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.

Distant Movements at NODE

Do you want to join us to examine what it means to «dance together» in an environment where bodies are entangled with machines?

Join us Oct 8 16h CEST for a 20 min long Distant Movements session in the frame of the Choreographic Coding Lab Online meetup organised by Naoto Hiéda for NODE20.

8/10 16h – 16h20 Paris time

Distant Movements @NODE projected in Naxos Greenhouse

Online. Open to all.

You will be guided into movement by Daniel Pinheiro, Muriel Piqué and Annie Abrahams.
We will priviledge:
an inner gaze / body awareness
slowness, in order to favor the perception of the experience
awareness of the presence of others, even if you don’t see them – the session will be recorded – an eye (the webcam) looks at you all and unites you in the interface.

You can’t do anything wrong

screencapture of the session

We will start with an activation of the body through “balancing” with the eyes open – we will close our eyes …

During the last 10 minutes only qualitative incentives:
don’t forget to breathe
your toes move too
remember flexibility

Lockdown – Rencontre Pandémique

Photo made during the performance in the Third Space Network

August 01 2020 – 01 September 2020
LOCKDOWN
Vernissage 01/08/2020 19h.
4 Rue de Trupet,
La Trimouille, 86290 France.
L’entrée n’est pas autorisée sans masque.

A T E L I E R M E L U S I N E will reopen its doors to visitors with the exhibition LOCKDOWN. This specifically curated show features work by Carl Abrahamsson, Annie Abrahams, Annett & Annett-Parish, Nadia Perrotta and Lesly Pierrepaul. It deals with experiences connected directly to the COVID 19 pandemic; confinement in a digital age, suffocation and the salvation of breath and breathing, the reality of suffering from poor political leadership during a crisis and the mystical elements around illness and hypoxemia.

Une fois la porte fermée, on est confronté au bruit troublant d’une personne qui s’efforce de respirer et à un rythme cardiaque rythmé mais déformé… Inutile de dire que ce n’est pas un espace confortable. …
… Ici, dans cette galerie, le processus normalement inconscient de la respiration est soudain au premier plan, au centre et urgent dans sa “nullité” râpeuse.
Review by Elizabeth Stewart.

Dans Rencontre Pandémique, son, 4.50 min, Annie Abrahams a mélangé ses respirations avec des battements de coeur déformés générés par ordinateur. Le fichier sonore a été utilisé le 23 mai 2020 dans Pandemic Encounters, une installation de performance en réseau de Paul Sermon en collaboration avec Randall Packer, Gregory Kuhn, le Third Space Network et les conférences de Leonardo Laser.

(Un)Distance ELOrlando

logo (un)distance

An ELOrlando 2020: Virtual Edition Panel.
Friday July 17, 1pm EDT, 19h Paris time.

A videorecording of the event here.
Log file of the zoom chat here.

You can download the framapad as a .pdf – saved on July 17 21H Paris time.

What does it mean to be together apart? How can we create and share ideas from an (un)distance?
In this experimental panel we will explore the topic “(un)distance” as a way to b(e/r)ing us together and to share ideas over various (di)stances and (di)scourses. We will center around  long-distance writing practices, and will self-reflexively discuss how effective on-line community discussion works.

You could have participated watching the video conference while at the same time joining in a collaborative reariting on a framapad.
If you click on the clock icon topright in the framapad you can see a cinamatographic image of the reawriting – a historique dynamique.

The framapad is a site for your thoughts and longer discussions, for questioning/commenting/digressing/feeding and disturbing the (un)distance elo panel before, during and after its effectuation.

two snapshots of the reariting in framapad

The panel will be moderated by Annie Abrahams and Anna Nacher on zoom, Deena Larsen and Johannah Rodgers in the framapad.
The panel participants are Eugenio Tisselli, Kirill Azernyy, Renee Carmichael, and Roderick Coover.
