DIFFICULT OBJECTS

The collection « Difficult Objects » highlights two artists (Andrea Wolf and Katie Ann-Houghton) whose works don’t align with the art historical status quo, and embody the numerous complexities of difficult objects. From craft to digital media to controversial works, this collection brings to the fore issues that are not easy to reconcile.

« PHYSICALITY OF THE INTERNET »

This selection of works is focused on the work of Sophie Deltombe, an artist whose practice questions the internet, its aesthetics, language and codes. By appropriating the vocabulary, mechanisms and modus operandi of the Internet culture, she discloses her daily relationship with connected objects.

HÉMISPHÈRES

For Emmanuel Cuisinier “Hemispheres” evokes as much the idea of metaphysical spaces where we can exist and dream as geographic and biological territories. North/south, left/right, emotional/rational, real/virtual — the notion of hemisphere calls to mind duality, binarity, conflict but also transition.

WYSI NOT WYG

Digital artists are deviators who insert a layer of indetermination between reality and its representation. The artists I selected for this online curatorship practice this alchemy and formulate some variations in the continuum of our lives, between birth, social life, war, play, religion, death and transfiguration.

COSMOS OF MUTUAL EXCHANGES

For me, an exhibition is not a final goal but a platform where each player enriches their sensory knowledge and collectively participates in opening up new ways of perceiving and acting in society, faced with our accelerated world. These are the mutual cosmic exchanges that give artworks their “value” and can help us to rethink our politics of recombinatory commons.

VARIATION MEDIA ART FAIR

Throughout the world, a few media art fairs are popping up here and there, while Variation continues to pursue its mission. Now in its third year, this singular Parisian salon and expo comes to the Cité Internationale des Arts. The importance of this venue becomes apparent when we consider the blank walls of its gallery situated in the Marais.

ARTT (Art To Tablet)

Contemporary art lovers cannot ignore new media art and its capacity for original collections and demonstrations. From video to Net art, interactive installations and animated GIFs, digital art is being exhibited on a new screen: the tablet. From Agam to Hockney, big names of the art world are using these nomadic screens as an organic and living canvas to share the adventure of their collector.

RISING CLASSICS

The artworks in Klio Krajewska's collection represent various trends in media arts: installations, kinetic sculptures, digital images. Each one, in its own field, represents the culmination of contemporary esthetics, without overplaying the technology required to realize it.
