The piece presented by Annie Abrahams (Distant Feeling(s) #1) continues the research of an artist who challenges the relational utopias attributed to the internet by creating performances which reveal empty yet precious moments, and the banality of interpersonal relations. The performance links Abrahams to two other artists (Daniel Pinheiro & Lisa Parra); from three different locations the three seek to communicate sensations and emotions. Cinzia Cremona (one of the curators) in ARSHAKE  Oct. 3 2016.

Je ne m’exprime pas sur qu’est-ce que c’est la poésie électronique, numérique etc. Vous êtes écrivains, poètes, étudiants intéressées. Ça me suffit, vous écrirez à partir de votre idée de la poésie. Et puisque vous écrirai ensemble dans / avec un même apparatus nous aurons un mélange d’approches, un métissage, une hybridation. Vous ne serez pas le seul auteur. Il faut inventer des nouvelles langages (plusieurs fois) pour comprendre les possibilités et la radicalité de l’écriture en ligne tel que je la comprends. Extrait du texte de préparation d’Annie Abrahams.

besides, the city is not a tree – #6pmeu

objectsMoney6PMeu besides, the city is not a tree

July 22, 6pm (CET). A  performance by Annie Abrahams and Martina Ruhsam.
In collaboration with OUDEIS, laboratoire pour les arts numériques, électroniques et médiatiques in Le Vigan, France. Live documentation and reactions via https://twitter.com/oudeis_levigan.
Streaming Ivan Chabanaud / mosaika.tv. Duration around 20 min.

A follow-up of Martina and Annie’s Turbulence commission besides, the person I am becoming.

On Object Agency. Collected words and objects – overheard phrases, poetry, academic citations, a piece of concrete, foam, money, a lamp. What if objects ? …

For besides, the person I am becoming, for one month we collected text – overheard phrases, poetry, magazine, academic citations and objects. While preparing we decided the objects should not be personal, not be too beautiful, as ordinary, casual, daily as possible. We wanted the objects to act as much as the words we selected from our collection. This resulted in what Igor Stromajer called a “theory-meditation“. https://vimeo.com/131117816 For besides, the city is not a tree we want to try out another more narrative version of the text collection, to speed up the rhythm and to see what meaning might arise from such a text object layering.

Event in the frame of 6PM Your Local Time Europe: a distributed contemporary art exhibition, taking place all over Europe in art institutions, galleries and artist studios at the same time, and documented online under the same hashtag.

Watch the performance here : http://bram.org/besides. While watching, please post images, text and videos on your Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #6pmeu. The images feed will be transmitted in real time to www.6pmyourlocaltime.com.

6PM Your Local Time is curated by Fabio Paris for Link Art Center. More information http://www.linkartcenter.eu/archives/3580.

Press Release CyPosium – the book

New Book Explores Live Performance on the Internet

A new book exploring the field of cyberformance – live performance events that connect remote participants via the internet – offers a variety of perspectives on this multi-disciplinary live art form.

CyPosium – the book has been edited by Annie Abrahams and Helen Varley Jamieson.
Its contributors are Adriene Jenik, Alan Sondheim, Alberto Vazquez, Annie Abrahams, Auriea Harvey and Michaël Samyn, Cherry Truluck, Clara Gomes, Helen Varley Jamieson, James Cunningham, Joseph DeLappe, Liz Bryce, Maria Chatzichristodoulou, Maja Delak and Luka Prinčič, Miljana Perić, Rob Myers, Roger Mills, Ruth Catlow, Stephen A. Schrum and Suzon Fuks.

CyPosium – the book is published by Link Editions, in partnership with La Panacée, Montpellier, as part of “Open”, a series of catalogues, essay collections and pamphlets co-published with partner institutions. It is available as a print-on-demand paperback, e-book and downloadable PDF.

CyPosium – the book presents selected material from the CyPosium, a one-day online symposium organised in October 2012 to discuss cyberformance. Artists from a range of backgrounds have experimented in this field for as long as they have had access to the internet, and the CyPosium sought to remember and celebrate some of this ephemeral and pioneering work.The 12-hour event consisted of online presentations and facilitated discussions, and attracted an audience from around the world who engaged in a lively, vibrant real-time conversation.
CyPosium – the book continues and expands on this discussion by presenting texts, chat log excerpts, discussion transcripts, edited email conversations, creative chat excerpt essays and illustrations from the event, along with responses to the event.

