"Jean-Biche is a multidisciplinary artist from Paris who grew up in the world of the Brussels underground: first as a DJ before trying his hand at performance, styling, make-up, graphic design and art direction... Today, he creates unique projects, collaborates with both Michele Lamy and Philippe Decouflé and performs all over the world (with Manko Cabaret or Fantasma Circus Erotica, among others).
He is currently resident DJ at Georges on the rooftops of the Centre Pompidou, hosts a monthly show on Kiosk Radio and runs his own cabaret Bas Nylon, a traveling troupe of multi-faceted artists for which he is the artistic & musical director". (Text: Jean Biche)

About the exhibition

Brice Dellsperger's moving image works are characterized by his passion for cinema, which the French artist uses as material for manipulation, reinterpretation, recreation and subversion. His play with the artificial, with imperfections, disturbances, loops and doppelgangers undermines the conventions of cinema and upsets the established relationships of author-viewer, subject-object, desire-representation, film and editing.

In his exhibition "Jalousies", he casts a playful glance through the jagged slats of cinema and shakes up its genre and gender boundaries. Two new video works, one of which was shot at the Dortmunder Kunstverein, complement the 'Body Double' series, which the artist has been developing since 1995 and already includes 40 short films. With this series, Dellsperger explores and subverts the media language of cinema by meticulously recreating iconic film sequences from cinema history, often as low-budget films with altered gender identities. The result is a celebration of queer cinema, camper aesthetics and an ironic look at social roles.

Brice Dellsperger was born in Cannes in 1972 and lives in Paris. Jalousies is the artist's first comprehensive institutional solo exhibition in Germany.
