Infraduction

Fluxus artist Robert Filliou and Kantor engage in a language game. The latter forges and then undoes the paternal bond and morphs into an extra-terrestrial. A triptych of performance art: mentor and disciple, father and son, and parallel worlds. In his time-based process, Kantor tips his hat to the artist’s matrix of conceptual art, play acting and popular culture.
