21 Oct 2020

For the sixth year in a row, ADAGP is associated with Le Fresnoy - National Studio of Contemporary Arts, in Tourcoing, to reward an emerging artist in the category Digital Art - Video Art.




The exhibition Panorama # 22 (October 15, 2020 - January 3, 2021), annual meeting of the creation at the Fresnoy - National Studio of Contemporary Arts, presents productions of young student artists as well as those of the invited professors.

More than 50 artworks (digital installations, video, sound, sculptures, photographs, performances, etc.) are available to the public in all the artistic fields explored at Fresnoy.

As part of this exhibition, the works of second-year students who produced digital works and videos were submitted to the ADAGP jury's deliberations.

This year, the jury, composed of Pascal Dombis (artist), Jean-Jacques Gay (curator, journalist and art critic), Carine Le Malet (head of programming and coordination at Scène de Recherche - ENS -Paris –Saclay) Léonard Martin, winner 2017 and Pierre Pauze, winner 2019, wanted to highlight the “face to face” man / machine vector of a strong aesthetic hybridization, which responds to our future relationships with digital worlds.

Among a powerful panorama dotted with fascinating artistic promises, jurors have distinguished


Yosra Mojtahedi

for her work

« L’E r o s a r b é n u s ».


Yosra MOJTAHEDI - L'E R O S A R B E N U S (détail du dessin) Production Le Fresnoy 

“This oxymoronic and innovative art piece, which attracts and repels, fascinates and alert, in an assumed technological baroque, combines soft robotics and ceramics, drawing and programming, sculpture and sensations in an artistic gesture that emerges from the darkness. "


The jury also grants a special mention to Cindy Coutant for her two-headed work composed of a film (Nina et les Robots) and an installation (Molamour), second stage of a committed research between arts and sciences towards a total work in the making. .


Yosra Mojtahedi receives an ADAGP endowment of 5,000 euros. Her work will also be presented on the walls of the ADAGP.

The two award-winning artists will benefit from a portrait filmed and broadcast on the Arte website.
