Jocelyn Cottencin has developed his artistic practice by being a jack-of-all-trades. For him, graphic art is blended with performance art, and design coexists with the visual arts. The one common denominator? Words.
Created for the Maison de l’Avocat during the 2012 edition of Le Voyage à Nantes, then displayed during the Paris Nuit Blanche that same year, the artist has decided to install his work, Echoes, across the river by hanging it from the Loire Building of Nantes’ architecture school.
Taking on the form of a graphic and luminous sculpture, he has created a hypnotic visual score interspersed with a refrain that affirms TOUT EST VRAI (“EVERYTHING IS REAL”) / TOO MUCH REALITY.
Artwork realised in co-production with le Frac Bretagne et Nuit Blanche 2012.
