Dorian Gaudin: Rites and Aftermath

Dorian Gaudin: Rites and Aftermath
Library Shelf Location 18.GAUD
Publication Date 2017

Dorian Gaudin focuses on the interplay of correspondences between the organic, physical, and material worlds. Combining performance, sculpture, and cinema, his oeuvre moves back and forth between automation and living systems. He mobilizes, dislocates, and mechanizes in an amalgamation of genres: absurdist theater, science fiction cinema, burlesque and Minimalism. In his exhibition at the Palais de Tokyo machines and social rituals, visual illusion and physical presence set in motion a mechanism which is also that of the emotions. Revealing the capacity of objects to generate narrative and elicit our emotional and intellectual involvement, his works remind us of the way fetishization of objects and technology governs our relationship with the world.
