Georges Mathieu, Homage to General Hideyoshi, (1957)
Performance view
Mathieu was the first western artist to stage live action paintings as a performance before a viewing public and as the subject of photography. He executed his monumental paintings in historical costume to reinforce the dramatic effect. Mathieu claimed that the activity of painting needed to be freed up and transformed though “speed in execution” to allow it to be spontaneous, direct and uninhibited by the past. His emphasis on improvisation was an attempt to reverse the order in relationship between sign and meaning: “The work of art becomes a geometric point of interrogations. Instead of the reduction of the cosmos to the dimensions of man, the work of art is nothing more than an opening out into the cosmos.”
-Georges Mathieu, Toward a new Convergence in Art, Thought and Science, (1960)

Image from Vsevold Meyerhold, Biomechanics Workshop, 1920 The actors acting in his productions employed a particularly physical method developed by Meyerhold himself which is known as Biomechanics.This technique consisted in a series of exercised that helped the actor release emotional potential through movement. Gerald Raugin in his article “Bodies, Things, and Social Machines” descibes biomechanics as follows:

" Contrary to the psychology of the plot and to an empathetic audience, the core components of biomechanics were the rhythm of language and the rhythm of physical movement, postures and gestures arising from these rhythms, coordinating the movement of the body and bodies with one another. The development of the plot was not to come from “within”, from the psyche or mind, but rather “from outside”, through the movement of the body in space. These components were created through an economy of means of expression, control of bodies and gestures, precision and tempo of movement, speed of reaction and improvisation. Meyerhold’s acting school was not merely a school for gymnastics and acrobatics, but rather attempted to bring the actors to calculate and coordinate their movements before that and beyond it, to organize their material, to organize the body.” →
