‘Quelques sequences d’art sans talent’ (‘Some sequences of untalented art’) was completely recorded at the studios of the Belgian-French network RTBF, as an edition of the program Vidéographie(s)’ that focused on video art during the 1976 to 1986 period. Lizène announces himself as the “artist of mediocrity and the unimportant” and he wholesales in burlesque performances, gratuitous visual effects and levities beyond current definitions of ‘good’ or ‘bad’ taste. Nothing is absolute or sacred. Like a clown, Lizène subverts and ridicules predominant norms and traditions, precisely to dismantle their inconsistency and sterility. Or to put it in one of his infamous quotes: “vive la vasectomie!”.
