Stof / Poussière / Dust

“stof” Nederlands with translation

Suzon Fuks made a video for “stof” the text I wrote for her “BE LIKE BODY—OBSOLETE #4” project. She asked 6 artists writers to responded to the questions:
How do we advance technology without giving up our sense of humanity?
What does it mean to become / be obsolete?

I am very happy to contribute to this beautiful interesting project with 5 other writers from very different cultural backgrounds and languages: Amaranta Osorio, Nasim Khosravi, Parvathy Baul, Ya-Ling Peng and Younghee Park. Their videos can be found here https://vimeo.com/suzon

For this project Suzon does a performance and made an e-book and audio track. The performance will happen on Sunday 27 June 2021, and will be followed by the artist talk with all six writers.
You have to book for the performance and talk onlinefestival.themagdalenaproject.org/be-like-body-obsolete-1

Moving Paintings – Centre Pompidou expo

19/05 – 19/11 2021 Moving Paintings (1998) dans Sans Objet, exposition en ligne Centre Pompidou.
Commissaire Philippe Bettinelli.

Cette exposition en ligne regroupe neuf créations s’étendant des années 1990 – qui ont vu les premiers artistes du « net art » développer l’idée qu’un site internet pouvait-être une œuvre à part entière – jusqu’à nos jours. Elle propose d’explorer cette forme de la création numérique, qu’elle se construise en référence à l’histoire de la peinture ou en explorant la spécificité des outils numériques.

Avec les oeuvres de Miltos Manetas, Juha van Ingen, Annie Abrahams, Jan Robert Leegte, Carin Klonowski, Jonas Lund, Rafaël Rozendaal, Nicolas Sassoon et Claude Closky.

ELO 2021 Utterings

Utterings Performance: Supra Semiotics. 30 min.
May 25th 2021 20h Paris time.
Attunement: https://jaapblonk.bandcamp.com/album/antonin-artaud-by-jaap-blonk

from 3 min. on

Utterings Panel: Toward a Supra-Semiotic Telepresent Communication.
May 26th 2021 14h30 Paris time.
Members of our group will collectively discuss what we have pragmatically learned and experienced in our performance research thus far. During the panel we make a writing pad available, where the audience can collectively read and write their thoughts on utterings as a communication form. Utterings will join and continue the discussion on the writing pad in the last part of the panel.

panel starts at 5 min.

Utterings is a networked performance and research group whose members gather online and, while blindfolded, engage in utterings as communication. We want to create an on the fly “new” language, that forwards attention, trust and feelings, above rationality. Put another way, we seek to develop a shared, experiential, supra-semiotic form of communication based on our ongoing performance history with each other. Michael Bakhtin’s concept of the “utterance event” as a node of intersection between lived, present-tense communication and atemporal, semiotic meaning has informed our research. Over the past year, we have enacted eight performances online “at” festivals “in” Nantes (France), Birmingham (UK), Linz (Austria), and London (UK).

COVID E-lit

COVID E-lit exhibition. May 1st 2021 Opening.
Included is Pandemic Encounter by Annie Abrahams and Breathing by Utterings.

Annie Abrahams | Pandemic Encounter.
Breathing is usually an unconscious process shared by all persons, but during the pandemic, it has become a common source of anxiety. This audio track exteriorizes the raw, raspy discomfort of our new reality. It mixes the artist’s respiration; computer-generated, distorted heartbeats; and a sound piece called “Silences” by Frans van Lent, which captures the silences of twenty artists from all around the world.

Utterings | Breathing.
Confronts the viewer with a “being” that is the result of an intricate, active, interlaced communicative structure in which both humans and machines are involved in a process of shared auditory exchange and attention. Through the mixing of six audio and video streams emerges an image of a phantom-like breathing, pulsating entity that thrives through affection, attention, glitches, delays and even voids.

Utterings is a networked performance and research group. Engaging in utterings as communication, they build on solo’s, duo’s, chorals and silence while blindfolded and connected at a distance, attempting to go beyond borders and closures created by language.

UTTERINGS is a networked performance and research group composed of Annie Abrahams (FR), Daniel Pinheiro (PT), Constança Carvalho Homem (PT), Curt Cloninger (US), Nerina Cocchi (BE) and Derek Piotr (US).

March 26, 17h30 – 18h00: Discussion with Annie Abrahams (Artist) and Helen Varley Jamieson (artist)
Before the First is a response to the many claims of online “firsts” in 2020. Annie Abrahams, Helen Varley Jamieson and Suzon Fuks aim to draw attention to the long and rich history of online performance, which stretches back to the earliest days of the internet. For some of the artists in Before the first, the performance shown was not their very first online performance. Many early works were never documented, or for other reasons later works have been used. Before the First is a brief glimpse of the diversity of online performance created before 2020. The video is only a very tiny sample of this field of creative work; it is a snapshot and provocation to further exploration of the field, rather than an historical record.

You can watch the recording of our presentation on youtube.
