- "Darlingtonia, the cobra plant", exhibition of Jagna Ciuchta (SACRe doctoral students) from April 3 to June 15
From April 3 to June 15, 2019, Jagna Ciuchta presents "Darlingtonia, the cobra plant", an exhibition prior to the dissertation defense, at the École municipale des Beaux-Arts in Gennevilliers.
Jagna Ciuchta's exhibitions are designed as ecosystems and as a pretext for multiple invitations. It invests them as areas for reflection on the conditions for the display and circulation of works, whether in the form of objects or reproductions. For this new project, Jagna Ciuchta is backed by the particularity of the École municipale des beaux-arts / galerie Édouard-Manet, which is oriented both towards amateur practices and towards contemporary creation. The title of the exhibition "Darlingtonia, the cobra plant" sounds like the title of a Z series centred around a heroine, slipping through a succession of metamorphoses from human to plant and to animal. The "carnivorous" images produced on occasion are documentary photographs of works, in real or fictional exhibition conditions. These images sometimes mix with their double originals and other works in a display, both set and presentation device designed by Jagna Ciuchta. In a perpetual movement of forms, the whole interacts, develops and maintains itself in a network of exchanges and dependencies.
With Cécile Bicler, Éléonore Cheneau, Arnaud Cousin, Viktorie Langer, Colombe Marcasiano, Laura Porter, Benjamin Swaim, Céline Vaché-Olivieri, Carrie Yamaoka, Virginie Yassef and anonymous artists (list likely to change during the exhibition).
