Clément Cogitore (born 1983 in Colmar, France) is a French contemporary artist and filmmaker. Combining film, video, installations and photographs, Cogitore questions the modalities of cohabitation between humankind and its own images and representations.

Early life and studies[edit]

Clément Cogitore grew up in Lapoutroie, in eastern France (Upper Rhine). Studying in Strasbourg at the Academy of Applied Arts and then at Le Fresnoy - Studio national des arts contemporains (French National Studio of Contemporary Art)[1], Clément Cogitore developed an artistic practice halfway between Cinema and Contemporary Art.

Career[edit]

Since 2011, Cogitore’s work has been screened and exhibited at the Palais de Tokyo, Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), Institute of Contemporary Arts (London)[2], Haus der Kulturen der Welt (Berlin)[3], MACRO (Rome)[4], Museum of Fine Arts (Boston), MoMA (New-York), MNBA (Québec)[5], SeMA Bunker (Seoul)[6], Kunsthaus Baselland (Basel)[7].

In 2010 his short movie Parmi nous was awarded the Grand Prize of the European First Film Award (Vevey)[8]. That same year his documentary movie Bielutine was selected for Cannes' Directors' Fortnight[9]. The following year he became resident of the Villa Medici, French Academy in Rome[10].

In 2015, his first feature film The Wakhan Front was selected at the Cannes international film festival – Critic’s week[11], awarded by the Gan Foundation[12]. That same year he won the BAL Prize for contemporary art[13]. In 2016, he won the SciencesPo Prize for contemporary art[14] and the 18th Ricard Foundation Prize for contemporary art[15]. In 2017, Cogitore released his documentary movie Braguino (Telluride, San Sebastian, Marseille, Toronto, Buenos Aires, Moscow festivals)[16].

In 2018, Clément Cogitore was awarded the Marcel Duchamp Prize for Contemporary Art, for his work The Evil Eye[17].

To celebrate its 350th anniversary, Cogitore will stage Jean-Philippe Rameau's opera ballet, Les Indes galantes at the Opéra National de Paris. The première will take place in September 2019[18].
