Collection Artem

Creation of a public art collection in an art school
Thierry Fournier & Jean-François Robardet
Ecole nationale supérieure d’art et de design de Nancy, Artem

Created and coordinated by Thierry Fournier and Jean-François Robardet (artists and curators), the Collection project is part of the Artem Alliance, which brings together the École nationale supérieure d’art et de design de Nancy, Mines Nancy and ICN Business School. It is led by the Artem Collection workshop, coordinated by the two artists, which brings together 15 students from the three schools. The workshop invites all art school students who so wish (4th and 5th year) to present their work to them and selects some of them for a group exhibition. An independent acquisition committee then meets with the artists and selects four works for purchase by Artem. These acquisitions are financed by Artem, Artem Entreprises and ENSAD Nancy.

Collection Artem makes it possible to support the work of young artists from the beginning of their careers, to make Artem’s action sustainable, while building a fund that can be valued in the long term. It introduces into an art school a reflection and debate on the support mechanisms that young artists will later face.

Collection 2018

On February 16, 2018, the works of Juliette Hippert, Clara Sobieski and Alexandre Villevandre were selected to be part of the Artem Collection, the first public collection in an art school in France, at the École nationale supérieure d’art et de design de Nancy.

The works were chosen by an independent acquisition committee composed of Maude Maris and Stéphane Thidet (artists) and Raphaëlle Friot (Artem coordinator, Secretary General Artem-Nancy), from a pre-selection exhibited in February 2018 with works by Pierre André, Quentin Gaudry, Mathilde Gérard, Juliette Hippert, Élodie Paupe, Cécile Pétry, Rémy Pommeret, Louison Rivière, Clara Sobieski, Tiphaine Stainmesse, Marianne Thibault, Marina Uribe and Alexandre Vilvandre. 

Artem Collection 2018 Workshop : Thierry Fournier, Jean-François Robardet (artists and curators, coordinators), Mathilde Arnal, Alix Bardy, Victoria Clemens, Nabila Halim, Fabien Karp, Pauline Quille, Gil Zinck (ENSAD), Benoît Fergelot, François Fotré, Hirvin Pena-Pitra (Mines Nancy), Mathilde Borges, Léa Coudray, Alice Devès, Manon Fontaine, Jade Nguyen-Choleau (ICN Business School)

The Self and the World

collective feature film, research project, 2015

Two collective feature film and an exhibition, 2014-2015
Nancy Art College – ARTEM

Conception and direction Thierry Fournier and Jean-François Robardet, original idea Thierry Fournier. With Mathilde Bénard, Simon Boutelou, Elina Chared, Lucile Doos, Isis Gondouin, Lise Guerder, Oualid Hariss, Anaïs Juin, Heather Krasker, Bora Kwak, Ming-Ying Lu, Rostom Nakmouche, Su-Min Park, Antoine Py et Fan Wang (2015), Aurélie Ayub, Marine Calamai, Anne-Sophie Dautheville-Guibal, Bao-Vi Defaux, Alix Desaubliaux, Sarah Guermonprez, Qijia Hu, Dori Lee, Jean-Christophe Louviot, Paul-Edouard Puyo (2016).

The Self and the world is a collective film formed by a series of shorts created by the students. What is addressed to the world in our everyday life? And in which terms the world could address to ourselves? Each short is composed in split-screen facing these two point of views. The project suggests a link between collective cultural practices and the individual use of digital images and smartphones.

The Electroshop research and creation workshop explores since several years forms of the digital in art: works, curating, publishing, etc. Its projects are shown in several public contexts: Ballet de Lorraine, Musée des beaux-arts de Nancy, NaMiMa, editions with Pandore and Art Book Magazine, etc.

The research group Displays – created and coordinated by Thierry Fournier (artist, curator and researcher) with J. Emil Sennewald (critic, journalist, lecturer and researcher) – aims to question and experiment with the exhibition forms in a post-digital context, that is pervaded by the presence of digital technology and the Internet throughout both culture and practices. This evolution has already transformed artworks, collaboration modes, curatorial practices, art criticism, art education and outreach, audiences, and how they look at art. It also entails an acknowledgment of digital materiality and of its processes, after a historical period marked by an ideology of dematerialization. Furthermore, a certain porosity has set in between practices – for example, between those of artists, curators and audiences, in the case of curation – a practice that involves reinterpretation and exchanges, which attests to the conversational status of media.

