Ulysse Bordarias

My work focuses on different ways of moving: the journey across a given territory, the mental shift that occurs when we understand or discover something. I work from elements drawn from my personal history, trips, books, as well as from an experimental process connected with the studio.

We perceive every situation at several levels: every emotion is a mix of sensations, informations, reflections, etc. I am trying to find the pictorial equivalent of these combined feelings, and its spatial equivalent between the ground, walls and ceiling. I use painting as a tool for reflection and analysis, to show the combinations of emotions I have felt at a given moment.

In the studio, I focus on certain types of movements, for instance a body dancing and the way it makes contact with the ground. Dance is important to me, both as a model and as an ideal. I enjoy working with a body, or a group of bodies, in their relationship to space. Producing space is my priority. I want viewers to experience the exhibition space through connections between my different pieces: the point is to think emotions through, and to experience a concrete space. In a way, the exhibition is composed like a painting; viewers must locate themselves within it.
