Animated GIF. Based on Magazine Cover: Le cœr à barbe, Paris, April 1922
“In this series IOCOSE take the objects of the DADA magazine cover Le cœr à barbe (Paris, France, 1922) and move them forward. It is part of a larger series of works in which IOCOSE move the world forward, one object at the time”.
IOCOSE are a collective of four artists and have been working as a group since 2006. IOCOSE’s art investigates the after-failure moment of the teleological narratives of technological and cultural development, in regards to both their enthusiastic and pessimistic visions. They have been exhibiting internationally at several art institutions and festivals, including Venice Biennale (2011, 2013), Tate Modern (London, 2011), Science Gallery (Dublin, 2012) Jeu de Paume (Paris, 2011), FACT (Liverpool, 2012), Transmediale (Berlin, 2013, 2015), and featured in publications such as Wired magazine, The Creators Project, Flash Art, Neural, Liberation, Der Spiegel, El Pais.
