Ludovic Bernhardt

Ludovic Bernhardt is a visual artist and writer. He was born in France and is of Irish descent; he is currently living and working in Paris, after having worked in Istanbul and Lisbon. Just after being graduated from Le Fresnoy contemporary art Studio, (teacher: Sarkis) he spent several months in India in Indo-Tibetan Himalaya where he discovered Hinduism and Tibetan Art & Religion; then he started to create a work which focuses on geo-cultural identities, cartographies, and political signs. Since this period he has produced various installations, objects, paintings, texts and graphics - meditative diagrams, anxiolytics yantras, pills design, military codes, disturbed borders - to explore some psycho-geo-political problematics. In 2016 he created a self-publication book collection named (Global)*Z, presented in the Multiple Art Days in Paris. He is an artist represented by SANATORIUM in Istanbul. He has often collaborated with the art initiative space Plateforme in Paris and has participated in several exhibitions and Art Fairs in France, Turkey, Austria, Poland, India, Switzerland, Portugal, China & Greece. He was the curator of the exhibition Hyphologie showing French and Turkish contemporary artists in Istanbul.
