This monograph on French-Algerian artist and performer Carole Douillard spans her entire work from the end of the 1990s and invites us to reflect on her performative and non-material practice, interrogating the forms and issues of contemporary performance. Douillard uses her body as a sculpture for minimal interventions in the space of the White Cube. Her presence, and that of the performers with whom she collaborates, is physically engaged in her work, which questions the place of the individual and the social body in private and public spheres. Situated on the edge of the spectacular, her work calls for a redefinition of the spectator, the space of performance and the power struggle between the contemplated object and the person contemplating it.
