Ingrid Cogne (born 1977 in Dijon, FRA)
Artist-choreographer based in Stockholm, Cogne sees choreography as a way to create movement and suspension, circulation and time, positioning and displacement in relation to Economy, Knowledge, Work and Individuals. Obsessed by the “in between” and what constitutes the dynamics of meeting, Cogne focuses on the process and the dramaturgy of existing or created situations. Labor, consistency and time are central. With soft provocation for movement in representations and structures, she is slowly, progressively shaking, shifting the perception(s) and the perspective(s). Her artistic proposals problematize the relationship and create a floating definition of the positions and status subject-object of both the artist and the spectator(s).
Her work has been presented in Sweden at the House of Dance Stockholm, Arkitekturmuseet, Supermarket-Kulturhuset, Made Festival, Norrlandsoperan, Gothenburg festival in Sweden. She has taken part in several international residencies such as Pact Zollverein (DE), Fabrik Potsdam (DE), PAF (FRA), Pompidou - Metz (FRA), L’Institut Tokyo (JP). She has been invited to several conferences: the 2013 Arts Conference (Eötvös Loránd University, Budapest); On artistic research conference, EARN researchers at DOCUMENTA(13); (re-)thinking improvisation (2011, Inter Arts Center, Lund University); Bodily Phenomenology (2010, Södertörn University); Symposium Narratives of Health and Illness – with forskning (2010, Uppsala University); Self-Organized Conference (2009, INPEX, Stockholm).
Ingrid Cogne also works as dramaturg or performer for other artists.
In October 2011, Cogne started a PhD in practice at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna. Cogne's project is titled ”Displacement(s) as Method(s)”. Since November 2012, her research is being developed at the CEAC Lille 3 as well.
