Art Orienté Objet
1991 · France
Marion Laval-Jantet & Benoît Mangin Duo formed in 1991 in Paris
Marion Laval-Jeantet and Benoît Mangin came together in 1991 to form Art Orienté Objet. In a collaboration that resembles that between a playwright and a stage director who are in constant dialogue (we can see them as artist and “artistic-output-director”), they are fascinated by the sciences of life in general and of behavior in particular–from ethology to trans-cultural psychiatry. During the last fifteen years, they have put forth several poetic and surprising projects that have resulted from their experimentations and that reveal our behaviors as we face existence and the environment. Their works take on various aesthetic forms (installations, objects, videos, and/or photographs) in which we find a familiar animal presence and a staging of their own existence.
