Tomek Jarolim

From his computing studies at the IUT (Technoligical Universtity Institute), Tomek Jarolim has preserved a strong interest for the logic of the code. He retains this work at the Art School of Aix-en-Provence, where he obtains his Master Degree in Fine Arts with high distinction in 2009. His work takes the shape of installations like Spaces of Silence and Shout! to question about the presence of the body in space, and directly return to the audience its condition of viewer. In 2008, Tomek Jarolim transposes his colorful and digital universe in the scenography of Shades of White, a piece conceived on a choreography by Bruno Péré “Les Affluents” a Ballet Preljocaj festival. The same year, he joins the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where he mainly focuses his work on sound. As a result, he creates a piece entitled Ut Queant Laxis, of which one exerpt, “C”, is choreographed by Beth Jucoy for “Innovation in Dance” festival in New York. In 2009, he exhibits Invisibles, a generative installation on screens, at the 14th Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean and “Tout Doit Apparaître”, which opens to a sensory aspect of his work. He continues exploring this facet on a version of Wagner’s Ring Saga opera, produced by Antoine Gindt, for late 2011.