Our research takes all of these issues into account, and addresses the way in which they modify the thinking behind, and the practice of, exhibitions, as far as the different actors’ roles are concerned, but also with regards to the objects involved and the spaces and networks these exhibitions invest. Our approach consists in a research through the exhibition, which is treated as an experimental situation that involves a set of actors, objects, production and valorisation modes, spaces and temporalities. The exhibition is seen here as a moment within a process, rather than as the result of one, and is considered “experimentable” and debatable by the different stakeholders (artists, audiences, art and museum curators, critics…), in view of a critical approach of their interactions.
This program is based on three main issues that concern the very form that exhibitions take, as well as the relations that exist between them and their context. These issues are briefly outlined below, along with the lines of research and of creation that they may give rise to:

1. What. How do an exhibition’s objects evolve, from exhibited objects and works of art towards gestures, performative situations, experimentations and production processes? How do e-publications (which are themselves evolving processes, no longer merely publications) and mobile environments contribute to new curatorial forms? How are questions related to reproducibility and simulation brought up? Can experiences of co-creation conducted in a museum setting also apply to art exhibitions?

2. Who. How do relations with audiences evolve, and who designs exhibitions? How do viewer expectations and practices evolve? How does the distribution (or reclaiming) of roles among artists, curators, critics, exhibition planners and designers develop? How can these be related to the context of institutional critique? How can we experiment with audiences? What part does interactivity take today in curatorial forms? What are the stakes involved? What are the goals and stakes of participation, particularly of social networks in museums and exhibitions?

3. Where. How are exhibition spaces and venues evolving? Now that audiences are largely accessing art and culture online, what bearing does this have on the distinctiveness of the exhibition experience? What shapes are exhibitions taking in a dialogue between real space and the network? How can the collective space of the exhibition be connected to the individual practice that is unique to the web and mobile devices? How can we put forward a critique and create the conditions for emancipation from the rationale of the attention economy? How can we qualify and critique relations between museums, online exhibitions and data bases?

Flatland

Catalogue (2014)

Digital catalogue dedicated to the Augmented window project, 2014
Editing Thierry Fournier and J. Emil Sennewald
Distribution Pandore Edition

Texts by Jean Cristofol, Céline Flécheux, Thierry Fournier, J. Emil Sennewald. Programming Stanislas Schoirfer. English translations Clémence Homer.

Flatland is a digital catalogue devoted to the Augmented window project. It stems from a dialogue and a close collaboration between artist and curator Thierry Fournier, art critic and journalist J. Emil Sennewald, and developer Stanislas Schoirfer. From its beginnings, the catalogue was conceived for tablets. This choice is the result not only of the Augmented window project’s very logic and medium, but also of a willingness to explore how the tablet as a substrate contributes to the critical approach: beyond the mere aspect of mobility, how do the practices it generates create new relationships between meanings / relationships of meaning.

Together, the authors defined the project’s editorial direction, its interactive design and its visual identity, which uses Bartok, a new font created by Sarah Kremer, throughout the publication. Flatland accompanies Pandore Production’s edition of Augmented window for the iPad, as a free-standing application. This double publication enables the user to take part in a permanent dialogue, on a single substrate, between the catalogue and the experience of the works. Flatland, therefore, focuses more on the project’s critical and transversal aspects.

A new vision of space

Flatland is the title of a novella published by Edwin Abbott Abbott in 1884, “a politico-graphical allegory, somewhere between Lewis Carroll, Jonathan Swift and George Orwell”. Described as a forerunner of sci-fi literature, an exercise in geometry and a sharp critique of Victorian society, a digital edition of the book has just been released for tablets. The fact that it is now licensed for free distribution is not the only reason behind this new edition. As the author himself states in the introduction of his satire, he wants “to contribute to pushing back the frontiers of imagination”. That he chooses to do so by dealing with the notion of space is not without significance. It is perhaps the main reason behind the renewed interest [in this notion] sparked by Flatland’s digital version.

