"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.
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.