CyPosium – the book will be of interest to practitioners, students and researchers of digital and online arts. While its focus is live performance, the contributors hail from a wide range of practice both online and offline, and their writing illustrates the hybrid nature of contemporary arts involving digital technologies. Music, dance, poetry, sound art and the visual arts all feature, as well as entertainment and social practices such as computer games, virtual worlds and online dating. Common themes that emerged during the CyPosium are also present in the book, such as the changing role of the audience; intimacy in the online environment; and mortality. This breadth of form and content reflects the ever-increasing ubiquity of the internet and digital technologies in our daily lives as well as our arts practices.

Table ronde Silence Vert

oudeis
Samedi 08 décembre, à partir de 18h00 / Chapelle de la Condamine / 11 rue du Mûrier / Le Vigan
Silence Vert table ronde rassemblant Annie Abrahams, Ruth Catlow, Pascal Nicolas-Le Strat, Alessandro Ludovico, Manuel Fadat et Art-Act (Gaspard et Sandra Bébié-Valérian) organisé par OUDEIS.

A partir de Silence Vert, des œuvres et installations, des problématiques soulevées, des perspectives ouvertes, il est proposé aux intervenants de la table ronde, du lieu de leur champ, de leurs actions et de leurs positionnements, de s’intéresser à la question des pratiques artistiques « conçues comme contre-pouvoirs constituants » (l’expression est empruntée à P.N. Lestrat).

Performance is Reality

12 11 2012 6pm Global Concept Exchange – Collaboration & Community.
Invitation Randall Packer, CallArts Open Source Studio.
Guest speakers: Marc Garrett, and Ruth Catlow, Furtherfield.org, with Annie Abrahams, Helen Varley Jamieson, Nathaniel Stern, Andy Deck.

Performance is Reality.
“If there was any doubt about intimacy in the telematic embrace, you just need to experience it for yourself. As Annie Abrahams pointed out – who led us in a telematic happening last Friday – it’s not really a theoretical question, it’s experiential. The simplicity of her thesis is staggering. You can question, analyze, and research this problem until the cows come home, but put twenty people in front of a webcam via video-conference, and well, the proof is in the pudding. All that was required to complete the moment was to be there, even though “being there” in the virtual space poses yet another theoretical can of worms.” Randall Packer in Up close and personal with Furtherfield.

Pendant l’exposition Training for A Better World d’Annie Abrahams au CRAC LR les médiatrices de cette exposition ont écrit des phrases collectées auprès du public sur un mur de l’exposition. Ce texte a été photographié et puis effacé.

Original 400 x 200 cm. Une image de ce texte (7207 x 3024 pixels) est à voir ici.

Est-ce que ce monde a besoin des phrases rassurantes ou plutôt de l’inverse? Pourquoi, comment, qui rassurer ?
A quatre, les femmes vont se pencher sur ces questions, se repencher sur le texte issu de l’exposition de l’automne dernier et si possible y donner voix.

Connection Protocols – Artefact Leuven

Angry Women Take 3 & 4, presented in Connection protocols by Constant as part of the Artefact Festival organised around the theme of The Social Contract in Stuk Leuven (Be) .
14/02 – 23/02 2012

Not only people but also bots, search engines and spiders abide by laws and agreements. Whether we email, surf or chat, rules and regulations have an effect on our daily lives and on the way we  move in public space. Which social behavior do governments, companies and regulators project on machines? What is the social contract written into standards and technological infrastructure?

In Connection Protocols, the Brussels-based arts lab Constant gathers research material on how people, machines and environments connect with each other. This collage  of artworks, notes, manuals, instructions, images and texts can be read as a publication that will be edited ‘live’ during the festival period. With this living collection that moves along the stairs of STUK, Constant tries to  balance ‘soft’ factors such as attraction, affection, similarity and curiosity with the prescriptive and indisputable character of formatting, contracts and ‘terms of use’ documents.

Effeuillages d’Ordinateurs

Jeudi 10 novembre 18h
salle dite “Le Dojo” – 3ème étage
au 108 rue de Bourgogne
Orléans

Effeuillages d’Ordinateurs
Participation gratuite limitée à 20 personnes
Inscription :  effeuillage@labomedia.org
Merci à Olivier Baudu pour l’image.

Organisation :
Annie Abrahams & Labomedia

L’intérieur d’un ordinateur m’a toujours semblé mystérieux, plein de tabous, presque un terrain interdit, un domaine qui ne me convenait pas, qui n’était pas convenable pour une fille.
Dans quelques jours j’ouvrirai pour la deuxième fois un ordinateur, je verrai ce qu’il a dans le ventre, je tripoterai ses entrailles, je le toucherai, j’enlèverai ce qu’il y a dedans.
Référence : Pourquoi avons-nous des difficultés à ouvrir un ordinateur et en changer le disque dur ?
