The audiovisual installation Pêle-Mêle uses a double anamorphosis visible from one sole and unique viewpoint. Upon entering the room, the viewer have to be placed himself at equal distance between two anamorphosed modules in the form of right angles, situated on either side of the space. Geometric content made up of vertical and horizontal lines known as “Peelings” are projected and diffused from one module to the other. The illusion of depth generates a similar effect to “wormholes,” evoking the possibility of the existence of space-time tunnels, which could be seen as a reference to quantum physics. Viewers are free to move around within the structure and to choose their own viewpoint, wherever they are within the space.

Olivier Ratsi creates site-specific art and immersive installations using light and mapping video projections. In his work he explores reality, time, space and matter as a series of intangible informative notions. Focusing on the experience of reality and its representations, as well as the perception of space, he conceives works that encourage the viewer to question their own interpretation of what is real. Ratsi is known as one of the co-founders and former member of the artist collective AntiVJ. Now working as a solo artist, he has had solo and group exhibitions around the world, including at Denise René Gallery and Charlot Gallery, Paris, FR; Atsuko gallery, Tokyo, JP; Puerta Roja, Hong Kong, HK; and Wood Street Galleries, Pittsburgh, US. His works have been exhibited in museums including OCT Museum, Shanghai, CN; K11 Art Village, Wuhan, CN; D-Museum, Seoul, KR; and the National Taiwan Museum of Fine Arts, Taichung,TW. His works have been presented at numerous festivals and events including Elektra, Mutek and International Digital Arts Biennial, Montreal, CA; Biennale Némo, Mirage and Bains Numériques, FR.
