After a residency in March 2019 at the Fondation Thalie, Boris Bergmann will present the fruit of his research: a poetic map, created in collaboration with the Belgian architect Bas Smets, retracing his poetic and artistic drifts in the footsteps of the artist Sophie Podolski through Brussels. On the occasion of this publication, Boris Bergmann will read aloud.
Boris Bergmann (1992, Paris) is a writer. At 15, he published his first book, Viens là que je te tue ma belle (Scali Editions), which received the Prix de Flore du lycéen in 2007. This book is adapted for Arte by the director Jean Stéphane Sauvaire with, among others, Béatrice Dalle. Boris Bergmann continues to write: a novel on lying (1000 Mensonges, Denoël editions, 2010), another on engagement (Déserteur, Calmann-Lévy editions, 2016), a fourth on desire (Nage Libre, Calmann-Levy edition, 2018), and more recently, a short story (Dites-le avec des peurs, Marcel editions, 2018). In 2018, he was a boarder at Villa Médicis for the preparation of his fifth novel and first collection of poems. He won the 2018 Literary Prize for Vocation.
