COSMO by Gilles Massot


Based on the concept of the constant self-recording mode, also known as COS•MO, this is the catalogue of the exhibition presented in 2013 at the Institute of Contemporary Arts that gathered 29 artists presenting their understanding of the concept, whether through images, sound, or interactive installation.

About Gilles Massot

Gilles Massot adopts a multidisciplinary process to establish links between narratives, occurrences and parts of the world. Based in Singapore since 1981, his book Bintan, Phoenix of the Malay Archipelago (2003) deeply influenced his artistic work, which now often deals with history and ethnology, while his conceptual concerns are in the theory of photography and the phenomenon of “recording” the revolutionary medium initiated.

His current pictorial project is centred on research about Jules Itier and the first photographs of Asia made in the 1840s, while his theoretical research explores the relations between the history of photography and that of quantum mechanics. A recipient of the French award Chevalier des Arts et des Lettres, his work has been presented in over 50 exhibitions in France and Asia.
