Michel Journiac is the founder of the 1960s and 1970s Body Art movement in France. During these years, many artists started to use the human body as their material. Accordingly, this artist used his own body to perform rituals which he documented through photography. It was through these photographic works, and his sculptural pieces, that Michel Journiac, a communist and gay man, attacked society’s stereotypes, defended those who existed outside of daily society, and challenged traditional moral values.