We are currently at a major turning point in the field of publishing, one that follows the turn taken by images (“iconic turn”) and space (“spatial turn”); so that today, we as artists, authors and editors, face a dynamic space that is no longer limited to the physical confines of the Renaissance’s monocular perspective. Today, space is the perforated space of houses linked to one another by cables. It is a space shaped by images. It is also a screen, which we stumble upon. Behind it, an augmented “space” opens up: “the physical space, layered with dynamically changing informations”. Identified in the 60s by Lefèbvre or Flusser, dynamic space has become subject matter for artists who ask themselves how, by what means, and through which structures space is augmented.

Practices of discernment

One cannot approach space without questioning the means that are used to represent it. These means – images, architectures, symbols appliances – constitute its very body. It is up to us – artists, critics, editors – to offer a practice of space; discernment to break with the logic of consumption, view its consequences with a critical eye, model its landscapes. In the face of the great movements of media concentration, this occurs in a dispersed way: by focusing on specific points, one can, in a way, identify the terrain of this augmented space, so that one might approach it in an enlightened manner.

Another critique view

This is where the art critic steps in. Having chosen as a starting point the “accomplice critic” method – which reacts in form and content to artistic stakes, follows the artist’s rationale, research and conclusions, while thinking about the conditions of their possibility – I asked myself the question what the best form would be form in order to answer a digital artwork already created on a tactile screen. Very soon, it became obvious that the critical ability to transcribe a visual experience was no longer enough. The text had to be conceived of differently – as code and as image – in order to engage with what it was that the tool – i.e., the tablet – makes available. The Flatland project intellectually and manually challenges the art critic’s faculties. New roads open up to use such an apparatus, such as for example the introduction of quotes to orient reading towards other material, to open the space around the text and make it dynamic. New forms of the critic’s work emerge as a consequence, conscious of the stakes associated to these devices. As digital publications emerge, the critic’s old substrates – the book, the catalogue, the art review – are reconsidered.

One of the reasons behind Flatland lies in a practice that raises questions regarding substance while using tools that are codified by the industry; that is confronted with the reality of the screen that opens both the gaze and the field of action onto new fields; in short, one that contributes to pushing back the frontiers of the imagination.

Research project – Ensad / EnsadLab – Diip program, 2012
Led by Thierry Fournier
Team: Clémence Homer, Tomek Jarolim, Dominique Peysson, Benoit Verjat.

Umwelt is a project about mixed-media note taking (HD manuscript, keyboard, drawing, hypermedia, tags …) to be used in all types of environments: travel, scouting, rehearsals, design or work sessions, and architecture design, fashion, comments, field work in social sciences, musical notation, etc. It is therefore aimed as much for professional use and private, general or specialized, documentary or fictional. It is based on several dimensions: handwritten practice, structuring memory, environmental integration, interoperability.

Museographic installation – Large interactive multi-user table, 2010

Museographic installation – Large interactive multi-user table, 2010

This table was created for Nestploria Center for Digital Interpretation at the Gargas Caves, one of Europe’s primary sites of prehistoric “negative hands”. Based entirely on touch, the intuitive design confronts visitors’ hands with the imprints left by prehistoric man on cave walls 27,000 years ago.

Discover and copy the gesture

Approaching negative prehistoric hands with a tactile device provided an opportunity for a particularly stimulating historical coming together. The table is treated as a “frame” that visitors can slide along a very large image of the cave walls. Doing so, they discover 16 prehistoric imprints in context. When you touch one of them, an interactive window appears: composition and application of color, technique, historical hypotheses, examination of detail with a dynamic magnifying glass. Visitors can also make their own handprint, next to the prehistoric hand. Through touch, visitors are permanently connected to the original prehistoric gesture. The device can be used by 12 people simultaneously.

Navigate to scale 1

All images (walls, prehistoric and visitor imprints) are drawn on a 1 to 1 scale. The table’s large dimensions allow visitors to experience the real dimensions of the cave walls. These two directions – tactile exploration and a life size scale – materialize these multimillenia old imprints and allow the almost unthinkable exploration of the cave itself.

Digital engineering

Because of its very large size (4.80 x 1.20 m), this apparatus brought together a team of engineers, programmers and technicians gathered by Thierry Fournier in collaboration with the EnsadLab research laboratory from the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs de Paris (“Sensitive Surfaces” stream).

