Dorian Sari born in 1989, in Izmir, Turkey. Studied Political Science and Languages, Greek literature at Paris Sorbonne University, Visual Art at HEAD Geneva, and Visual Art Institut Kunst Basel. They live and work in Basel and Geneva, Switzerland.
Dorian Sari is an observer of public reactions to contemporary politics and social movements. The main core of their work is looking into human beings, cultures and projecting them with personal and collective mythology into completely fictional, theatrical scenes, based on anthropological and psychoanalytical interpretation of humans and their symbols. They create a certain perspective for a certain period in their narrations. Mostly in the form of sculpture, video, and performance. Their goal is requestioning cultural norms and hierarchies.

Sari’s work has recently been presented at; Musée d’Art Modern du Grand Duc Jean de Luxembourg, Luxembourg (2023); Kunsthalle Geneva, Switzerland (2022); Kunstmuseum Basel, Switzerland (2021); Gallery Öktem & Aykut, Turkey (2021). In 2021 they received the Manor Kunstpreis and in 2019 the Swiss Art Awards Switzerland.
