Dorian Gaudin focuses on the interplay of correspondences between the organic, psychical, 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 theatre, science fiction cinema, burlesque and Minimalism. Revealing the capacity of objects to generate narrative and elicit our emotional and intellectual involvement, his works remind us of the way fetishisation of objects and technology governs our relationship with the world.
