Artists Remake the World
The Author

The Author : Zoé Cosson


In 2012, Zoé Cosson joins the Reims Higher School of Art and Design where she develops a hybrid practice between experimental video, documentary and writing. Her works explore the ways of how the environment evolves on particular and circumscribed territories and facing that, the movements likely to shape them. After obtaining her DNSEP in 2018, her video Salle d’attente is exhibited at the FRAC Champagne-Ardennes. The same year, she joins the Creative writing Master of The Havre-Rouen Higher School of Art and Design where she works on a non-fictional novel based on iconographic archives, memories and interviews of the people in a village based in a valley of Ariège. An extract of this non-fictional novel is published in the Artichaut review of 2019. At the same time, she continues to collaborate with young artists, in particular with Firs Laid which publishes the story of her encounter with the Paris Center for Cosmological Physics astrophysicists in order to accompany the exhibition Ce qui ne tourne pas, tombe.
