Clément Cogitore

15.2. —
28.4.2019

With this two-part exhibition from the Paris-based artist Clément Cogitore (b. 1983, Colmar) the Kunsthaus Baselland presents the first solo exhibition in Switzerland by the 2018 Prix Marcel Duchamp winner. In a practice that has developed over many years, the French film-maker and photographer deals in-depth with the question of how pictures from advertising, entertainment, social networks or even rituals, secrets and illusory worlds all work, these pictures which occupy an active role in the creation of ways of life. With a variety of works the first exhibition sequence will offer an overview of his work in recent years, while in a second part from mid-May his new work The Evil Eye, with which he won the 2018 Prix Marcel Duchamp, will, for the first time, be the focus of an institutional presentation.
