About the show

"In Situ" by Thomas Cheneseau. January 20 - March 20 2018.

Thomas Cheneseau’s artistic research explores the question of the social networks and the digital identity under the angle of the artistic diversion.
Cheneseau pursues a work of sharing through artistic communities 2.0, producing series of animated images, videos and on-line performance.
For the Widget Art Gallery Cheneseau worked using an App on his device - rather than a software on pc - respecting the identity of the WAG itself, in order to create a perceptive noise of the room. By transparency and deformation of the angles of the WAG interior architecture, the gif-animation draws another vision of the showroom space.

About the WAG

Due to our needs that seem to be increasingly handheld, WAG was born on 2009! The Widget Art Gallery is a mini single art gallery room fitting into people's pocket (suitable for all mobile platforms). Every month, the WAG hosts a solo digital art exhibition related to its dynamic site-specific context. So the WAG works both as a sort of kunsthall showing temporary exhibitions and also as museum conserving all the past shows inside an online archive that creates a permanent collection.
