First monograph.
Clément Cogitore (born 1983 in Colmar, France, lives and works in Paris) develops an artistic practice halfway between cinema and contemporary art. Combining film, video, installations and photographs, his work questions the modalities of cohabitation of men with their images. There is often question of ritual, collective memory, figuration of the sacred as well as a particular idea of the permeability of the worlds. His films have been selected for numerous international festivals (Director's Fortnight Cannes, Locarno, Lisbon, Montréal...) and won several awards. His work has also been screened or presented in various art centres and museums (Palais de Tokyo, Paris, Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris, Haus der Kultur der Welt, Berlin, Museum of fine arts, Boston...).
