin Seror’s (born Lyon, 1979) performances, where speech is the principal subject and tool, the artist often narrates long improvised stories inspired by a mix of phantoms of literature, art history and everyday adventures. The stories he tells often lead the audience far into the heart of the Inferno or to dancing all night long to the delicate sound of the Perfect Kiss by New Order. Also a musician, Seror plays different instruments, backing up his narratives with emotive songs that switch modes of language, underlining the complexity of what it can do.

Recently, he played Performances in ICA Philadelphia,Théâtre National de Chaillot, Paris, le Plateaux, Frac île de France, Bétonsalon, and Palais de Tokyo and particpate to the collectives exhibitions, Mindaugas, 11th Baltic Trienniale, This is not an art show either, Fabric el Coats, Barcelona, curated by David G.
