JULIAN RATINON

Born in 1991, Julian obtained an Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts from the Marseille School of Fine Arts and a BA (Hons) from the Mahatma Gandhi Institute (MGI) School of Fine Arts in Mauritius. He took part in VIDEOFORMES, an international digital arts festival in Clermont- Ferrand, in 2014; in the Rencontres Internationales Sciences et Cinémas (RISC) in Marseille in 2016; and in CentQuatre, the International Biennale of Digital Arts, in Paris in 2017. That same year, he stood out in the French Civil Society of Multimedia Authors’ selection of new talent. Julian lives and works in Mauritius, and recently took part in Kolectiv 318-Le Corbusier and in Belsunce Projects, both in Marseille. “The limits of my language represent the limits of my world.” – Ludwig Wittgenstein Julian’s work is built around language. It plays with phonetics, anagrams and puns. He creates expressions that defy literal interpretation and that require a second reading. “Like the writer who hides lines inside other lines, can we perceive the painful hidden meanings inside words?”, he wonders.
