Through his “Dramagraphies” Michel LAGARDE does not seek to reproduce reality, on the contrary his aim is to “recreate an other reality”. His world is deeply marked by the theater since his self-portraits are stagings in their own rights, of which he is both the director but also the multiple characters. Far from being autobiographical, his skits appear as unique and autonomous compositions made from models, singular objects, costumes, and diverse and far-fetched sets. When asked if it is himself that he staged he replied: “It’s not really me that is staged in Dramagraphies, but rather the parts that I interpret as actor.
