Artist and performer Jocelyn Cottencin uses a wide variety of media to question the place and status of the sign. In the form of installations, films and performances, he explores the way in which images inhabit us, as in the performance Monumental, a score of gestures that activates the memory of certain places or monuments. His work focuses in particular on notions of community, group and the end of modernity.

Through numerous collaborations with choreographers, his work exposes the moving trace of signs and its impact on sensitive experience, as in the cycle of work co-conceived with the choreographer Emmanuelle Huynh.

He teaches at various schools in France and abroad. He is associated with the Exerce / CCN de Montpellier master's programme, notably on a line of research he has developed: "Publishing as a performative act".

He is in dialogue with Emmanuelle Huynh, artist and workshop leader at the Beaux-Arts de Paris.

Penser le Présent is supported by Société Générale.
