Image essay on ‘Training for a Better World’

Michael Szpakowski reviews Annie Abrahams’ exhibition with a photo essay combining photo documentation, self portraiture and simple lively drawings to capture the elements and atmospheres of networked interactions. V. enjoyable” Ruth Catlow on facebook.

Michael Szpakowski also wrote a review on Training for A Better World, my solo exhibition in the CRAC Sète for dvblog. He especially pays attention to the video installation called Angry Women :
There’s something both of portraiture and of the dance at work here, and a kind of found poetry too (which the moving image work has in common with the collaborative texts at the other end of the exhibition). The combination of iron control, planning, foresight (the grid, the protocols) with the letting go and trust evident elsewhere – the phased lengths, the blank space for the person who didn’t turn up, the open performative structure – makes for something of great richness. http://dvblog.org/?p=9025 (english & français)

Mutant #2 on DVblog

“This piece is described as a video arising out of the second session of a “Telematic Performance / Experiment investigating communication and relational dynamics in a dispersed group.” and it’s bewitching.

The pages documenting it bear the motto “Communication is never clean, smooth and transparent” True – and to turn that truth into crystalline & affecting art is a little miracle.” Michael Szpakowski  http://dvblog.org/?p=7447

Interesting and affecting convergence of the performative work Curt Cloninger has been doing of late with the strange, wonderful & categorisation denying oeuvre of Annie Abrahams.

Squad performance video fragment

squad1l’escouade Je vous en prie, entrez“?

Utterly bonkers* & totally splendid video documentation of a performance
by Annie Abrahams, Colette Tron et Emmanuelle Delafraye.
Annie Abrahams performs the movements whilst the others
read texts on the subject of fear, garnered, I believe, from the internet.
