Résumé
Internet, jeu vidéo, mobile multimédia, GPS, installation et scénographie interactives, RFID, environnement virtuel partagé, robotique sont autant de nouveaux territoires d’investigation artistique. Pour permettre un investissement pratique, critique et prospectif de ces dispositifs socio-techniques, il est essentiel de positionner la création artistique comme un domaine de recherche à part entière. Mais, instituer la « Recherche et Création » introduit autant de perspectives que de questions : consolidation des liens entre pratique et théorie, relation fondamentale à la technique et à l’ingénierie, travail collectif et dialogue avec d’autres disciplines – en particulier scientifiques – et d’autres secteurs – telle l’industrie –, redistribution des rôles entre artistes, enseignants-chercheurs et étudiants, nouveaux modes d’exposition, de diffusion des œuvres et de relation au public, réagencement de l’économie de l’art, stratégie de rayonnement international pour les grandes institutions de formation.

S’appuyant sur ces expériences significatives et sur la vision de personnalités, artistes et chercheurs, cet ouvrage pose les bases d’une véritable politique de Recherche & Création avec les technologies, à la confluence des arts contemporains, des milieux de la recherche, de la pédagogie et de l’innovation.

What is missing – catalogue

Curating, workshop and publication, 2014

Cequimanque_01

In partnership with the University of Montpellier 3 Paul Valery, School of Panacea offers an annual art experience to a group of students, creating an area of transmission and sharing of knowledge that complements and enriches the teaching methods academics in a research and experimentation.

In 2013-2014, Panacea entrusted the curating and coordination to Thierry Fournier, artist and curator, who proposed the project What is missing . He invites Armand Béhar, Laura Gozlan, Gwenola Wagon and Stéphane Degoutin to create three in situ works. It offers students to participate in the whole process of creating this exhibition of his works and a publication devoted to the project. What is missing queries including notions of utopia and evolution, and the emergence of collective projects critical conditions.

The project unfolds around a sentence, a protocol and a common device. It asks a question deliberately open: What is missing. Faced with a contemporary situation of “post-democracy” and the takeover of the culture industry, is emerging an issue concerning the conditions of joint projects that can be expressed here as well as reminiscence, utopia or alternate history. This is both desire, tension between individual and community and possibility of a common real or fictional space.

Performed at the end of each week of residence, a publication describes the process, consisting of 4 large sheets folded A1, which will be screened during the exhibition.

This project is closely linked to other curatorial projects led by Thierry Fournier: Outside Lectures, Augmented window, Cohabitation, etc. Under different forms, each of them proposes a general protocol hosting multidisciplinary interventions (artists, writers, students, amateurs) acting through practice, about the same subject addressing a collective question.

A catalog designed for tablets

The research and creation workshop Coedition at the National College of Art of Nancy explores since several years digital art practices, in multiple forms: works, curating and performing arts. Its projects have been showed at Ballet de Lorraine, CITU, Nancy Museum of Fine Arts, Contexts (Paris), CNES Chartreuse Villeneuve-les-Avignon, Tunis Choreographic Festival, NaMiMa Nancy, etc. Its 2013 project was Co-edition, the first digital catalogue for iPad published in Ensa Nancy.

Alum is the first catalog ever published about the visual artists graduated of Ensa Nancy. Designed for tablets, the project grasps the very characteristics of this medium: cover as an index, very large pages dedicated to each artist allowing multiple relationships between their elements, multimedia, etc. The project was designed and built under the guidance of artists coordinators by the students of École des Mines (Nancy Engineering School), ICN Business School and Ensa Nancy Art College, who participated in the entire design process and realization of the publication.

Alum brings together the work of forty-two artists, spotted by the school and / or having answered to a call for participation launched in late 2013. Each one of them proposed a biography, a series of images or videos and – for some of them – a critical text about their work.
