Annie Abrahams

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.

Utterings is a networked performance and research group whose members gather online and, while blindfolded, engage in utterings as communication. They want to create an on the fly “new” language, that forwards attention, trust and affects, above rationality.
Utterings is a collaborative attempt to go beyond the borders and closures created by languages, opening up and transgressing these in a performance that probes meaning through pre-language communication and formerly un-inhabited expressions.
In Utterings communication is not approached as a transmission of information, ruled by code or abstract conventions, but as connection through affection, attention, glitches, delays and even voids.

Members of Utterings are Annie Abrahams (FR), Daniel Pinheiro (PT), Constança Carvalho Homem (PT), Curt Cloninger (US), Nerina Cocchi (BE) and Derek Piotr (US).

Utterings – soundperformance for audioblast #8

On the 22nd of February 16h30 Paris time during the festival Audioblast #8, Utterings sera diffusé en direct en ligne et sur un système de spatialisation radiophonique installé à la Plateforme Intermédia, 4 Boulevard Léon Bureau, 44200 Nantes. Organisation APO-33.
Online listen here: Concerts en ligne. 22-23/02 2020.

Utterings is a project by Annie Abrahams (FR) and Daniel Pinheiro (PRT) with Constança Carvalho Homem (PRT), Curt Cloninger (US), Nerina Cocchi (BE) and Derek Piotr (US) as invited artists and collaborators.
Technical assistance: Jan de Weille.
Since this event Utterings is a band.

Utterings is a sound-only networked performance experiment where six artists commit to a 30 min long exchange across distance. The artists gather online and, while blindfolded, they engage in utterings as communication, building on solo’s, duo’s, chorals and silence, creating an on the fly “new” language, that forwards attention, trust and affects above rationality. Six sound streams (no instruments used) are interlaced and entangled in one single polyphonic composition shared live in the audioblast program. The protocol for this performance will be written collectively in the week before the performance.

Protocol and references for Utterings here: https://annuel2.framapad.org/p/r.d6b50a58404bb8269f53ffe00d5a14ff (Pauline Oliveros, Mikhail Bakhtin, Andrei Bely, Maree Cunnington, Michel De Certeau, Andrea Olsen, Meredith Monk, Maurizio Lazzarato and the bible.)

testing blindfolds

As an individual it is very difficult to address the problems related to all kind of global emissions. Of course you can act privately, but we need more.
Utterings is a collaborative attempt to go beyond the borders and closures created by languages, opening up and transgressing these in a performance that probes meaning through pre-language communication and formerly un-inhabited expressions.
Communication not as transmission of information, ruled by a code or abstract conventions, but connected with affection and attention will counter data imperialism and rationalist exploitation.

how to go beyond glossolalie? what will be the intention? is attunement enough? if we manage to avoid meaning we may discover something
Martine Neddam: Glossolalia is ‘dancing with words’. Dance first, before moving beyond dancing.
Igor Stromajer: An extremely intriguing concept. Who knows, perhaps you don’t even have to go beyond glossolalia. If glossolalia is done “right”, it already goes beyond … itself.

Mikhail Bakhtin has a posse!
