For this ninth edition of the Open des Artistes de Monaco, Daniel Boeri invites artists from all horizons to realise plastic creations on a concept.
Videos, sculptures, drawings, collage, installations, paintings… the Entrepôt gallery is giving the artists carte blanche. The only requirement is that their works must be no bigger than 1m x 1m.

Selected works will go on display at the gallery from 30 January to 25 February, when the Open des Artistes will official close with an evening ceremony at which the prize winners will be announced by Mr Boeri and the jury.

Theme:
"Paradox of the Ô! The Ô is never silent.
A reflection around the use of the Ô.
Grapheme of the Latin and Vietnamese alphabet, we will focus on its vocal range.
The Ô, praises, challenges, apostrophe, acclaim, invites action by the body. It expresses a spontaneous reaction and attracts attention.
Paradoxically, by its simplicity this grapheme, invites the multiplication of gestures.
Vocal call, action, gesture of interpellation, apostrophe
Ô expresses surprise, admiration, or fear or dread;
Whatever the feeling it expresses a re-action, through a gesture
It eliminates passivity, it springs into action, spontaneous or considered."
