Une chambre en ville

Ana Jotta

With Une Chambre en Ville (A room in town), Ana Jotta intervenes in a Parisian apartment located near the Cité internationale des arts, an artists’ residence space, to create a surprising and domestic work of art, echoing The Room, the name given to the first room of the exhibition La Fugitive at the Crédac.

A fugitive from all sorts of artistic confines and labels, Ana Jotta’s protean practice explores every medium as well as techniques traditionally associated with the so-called minor (mostly female) arts. She appropriates objects, iconographies and titles and redefines her own work for every exhibition. In Une Chambre en ville (A room in town), her artist-in-residence flat open to the public from 15 October through 27 November at the Cité internationale des arts as part of the Festival d’Automne (Paris arts festival), she put up a note left behind by the fugitive: “She left me a closed notebook, with pages assembled by a discrete gold painted lining that she sewed with a yellow thread spelling out the word ‹ DORMIR › (‹ SLEEP ›). On the back: ‹Pour Toi , de Moi › (‹For You, from Me ›).
