Julien Friedler (Brussels,1950) is a singular figure in the contemporary art scene. His literary past, his training as a psychoanalyst, his love of philosophy and the writing of several erudite works, as well as his taste for travel and for encounters with diverse and often distant realities have built the basis of a labyrinthine thought that sees in the visual arts an emblematic hypothesis of realization. Paintings, sculptures, and installations are mediators of a filled imaginary, and constitute the visible signs of a mythical truth that the artist develops through themes with a very personal slant.
