8# Salon: Ingrid Cogne | CAUSER

In the 8th exhibition of the series Salon Real / Virtual entitled CAUSER, works by French artist and researcher Ingrid Cogne are displayed. Cogne likes to question im/materiality and in/visibility, be it of knowledge or practices as well as their activations, translations, relationalities, and circulations.Ingrid Cogne uses choreography to create movement and suspension and time, positioning, and displacement in relation to Economy, Knowledge, Work, and Individuals. Her work problematizes the dramaturgy of existing or created situations. With soft provocation for movement in representations and structures, the artist likes to shake and shift perceptions, projections, and perspectives and conceptualizes artworks in the form of sculptural articulated objects in movement, expanded choreographies, artistic researches, and books.In CAUSER, moving and wording are intertwined and engaged into articulation(s). “Causer” is a French verb that has the double meaning of “being the reason of” or “having an informal talk”. Playing with words and wordings is a central theme within Cogne’s oeuvre. With CAUSER, she embraces the double space of Salon Real/Virtual by exposing a selection of her artworks and offering to the visitors an insight into her current arts-based research called The Dramaturgy of Conversation.

In SALON REAL the visitor encounters the site-specific sculptural object Rond de Jambes. The piece, made of Acrylglas, is nearly invisible and corresponds to the outer edges of the table. The artwork is composed as a site-specific communication tool between the chairs, the round table, the gallery, and the visitors in the real space. In addition, Cogne brings into play the format conversation with a series of one-to-one encounters titled #9, #18, and #45.SALON VIRTUAL impresses with a minimalistic, colorful room, wherein 3 pieces of the series SETTING—SEATING—SITTING are on display. These artworks retrace Cogne’s process of occupation of a virtual space in between fiction and reality and the dramaturgy of existing and new created situations.
