The marotte, as a vector of exploration, finds various modalities of appearance. The French term dada was already “swindled” and “squeezed” of significations for almost a century. We have this other homonym, marotte, which should find its own way in between profound study and monomania.

The selection presents an almost palpable uncertainty of the artist-obsession relation, as is the auto-referential approach of Olga Koch or the mnemo-traumatic one of Vehanush Topchyan.
