Dorian Sari

Artist, Junior Mentor

Dorian Sari is an observer of politics, emotions and social movements. The main core of his work is looking into human beings, cultures and he projects them with personal and collective mythology in his installations into completely fictional, theatrical, cinematographical scenes, based on psychoanalytic interpretation of man and his symbols. He creates a universe with a lot of narrations. Mostly under the form of a sculpture and sometimes as a video projection. Making sublimation of actuality with materials found in the street. Discharging his observations into these materials involves ceremonial rituals in the production process. Sometimes it is just a quiet sewing, sometimes it takes the form of a silent confession in his video works. Sculptures tell a story with the language of poetic symbols. The parallel of this communication between the conscious and the collective subconscious. He is combining rational scientific researches with metaphysical methods. Pointing at current affairs and taking a measure with his multidisciplinary background and his artistic vision is the main point of his work.
