Annie Abrahams featured artist

alienated

Ours Lingages. The internet is my language mother. I speak with a voice that’s not my own, I speak in other voices, not my voice. We are all e-strangers, all nomads that use globish bastard languages. We are the alienated translated (wo)men in-between code and emotion, in-between our wish to be visible and our longing for intimacy. L’entre-deux = void. Can’t we be “with” instead?
Translation is a joy as long as you can accept the imperfections of the result, are willing to learn, to spend time, to pay attention, to take risks and to accept your own incompleteness and glitches. Translation is always failing, faulty, it’s a source for confusion … and discovery. It opens a third language; another in-between, and then a fourth and … Better take nothing for granted and play with it. Be the one not looking at what something is, but at what something can do.
You have to accept (a FEW times). A few times. New language. Let’s try to be “with”.

A three-way conversation about performance art online

Igor Štromajer & Annie Abrahams by Gretta Louw in BOMB Magazine April 21st 2014.

BOMB Magazine has been publishing conversations between artists of all disciplines since 1981. BOMB’s founders—New York City based artists and writers—created BOMB because they saw a disparity between the way artists talked about their work among themselves and the way critics described it.

I first met Igor Štromajer online—we are net-based artists, after all. That was back in 2011 when I spent 10 days locked in a Berlin gallery, available 24 hours a day for contact via the Internet to test the effects of extreme online connectedness as part of a performance called Controlling_Connectivity. Igor became very involved in the performance, posing some of the most insightful questions from participants in the piece, and eventually dubbing me the “Joan of Arc of the Internet.” Through Igor, I discovered Annie Abrahams’s wonderful, groundbreaking networked performances such as The Big Kiss, where she spent several hours “kissing” a collaborator via the web using a split-screen and close-up webcam streams of each of the performers’ mouths. Though very different in style, these two artists share a gift for showing us the messy, human side of the Internet and technology; their work is authentic, intimate, exploratory, and inspiring.” Introduction by Gretta.

Igor in Frankfurt and Annie in Montpellier will be united in a webcam performance interface. Igor and Annie will be the marionettes to be put into (e)motion via a text written by the public on their smartphones and computers.
A speaker will read this text aloud in front of the public while Annie and Igor will execute as good as they can the protocol and commands proposed to them, they won’t kiss.

No content determined. The performers are as instruments. Nothing will happen without commands. The public is the master of the game. The project tends a mirror – a mirror for the capacity to co-write the event, to guide this intimate meeting of two internet puppets.

As much an exercice in collectif writing as a performance.

Mission FCTA – Trust in the Technics of Others

FCTA4webbisAs astronauts, while they guide the space station which carries them, must trust this station a 100%, Annie Abrahams will have to trust her vessel of flesh and blood, will have to trust the bodies on which she lies and to which she must surrender.

Mission FCTA
Faire Confiance à la Technique des Autres
(Trust in the Technics of Others)
March 23, 4.30 pm, CNES, Paris during the festival Sidération

Annie Abrahams will be carried by Jean-Luc Soret, Urte Amélie Fink, Emilie Schalck, Karen Guillorel, Vanessa Vallée, Lili Mamath, Aniara Rodado, David Guasgua, Séverine Delbosque, Romaric Tisserand and David Ferrag. They will try to make her journey comfortable, they will help her to sustain streaming contact and to cope with casualities. They will together manage a body in suspension. The carriers (professional dancers, a curator, an author, an artist) are all volunteering for this task. They don’t know each other and had only two hours of preparation. So the event will be as much a performance as an exercise in auto-organisation. Trust will be crucial.

Mission FCTA – Faire Confiance à la Technique des Autres

Mission FCTAComme les spationautes sont portés par leur station, doivent “lui” faire confiance à 100 % pendant qu’ils le guident par ses instruments de bord, Annie Abrahams va devoir faire confiance à son vaisseau de chair, aux corps sur lesquelles elle repose et à qui elle va devoir se rendre.

Pour sa Mission FCTA
Faire Confiance à la Technique des Autres
le 23 mars 16h30 au CNES à Paris pendant le festival Sidération

complet Annie Abrahams aura besoin d’une dizaine de volontaires : des personnes amateurs ou professionnels de performance, de théâtre, de danse ou de cinéma. Toute personne ayant envie de relever un défi sera la bienvenue. Une rencontre de préparation est prévue le 19 mars 18h au CNES complet

Jean-Luc Soret, Urte Amélie Fink, Emilie Schalck, Karen Guillorel, Vanessa Vallée, Lili Mamath, Aniara Rodado, David Guasgua, Séverine Delbosque, Romaric Tisserand et David Ferrag ont envie de participer à ce projet, d’aider à me porter, de m’aider a garder le contact du streaming, à faire face aux éventualités du parcours, à gérer un corps en suspension. Les porteurs ( danseureuses pro, un curateur, curatrice, auteur, artiste plasticienne) sont tous volontaires. Ils ne se connaissent pas et n’ont eu que deux heures de préparation. Cet évènement sera donc autant une exercise en auto-organisation qu’une performance.
