Pierre Leguillon transforms the format and grammar of a 35mm slide projector lecture into a performance. In Non-Happening: After Ad Reinhardt (2011) Leguillon presents 350 historical slides that were used in performance lectures by New York abstract painter Ad Reinhardt. This performance includes an in-conversation about the work of Reinhardt with a special guest.

Pierre Leguillon
(* 1969, France) has worked as a curator and critic; publishing the journal Sommaire between 1991 and 1996, and creating projects for magazines such as the Journal des Arts, Art Press, and Purple. In 1993 Leguillon began to use his own photographs, taken while traveling or visiting exhibitions, to develop him own practice. These original works took the form of slideshows, or - as Leguillon called them - "Diaporamas" transforming theses slideshow "forms" into a precise, poetic, inspiring and funny performance piece. Exhibitions include Diane Arbus, a Printed Retrospective, 1960-1971; La Promesse de l'écran - an ongoing series of projection performances, including films that the artist believes are "dedicated to the peripheral"; a solo show of Leguillon's oeuvre opened in Mamco, Geneva. Leguillon's most recent project was a hour-long performance and installation commissioned by Musée de la Danse in Rennes (dir. Boris Charmatz), consisting of a collection of 400 images related to movement and dance displayed in aluminum boxes, installed and re-installed through the performance.
