Distant Feeling(s) #9 / Past Convention

On Dec. 30, 2021 Distant Feeling(s) #9 integrated Bjørn Magnhildøen‘s project Past Convention
.. a public convention announced after it has already taken place. It deals with time as a convention, a protocol of interaction we have with the world.

Distant Feeling(s) #9, Sunday, December 26, 6PM – 6.15PM GMT+1

DF#9 is the fifth annual activation of Distant Feeling(s), again sharing time together, online, without speaking and with our eyes closed.

We invite all interested to take part in this recurring activation of Distant Feeling(s). To come together in an electronically powered energetic flow – (re)thinking the conditions of a present moment.

Féminisme, performance, thèse

Le féminisme dans les vies et les œuvres d’artistes de la performance en Europe et en Amérique du Nord entre 1980 et 2010.

Merci Floris Taton. Le 29 janvier 2018 nous avions un entretien de 1h37 via skype. Enfin je peux te lire.

Résumé :
Depuis les années 1970, le féminisme inspire les artistes de la performance. Cette décennie pionnière est très documentée, mais qu’en est-il pour les trois décennies suivantes ? Le féminisme dans les vies et les œuvres d’artistes de la performance en Europe et en Amérique du Nord entre 1980 et 2010 propose, par le biais de vingt-cinq artistes dans dix-sept pays un état des lieux du féminisme de la deuxième et de la troisième vague. L’objectif de la recherche est d’éclairer les artistes de la performance et leurs productions au regard d’enjeux féministes. Trois volets sont abordés : les prémices des parcours des artistes, les sources et formes de l’influence féministe et sa place dans les œuvres.

La puissance de l’art d’Annie Abrahams est aussi forte que son travail est sous-évalué.” :)

Van Gogh TV – Distant Feelings

12/11 – 05/12 2021, Van Gogh TV, Piazza Virtuale*, exhibition** at the Künstlerhaus Bethanien in Berlin and online.

For the first time now, Künstlerhaus Bethanien is presenting the material remaining from that large-scale art project in an exhibition. Original works, video recordings, sketches, plans, photos, and other historical material will be on view, alongside technical relics of “Piazza virtuale”.

Other works by Mieko Shiomi, Miranda July, Fred Forest, Yann van der Cruyssen and Annie Abrahams/Daniel Pinheiro will also be shown in the exhibition in order to contextualize the work of Van Gogh TV.

Distant Feeling(s) – Van Gogh TV installed in the exhibition.

* Piazza Virtuale by the artists’ group Van Gogh TV was not only the biggest art project ever to have been on TV – from a contemporary perspective, the project was also a precursor to present-day social media. The ground-breaking television event, which took place during documenta IX in 1992, was a TV experiment in which users could create media content themselves.

Sur le pad ells rédigeront leurs notes, réflexions et digressions les unes pêle-mêle parmi les autres et ells réagiront à celles des autres participant.e.s. Après 40 min. de licriture, nous nous reconnecterons pour discuter du processus.

Open Publish – reariting “webchoreography”

On Thursday November 18 14h Paris time Constallationsss* proposes a Reariting workshop during the Open Publishing Fest***  (OPF Nov 8-19)
Duration 60 min.
Starting point will be a text related to the body, the screen, the interface and dance.

If you want to rearite with us on the 18th, please write me at bram.org@gmail.com to get the url for meeting.
Info : https://constallationsss.hotglue.me/?OpenPublish/

The workshop will start with a 10 min long explanation and attunement on zoom.
Then the participants will go to a collective writing pad where they will find a selected text that they start reading individually. On the pad they write their notes, reflections, questions, digressions – the ones through the others – and react to those of the others.
After 40 min of reariting we will shortly reconnect in zoom to discuss the process.

this is not about producing a text together, but about using reariting as a technique to think through a text together.

*Constallationsss is an online art / research group started in 2018 by Annie Abrahams, Alix Desaubliaux and Pascale Barret. In 2020 Alice Lenay, Carin Klonowski and Gwendoline Samidoust joined. The group uses the internet, challenges and surprises as tools for what Annie called contemporary net art, Pascale a non-binary inclusive laboratory, and Alix performative and collaborative explorations. Their methodology: constallations.hotglue.me/?methodologie

Performing Alchorithms – IUR

Recently I posted a short article Performing Alchorithms? on the website of the Institute of Unnecessary Research* founded by Anna Dumitriu in 2004.

In the article I explain the background of the invitation to participate in a private Alcho performing session. Alcho = Performing Alchorithms = Sharing processes through evolving protocols.

In Alcho** Annie Abrahams asks: Is it possible to create an algorithm that includes human behaviour, that evolves over time and in the process integrates aspects of the personalities of all the participating individuals? Because there are humans involved Annie thinks the project will probably turn out to be an erratic, iterative, evolving, experiential happening.

While at the start I was interested in the evolving of a performance when treated as an algorithm executed by humans, this interest later moved to the written traces; to the written instruction sets, as markers of the evolving Alcho processed through humans by writing and performing.

Choreography/algorithm by Naoto Hieda*** after Alcho performance during the Alchorisma**** platform presentation 01/07/21

Do you also want to experience Alcho? Contact me privately and I will also perform for you.

——–

* The Institute of Unnecessary Research, or IUR as it is often known, presents a new paradigm in the way artists are engaging with the world through trans-disciplinary arts practices. Part arts collective, part think tank, the IUR is a global hub for researchers and artists working experimentally, and deeply engaged with curiosity-driven research.

** Alcho has originally been developped with RYBN during Alchorisma: a work-session organised by Z33 and Constant in December 2018.

*** Naoto Hieda lately wrote about Best Practices in Contemporary Dance a queer form of conversation between technology and bodies.

**** Alchorisma alludes to the relationships between algorithms, charisma, rhythm, alchemy and karma. It looks at integrating cosmogenetic views with the charisma surrounding technology, at ways to infect existing algorithmic models with ideologies that acknowledge the importance of co-existence with non-human entities.
