Caroline Bourrit (1992, lives and works in Neuchâtel, CH) opens up fields of vision linked to everyday life, conventions, places and narratives. She plays with repetition, déjà-vu, reversals and seeks to shift our attention and acquired. Bourrit questions our relationship to space and our capacity for anticipation and discernment. She creates a dynamic between narratives and social norms, in search of their paradoxes. Bourrit’s work proposes to thicken the present, through experimentation as a mode of knowledge, as a thought in action and in the making, as resistance. Language articulates the whole of her work; through writing, performance or installation, in its potentiality of (de)construction.
Bourrit is the 2021-2022 laureate of the atelier suisse art residency in Brussels and the 2018-2019 laureate of the Neuchâtel studio at the Cité internationale des arts art residency in Paris. She is founder and co-curator of Espace Contact (Neuchâtel) since 2023 and was part of the curatorial team of Cabane B (Bümpliz, Bern) from 2020 to 2022.
Bourrit holds a Master of Arts in Contemporary Art Practice (CAP), specializing in Literature and Fine Arts (2016-2018 - HKB, Bern) and a Bachelor of Arts in Fine Arts (2013-2016 - HEAD, Geneva), followed by an exchange at the Royal Institute of Art (2015 - KKH, Stockholm).
