Portrait of Jocelyn Cottencin

Artist and performer Jocelyn Cottencin uses a wide variety of media to question the place and status of signs: in the form of installations, films, performances or typographic creations, he explores the way images inhabit us. His work focuses on notions of community and group, and the end of modernity. Through numerous collaborations with artists from the choreographic field, his work exposes the shifting trace of signs and their impact on sensitive experience, as in the cycle of work devoted to the cities of New York, Saint-Nazaire, Sao Paulo and Houston, co-conceived with choreographer Emmanuelle Huynh.
