ELO 2021 Utterings

Utterings Performance: Supra Semiotics. 30 min.

Utterings Panel: Toward a Supra-Semiotic Telepresent Communication.
May 26th 2021 14h30 Paris time. Zoom link:
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.

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.

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.

3G Constallations #10 + méthodologie

One year ago we: the group 3G(enerations) Alix Desaubliaux, Pascale Barret and Annie Abrahams, started a research project called Constallations. Using challenges and surprises, we defied each other in nine sessions of what Annie called contemporary net art, Pascale a non-binary inclusive laboratory and Alix performative & collaborative explorations.

ISELP, Institut d’Art Contemporain, invited 3G to come to Brussels for their 10th, this time real-life, session.
Saturday, Mai 25, 16h you are welcome to meet the three artists and Sandra Bébié-Valérian of OUDEIS at the Boulevard de Waterloo in Brussels.
Sandra will give a short talk where she analyses the project in the frame of OUDEIS’ Autorama project. Pascale, Alix and Annie will present their recently written Methodology of Constallations* and will try to translate it’s essence to the real space of the exhibition Waiting to blossom *Constallations by Pascale Barret.
Could be an object, a performance, a reading, a text, an installation …. or a mix of all this.

Constallations is devoid of a goal and has no predetermined path. Constallations is what we are when we give up our personal objectives and, when, based on our own history and skills, we tackle a challenge prepared by one of the group.
Constallations is made of travels through things one doesn’t control, of jumps in the void. Constallations is an exploration full of unexpected discoveries.

Constallations is a learning tool / a practice radically open to everything.
Constallations is a concrete utopia – on a small scale, and temporary, it must be said – but it is, and so carries a hope for a different society.
It’s a perspective.
Constallations is a path, an adventure, a chemistry, a soup that upsets habits and creates links.

* The Methodology of Constallations will also be available in English and French on the Constallations website after the 25th.

Digital Canon (1960–2000) of the Netherlands

Nice to find out my work Being Human (1997 – 2007) is part of the Digital Canon (1960–2000) of the Netherlands, yes!
With among others Michel Waisvisz, Martine Neddam, Peter Struycken, JODI, Peter Luining, Jan Robert Leegte, Steina, Jeffrey Shaw …

The Digital Canon was compiled by LIMA media art platform in 2018, in collaboration with Josephine Bosma, Martijn van Boven, Annet Dekker, Sandra Fauconnier and Jan Robert Leegte.
The primary objective of the project is to add these digital works to the collective cultural memory and to fuel the discussion about the selection and preservation of digital art. 

Experts from the field of digital culture selected twenty of the most prominent and influential works made on Dutch soil by artists who lived or worked here over a long period of time.

Being Human is the name of a collection of dynamic, interlinked, net specific works in which Annie Abrahams explores the possibilities and limits of online communication.

Digital Canon artist Annie Abrahams is excited to see the work of Michel Waisvisz on www.digitalcanon.nl. Read her personal statement about his iconic 1984 work The Hands below: “It was so nice to see Michel Waisvisz in the Digital Canon. When I was still studying biology (end seventies) I saw several performances by him (in Middelburg with Moniek Toebosch and in the Apollohuis in Eindhoven with, I think, Paul Panhuyzen). It might have been my first experience with art outside the context of an official museum. I loved the freedom, the possibilities to mix different art domains (and technology), the improvisations and Michel’s relation to the stage and his instruments. In hindsight I think this contributed largely in me going to an art school a few years later.” – Annie Abrahams
