Mas, Jean


(1946 ~ )

As stated by Pierre Restany, through the various facets of his work, the artist Jean Mas appears to be synthesizing the spirit of L’École de Nice. Mas was born in Nice, and he joined L’École de Nice and the Fluxus movement in 1973. He gained artistic recognition thanks to the production of a distinctive object: la Cage à Mouche (the Fly Cage). La Cage à Mouche, an essential vehicle of expression for the artist, is seen as an individual mythology within the framework of an attitude of art. Artist of ‘the signifier,’ he developed a prolific artistic matter, including his signature performance ‘PerforMas.’ His artistic productions revolve around three main areas: plastic, scenic, and visual- literary expression., Throughout the 1990s, Jean Mas’ works could be seen in a number of galleries in Nice and at the Windsor Hotel. Jean Mas keeps the flame of the L’École de Nice alive, and also the memory of his glorious predecessors who continue to make their tribute through his works and artistic gestures, books and performances.
