Summary :
Michel JOURNIAC created body art. For him, the body is only encountered through rituals that he uses to question, reveal or expose, and which are always a warning to those in power and a vindication of the rights of outcasts. The aim of Michel JOURNIAC's actions is to assert that there is no other reality than that of the socialized body, leaving it to the audience to draw their own social, political or existential conclusions". (In François PLUCHART - L'Art Corporel 1983 - published by Limage 2 ). Action by Michel JOURNIAC, photography by Carole ROSSOPOULOS, editing by Gérard CARAISCHI and Michel JOURNIAC. Actors in 1969 : Pierre RESTANY and Catherine MILLET. Actors in 1975 : Thierry GUICHARD, Jean Luc MOULENE, François PLUCHART, Claude VUILLIER. In "Messe pour un corps", Michel JOURNIAC organizes a real religious service and makes the participants receive communion with a black pudding made from his own blood.
