I presented at the library my last work The Three Realities.

The ternary approach of the three realities physical, perceived and represented, is a attempt to escape to our binary logic which leads our various scientific thoughts to contradictions, overrating logic and incompletnesses.

On the 2013.06.04 Xavier Bolot has given a lecture at the Chamber of Craft union of Bourges.
The subject was the three realities physical, perceived and represented as practical obviousness in our today world.
A lot of concrete examples were given in fields as various as architecture, economy, philosophy, physics, psychology, individual or collective behaviours, biology, arts of the living.
We live in the heart of this trilogy. Taking it in account allows us to precise our thoughts and to avoid misunderstanding.
Then we enter in the postmodernity.

It is an example of an application of the neuroscientific works of François Michel (1970) and Johansson (1972). The joints allow to zone MT of the brain from the dorsal road of the vision to identify the movement. Have a look to the chapter Videos of this website.

Lyric performance and neutal light paintings exhibited in galery Pictura Bourges

On the 2013.01.18 we assist to the lyric evocation of a while of happiness at the ridge of an imminent rupture, interpreted by Marie Bernard, (soprano, Aline Quentin, mezzo soprano, Sandrine Lusignant, harp. A soldier appeared, they understand that they will be separated.
The simple apparition of an object, and a fortiori of a loved person, changes my chemical equilibrium, the perturbed is changed in an new equilibrium, within a dynamic exchange between to human being.
But the time of this dynamic equilibrium is nevertheless limited.
A rupture appears as a fatality.
The emotion is in this transitory biologic state born from the rupture of my internal equilibrium.
In this trance the object changes me chemically, so I see the object in another way, so that the object becomes a new object, this one going once more to change me, and so on in a permanent exchange of information.

The painter catches a significant, and changing of state, may catch another one anr occurs nox the need to continue an multi sensorial exploration of the object.
This exchange of information is intensive between the object and my body.
The information is not the energy but goes always with the energy.
An intensive exchange of energy operates between the models and the painter.
This exchange of energy was triggered by Marie Bernard, soprano, Aline Quentin, mezzo soprano, Sandrine Lusignant, harp, triggering the modification of the environment by the only presence of the object, my living body being permanently in exchange with the environment.

Argentine tango performance, biennale of contemporary arts of Bourges

On the 2012.11.14, at 18h15 a performance of drawing and dancing was given at Café In, place Gordaine, Bourges.
The performance of dancers of argentine tango consists of improvising on the music.
The performance of the sketcher consists of catching their action on life.
The action is not the movement only.
The question is to catch the living out equilibrium, in a transforming process, with his intention of action.
The painter grasp as they come, with the chance, gestures in successive whiles which unroll the present.
That arrives naturally when the brains of the dancers, draughtsman and the music are synchronous and the draughtsman is dancing with the dancers.
The spectator's brain looking at the drawing remakes the movement of the scene and the presence of living.
This technique is presented in the book [i]How to Represent Action.[i/]

Performance de dessin et danse à Bourges.doc

Salsa and drawing performance at the castle of Villemenard

On the 2012.09.09 the performance occurred in the great chamber of the castle of Villemenard.
What is then so innovative in this performance executed by a draught man and two dancers?
Precisely the fact to draw in the present dancers dancing.
The present is not the while grasp into an attitude, with a photo camera, within a form diluted by the movement, losing the materialization of the image.
The present flows with the time with all emotions multi sensorial that dwell it, in an exchange of energy with the living out of equilibrium, perceived and represented.
Degas has draught dancers, but giving only statics attitudes, at a classic period when choreography represented a succession of canvasses.
Delacroix has sketched, remembering it, horses in full run with opened and multiple lines.
Rembrandt (drawing of the Capricious Child) and Wouters (bronze titled Domestic Worry) have represented body out of equilibrium.
Xavier Bolot, sketcher and painter, has systematically, working on the theme [i]Vision in Action,[/i] drawn and painted dancers dancing or acrobats in action in life in public.

L'harmattan publishes "How to represent action"

This work published in July 2012 is the third of a trilogy about the arts of living after
Drawing in Real Perspective and The Neutral Light.

How to Represent Action approaches the living with three iconoclast steps : the hazard is our wealth, the emotion and the knowledge, the levels of consciousness of the artist.
This approach reset our traditional conception of the human being and allows us, as an example, to use our faculties to draw dancers dancing or acrobats in action.

This performance points out the complexity to grasp the reality, the right gesture, and the corporal language.
The ritual of the creation is the represented, visceral and spiritual.
The counterpoint between bodies draught and active bodies try to reveal this inexhaustible question : what is to perceive the other ?
