Ingrid Cogne is an artist, facilitator, and researcher working across choreography, visual arts and academia. Focusing on the dramaturgy of existing or created situations, Cogne sees choreography as a way to create movement and suspension, positioning, and displacement in relation to economy and knowledge.
Since January 2019, Ingrid Cogne is a senior researcher at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, conducting the FWF Elise Richter PEEK project: The dramaturgy of Conversation (V709-G26).
In 2015-2018, Cogne was a post-doc researcher at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, where she initiated and developed Six Formats (funded by the Austrian Science Fund, FWF, PEEK, AR291-G21)—a project that questioned formats of presentation, communication, and circulation of knowledge in Arts-based research. In 2017-2018, Cogne conceptualized and created the Object of Communication (2018).
In 2014, Cogne was Artistic Director of Dansbyrån (SE). In 2015-2016, she was researcher for KiR—a project that focused on the re-activation of Dansbyrån’s archive into the circulation of its knowledge in Time.
In 2011-2015, Cogne was a junior researcher in the frame of PhD in Practice (Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, AT) and at the Doctoral School of Human and Social Sciences – CEAC (University of Lille, FR). In her PhD research “Displacement(s) as Method(s),” she questioned the notions of “displacement” on the physical, political, and perceptive levels and of “method” in between theory and practice, process and product, with the intention to (re-)create “time”. Cogne used the notions “situation”, “presence”, and “performativity” as filters to articulate her research between body, spoken, and written languages in a matrix composed of five methods, three practices, and the art piece WORK (2015).
Cogne is editor and author of the publications Dansbaren—The Mob without Flash (2016) and For and By Six Formats (2018).
