WallStreet
Varis 10-12
1700 Fribourg











Yul Tomatala (*1993, Geneva) explores notions of representation, constructed realities and memory, both collective and personal. Imbued by architecture and pushed to its limits, his practice oscillates between image and sculpture. His installations, question a modernity marked by blurry and entropic outlines, that define in-betweens. In this approach, the rereading and manipulation of narratives and real places take the form of parallel truths.

He graduated with a Bachelor's degree in photography from the École cantonale d'art de Lausanne in 2019 and a Master's degree in Visual Art from HEAD Geneva in 2023. His work has recently been shown at Festival Les Urbaines, Lausanne, Live In Your Head, Geneva, as well as at Hasch and Bureaupolis, Marseille. He currently lives and works in Geneva.
