Olivier Ratsi (b.1972) 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’s works are not specifically aimed to unleash emotions or to perturb the senses, but rather to work as a catalyst for different points of view and cultural and psychological references. As part of his process, Ratsi creates systems that deconstruct spatio-temporal reference points. Fascinated with the vanishing point and the role of optical perspective in the history of art, from his meticulous studies of spatial representation, combined with technical and scientific knowledge, Ratsi is able to understand and distort the perception of space: “I override perspective conventions in order to break with the ‘normality’ in front of us — that which seems obvious at first glance. Challenging perspective allows me to ask questions on many different levels about our own perceptions.”

Ratsi is known as one of the co-founders and former member of the artist collective AntiVJ.
