The short career of Bas Jan Ader, a legendary figure of the 1970s, was marked by a few works, photographs and filmed performances, in which he is both the subject and an object of protocols that examine the physical characteristics of the world – weight – as well as emotions – sadness – in an aesthetic similar to early video art.
