From 1999 to 2004 Etienne Cliquet has initiated and moderated the
Teleferique collective with Sonia Marques: an Internet server dedicated to
the downloading of program and digital projects made by artists and
programmers. The interface of Teleferique is based on files' repository
with an aesthetic by default. Since 2004, his artistic research has focused
on the practices of folding in relation with Internet and computing and he
develops an analogy between the fragility of folding, the versatility of
Internet and the precariousness of our life in the contemporary world, at
the same time by folding referring to fold everything: not only paper but
information and senses, too.
The last part of public presentation Etienne will introduce his recent
artistic project called âDatacenters of Artâ. The project came out from his
long- term and ongoing research in the datacenters, both in France and
Canada. It considers the infrastructures of Internet as places for art and
new museums/ libraries in our contemporary world. During his stay in
Yerevan Etienne will continue this research.

Venue: Armenian Open University, Department of Fine Arts

Webring is a collective online exhibition of young artists from different
countries led by Etienne Cliquet and Sonia Marques (artist-professor in the
Fine arts school of Limoges, FR). The project will bring together about 14
online works by students/young artists and 4 online works by international
artists and it will be part of the programming of the virtual space of the
Museum of Jeu de Paume in Paris (15th of March, 2012).
Webring - the online exhibition is structured as a ring and firstly it
refers to the Webring format from the early Web in 1990âs. A Webring (a
ring on the web) is a collection of different independent websites which
are linked to each other by the form of a circle. Today, the Webrings have
almost disappeared but we want to exhume this format, rethink and reshape
its interface with a radically different approach and artistic perceptions.
On the one hand the workshop at the Department of Fine Arts of AOU will be
devoted to the realization of online works of art and the discussion
between the Armenian participants and the French students (Margaux Berrard,
MÃlanie Muratet-Campos, Julien Alien) upon the issues of the project on the
other hand. Four concepts related to the symbol of the ring will be
developed during the Workshop sustained by different tales, legends and
stories from several countries and epochs: the cycle of the ring, the
haphazard and the ring, the community of the ring, the ring and the
At the end of the Workshop, each group (3-4 people) will try to conceive
and complete one or two web projects. The technology (technical basis of
the creation of a Webpage) will be used to support contemporary artistic
ideas. So, it is not a technological course and we are not looking for
technological effects. The best projects are often the simplest.
