The doors of the day, the exhibition of the winners of the 1% art market prize Musée Cognacq-Jay, October 1, 2022, Paris.

From Saturday 01 October 2022 to Sunday 23 October 2022:
Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Sunday
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Orangery of the Carnavalet museum and the garden of the Cognacq-Jay museum host, from October 1st to 23rd, the exhibition “The doors of the day”. Inaugurated as part of Nuit Blanche 2022, this exhibition brings together the works of the winners of the third edition of the 1% Art Market Prize.

“An exhibition is always a dialogue: between the works, the artists and the people who organize it. Contemporary creation challenges, provokes, seduces or disturbs: it raises more questions than it gives answers.
The exhibition The doors of the day is thought of as an open scenario, a script without an imposed outcome, which allows us to understand time and space in a different way.
Deployed on two historical sites, the Carnavalet and Cognacq-Jay museums, the five contemporary works winners of the 1% art market prize share a common acuity to reflect on the present, equidistant from utopia and dystopia.
Different temporalities and realities coexist within the exhibition – imaginary, material, interior, exterior, local, global. Since the dawn of time, artists have been attentive mediums and sensitive witnesses who, deciphering the changes in the world, help us to clear our way into the invisible. »

Anne Dressen – Exhibition curator at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris and curator of the exhibition The doors of the day.

Amnesia, 2022

Katinka Bock, born in Frankfurt in 1976, living and working in Paris, offers a discursive approach to sculpture, photography and language. The form is often the result of a process where the rational and the irrational meet and coexist. Timeless, mythological and futuristic warrior, Amnesia delivers a reflection on equestrian statuary, revisited in a depersonalized feminine version.

Isabelle Cornaro

Sequences (IV) testifies to formerly hierarchical productions, borrowed from domestic, decorative or functional contexts.

Ariane Loze, If you didn't choose A, you will probably choose

Ariane Loze, born in Belgium in 1988, living and working in Brussels, proceeds in her video-performances, where the artist often plays all the roles, to a methodical deconstruction of the codes of cinema to bring it back to its operating minimum. If you didn’t choose A, you will probably choose B offers an immersion in the metaverse, a comedy projecting a world about to happen. In a deserted Paris, the heroine continues to be analysed, spied on and hijacked by algorithms whose artificial intelligence serves mercantile ends.
