Web performance : Postcards from my desktop.


Please join us on Monday December 15th, 20h30 Paris time, for a web performance by Renee Turner in the "Double Bind" series of panoplie.org.

Postcards from my desktop

"I would like to write you so simply, so simply, so simply."
Jacques Derrida, The Postcard: From Socrates to Freud and Beyond

Postcards from my desktop is a performance mixing RSS news feeds and simultaneous transcription. Sending snippets of communiqués across the ether, the work plays with interpretation, point of view and the imperfections of streaming technology.
Seeing the desktop as an exotic place where the world converges through RSS, the performance explores the limits of translation, immediacy and communication.

Renee Turner writes digital narratives and has been a member of De Geuzen: a foundation for multi-visual research since 1996. Her work can be viewed at: http://www.geuzen.org/ and http://www.fudgethefacts.com/

Access to the performances is open to all. You only have to connect to http://2008.panoplie.org/DoubleBind on Monday the 15th at 8.30 pm GMT+1 (Paris local time). Please follow this URL http://www.worldtimeserver.com/convert_time_in_FR.aspx?y=2008&mo=12&d=15&h=20&mn=30 to find your local hour.
However, you will have to subscribe to panoplie to obtain a password in order to participate in the chat. (Top left of the screen)

Hope to meet you there.

performance Pascal Lièvre in Double Bind series


Please join us on Monday October 20, 20h30 Paris time for a web performance by Pascal Lièvre in the Double Bind series.

Pascal Lièvre and Matthieu Delahausse, at two different places in Paris, will read the same extract of " Discipline and Punish " by Michel Foucault, each of them being equipped with an SM accessory which will make the exercise of the reading difficult.

Pascal Lièvre is a French artist born 1963 in Lisieux. He started his career as a painter, but from 2001 uses all kind of media in order to "mediumise the world around us in all its diversity". He uses indeed all kind off sources from philosophy, painting to popular music, cinema and politics, from Lacan to Britney Speers, Mao, aerobics and Munch. He mixes, remakes and transforms. His works are hybridisations of erudite and popular culture that transpire the desire to infect the one with the other.
