Sylvain Souklaye (FR/US)
Sylvain Souklaye is a Brooklyn-based French multimodal artist. He is working at the intersection of live performance, sound art, performative installation and social research. Sylvain Souklaye is interested in sampling intimacies about people who don’t belong to a determinate identity, gender, class, colour or nationality. Self-taught, he began performing with vandalism in Lyon, France and then intimate happenings, radio experimentation and action poetry. He later developed digital art installations using field recording techniques as a narrative layer while pursuing his writer’s path. His methods characteristically involve intense physical acts as well as the use of unsettling intimacy.
