Artist of hybridization and hybridization, Geordy Zodidat Alexis works on language and memory, on the intimate link that unites history, collective memory, and personal memory. Using a reflexive approach, he questions his multiple cultural heritage (Caribbean, Africa, and Europe) to bring out new thoughts. By confronting several cultures, which he discovers during his travels or his readings, he opens a humanist dialogue on the construction of the relationship with the Other and on the place of the human in society.
Present on the French national and international scene (La Panacée in 2008, Mediterraneo Centro Artistico in 2014, Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery in 2016,…), Geordy Zodidat Alexis poetizes reality through sensitive and intimate works.