Research and creation workshop, Nancy College of Art, 2004-2016 (translation in progress)

Research and creation workshop
Nancy College of Art / Artem, 2004-2016
Led by Thierry Fournier and Jean-François Robardet

Translation in progress

Cet atelier de recherche et création a été initié par Samuel Bianchini en 2000, rejoint par Thierry Fournier en 2004 qui en a repris la coordination en 2007 avant d’être rejoint à son tour par Jean-François Robardet en 2008. L’atelier fait partie du dispositif ARTEM, spécifique à Nancy : une association entre l’École nationale supérieure d’Art, l’Ecole des Mines de Nancy et ICN Business School, dont le campus commun ouvrira en 2017. Comme les autres “Arcs” Artem, l’atelier accueille donc des étudiant-e-s des trois écoles, au niveau master.

Axes de recherche

Electroshop traite des pratiques numériques en art, en proposant au fil du temps des terrains d’expérimentation différents. Il explore notamment la question des dispositifs interactifs, dans le contexte d’installations, de créations scéniques ou performatives. Cette recherche se caractérise par trois directions principales : la notion de geste, la relation entre spectateurs et interprètes, et les mutations de la notion d’écriture. La question de l’interactivité dans un contexte scénique (théâtre, danse, performance) est nécessairement liée à la relation entre le corps et le geste de l’interprète ou du spectateur, et leur environnement. Le terme de geste est alors à comprendre dans son sens le plus large, de l’action corporelle à l’acte de langage : tout mouvement humain qui peut être « capté » par un dispositif réagissant en temps réel à ses variations. Les objets de la recherche portent donc sur l’invention de ces dispositifs, la conception du geste dans ces conditions, et la production de représentations multimédias à partir de la relation entre geste et dispositif en temps réel.

Les dispositifs interactifs peuvent donc concerner tout aussi bien les spectateurs que les interprètes, qui peuvent non seulement partager le même espace, mais aussi entrer en interaction avec les mêmes dispositifs. Les questions ouvertes par cette direction sont nombreuses : enjeux d’une mise en scène ou mise en jeu du spectateur, relations entre installation et performance, exploration des différences de pratique des dispositifs par les spectateurs et par les interprètes.

Enfin, l’invention de formes interactives renouvelle profondément la notion d’écriture (texte, chorégraphie, partition musicale) dans la mesure où celle-ci n’est pas fixée linéairement en amont, mais résulte d’une relation réciproque entre protagonistes (public et/ou interprètes) et dispositifs. Se posent alors des questions liées aux enjeux d’une écriture scénique, de l’élaboration d’une temporalité spécifique, et de l’invention de protocoles de production textuels, gestuels, spatiaux, sonores et musicaux.

Méthodologie

Ces projets sont soit des œuvres des artistes coordinateurs auxquels les étudiants sont invités à participer, soit des projets individuels ou collectifs d’étudiants. Dans les deux cas, on déploie une recherche-création par projet qui implique les étudiants sur l’ensemble de la conception et de la réalisation d’une œuvre, sous l’autorité de l’artiste coordinateur. Un tel principe permet d’installer une dynamique d’excellence par l’articulation de la recherche et de la pédagogie, la première faisant levier pour la seconde. Des créateurs professionnels, avec des étudiants, initient, conçoivent, expérimentent, réalisent, dirigent et rendent public un projet artistique. Impliqués sur toutes les phases et registres de la création, les étudiants font l’expérience complète d’un projet d’envergure, pluridisciplinaire, collectif et techniquement prospectif. Tous les étudiants sont invités à participer à la totalité du processus de recherche et création, quelle que soit leur filière d’origine, sans spécialisation de leur intervention.

Diffusion et valorisation

Chaque création donne toujours lieu à une diffusion publique. La finalisation, l’exposition et la diffusion dans un contexte professionnel des œuvres développées dans le cadre de l’Arc inscrit ainsi l’ensemble du processus de travail dans une logique de valorisation et de diffusion de la recherche :

– par une diffusion des créations de l’Arc auprès de contextes professionnels et de publics élargis, faisant connaître les travaux de recherche auprès d’une large audience. Depuis 2004, dix œuvres et expositions ont été réalisées dans le cadre de l’Arc Electroshop. L’ENSAN intervient pour tous ces projets comme coproducteur principal, en partenariat avec plusieurs institutions publiques et privées.

– par des actions régulières de publication sur différents supports. L’ENSAN intervient pour toutes ces publications comme coproducteur et/ou coéditeur (Les Éditions du Parc).
