Aurelien Bomy


Born in Nantes in 1978, Aurélien developed a taste and interest for the arts at an early stage. He is a clinical psychologist, based on psychoanalysis, in hospitals, private practice and associations.

In parallel with this path, experience, studies, publications, teaching and clinical practice, he continues an artistic practice in various ways. He discovers and learns from other artists, designers, webmasters and graphic designers, how to publish articles, create, design, illustrate websites, and how to perform in web streaming, computer graphics, animation and video edition. He finds out the use of tools that allow him to give a new impulse to his artistic work, in photography and in the creation of animated collages (stop-motion).

In November 2018, his video "Dyschromatopsia" was selected by an international jury to be displayed at the GESTE Paris 2018 exhibition. Binary / Non-binary.  

Proceeding by associations, accumulations, aggregations, superpositions, splitting, sliding and stepping, his works contain a gap arousing confusion, fuzziness, disorder, disorientation, euphoria, malaise, loss of landmarks to touch the affects. By subtly subverting the symbolic coordinates of space, the aim of this work is to attack the univocity of interpretation of vision, fixity and the unifying power of the image. Thus to summon subjectivity by forcing the gaze to reform landmarks, to make singular choices towards novelty, surprise and invention, to raise the inexpressible and unrepresentable reality of life in a movement, a temporality.

This approach, bordering with the impossible, tends, in its testing, to push its limits to the very edge, while maintaining the function, the limits of figuration, in the domains and media used. It aims to reveal the illusory nature of any vision of the world, of any supposed border between dream and reality, to demonstrate that the latter is nothing but singular, fictional, fantasmatic and subjective.
