Abstract

Mais um lançamento da Coleção Propg Digital, por meio do selo Cultura Acadêmica, Mulheres recipientes se configura como uma obra de grande sensibilidade ao realizar a interseção entre a arte e os sentimentos femininos.Resultado da dissertação de mestrado de Flavia Leme de Almeida, é necessário destacar que este livro não se restringe às generalidades de “estudos de gênero”. A proposta aqui extrapola este conceito. A autora faz uma análise múltipla: como a mulher enxerga a vida e como ela se expressa? Como o feminino aparece na arte? A partir destas questões fundamentais ela vai até os povos ancestrais, desvelar as primeiras esculturas votivas de evocação à fertilidade. Em seguida, faz um estudo de artistas mulheres contemporâneas, evidenciando como cada uma exprime suas angústias e experiências através de suas obras, destacando Frida Khalo, Louise Bourgeois, Celeida Tostes, entre outras. Por fim, Flavia Leme faz uma autoavaliação do próprio trabalho como artista, exprimindo seu processo de criação.Mulheres recipientes realiza um estudo corajoso, que não hesita em revelar para o leitor as aflições, pensamentos e projeções do feminino. Ao analisar a arte, este livro toca no íntimo de muitas mulheres e descobre experiências que não poderiam ser conhecidas de outra forma.

Abstract

O principal objetivo do presente trabalho é registrar e compreender a trajetória do Projeto Comédia Popular Brasileira (CPB) e, consequentemente, da Fraternal Companhia de Arte e Malas-Artes por meio das personagens criadas durante 15 anos de pesquisa estética (1993-2008). São objetos de análise os projetos específicos desenvolvidos a cada fase do Projeto CPB, suas respectivas peças e espetáculos, concepções de personagens, o trabalho e formação dos atores e a relação estabelecida com o alvo principal de sua vida teatral: o público. Em sua primeira fase (1993-1997) - VER, a Fraternal cria personagens-tipo brasileiras, influenciada pelos comediógrafos Martins Pena, Artur Azevedo e Ariano Suassuna, retomando o diálogo com os tipos fixos da commedia dell´arte. Na segunda fase (1998-2001) - OUVIR, as personagens-tipo cedem o protagonismo às personagens inspiradas nas festas populares medievais, pautadas no estudo teórico de Mikhail Bakhtin. E, na terceira fase (2002-2008) - IMAGINAR, atores saltimbancos apresentam as personagens por meio da narração e da representação. Neste período, a Cia. aprofunda sua prática no jogo cênico estabelecido entre personagens, atores e narradores para a construção dramatúrgica e interpretativa de seus espetáculos, inspirada em Bertolt Brecht e Luigi Pirandello. A escolha de personagens como interlocutoras dos anseios e da história do povo brasileiro refletiu, desde o início, a específica visão de mundo e de cultura popular adotada pela Fraternal, referendada no ponto de vista contrário ao da classe dominante, o da classe dominada. Dario Fo (1999), Mikhail Bakhtin (1987), Walter Benjamin (1994) e Bertolt Brecht, pautados tanto no que concerne a uma apreensão da encenação e da interpretação cômica, quanto a seus posicionamentos críticos perante a atividade artística, foram essenciais à compreensão da trajetória da Cia.

Abstract

Iteration:Again documents and reflects upon a series of thirteen temporary public art commissions by twenty-one Australian and international artists that took place across Tasmania from September 18 to October 15, 2011. Produced by Contemporary Art Spaces Tasmania and David Cross, in conjunction with seven partner curators, Iteration:Again presents a compelling array of temporary artworks in largely unexpected places throughout Tasmania. Working to transform our experience of place for a moment in time, each commission seeks to address how temporary interventions or responses by artists to public sites, environments and buildings can serve to open up new ways of understanding Tasmania as a place with very complex cultural, social and spatial resonances. How it might be possible to introduce transformative elements that challenge the notion of a fixed or definitive artwork grounded in one location? By asking the artists to make four different chapters or ‘iterations’ over the course of a four-week period, David Cross challenged each practitioner to think through how change or processes of transition may function to make the art experience an unstable and contingent one. This idea of incorporating change into the work highlights a growing interest by artists in emphasizing art as a potentially theatrical or even fictive medium with the audience experiencing different moments or stages of encounter over a number of weeks. The idea provided for the possibility of narrative sequences, formal investigations, or temporal shifts that saw key additions or subtractions over time. Each commission sought to recast our understanding of public artwork from a discrete event or viewing experience, to a suite of experiences.

Abstract

Christina McPhee’s ‘commonplace book’ draws from a palimpsest of handwritten notes, lists, quotations, bibliographic fragments, and sketches, from an artist whose voracious reading practice is a direct feed into her life and art — all set to a visual and textual design-as-score, as prominent writers on painting, media arts, performance, video installation and poetics engage with her ‘open-work’ practice. Christina McPhee’s images move from within a matrix of abstraction, shadowing figures and contingent effects. The tactics of living are in subterfuge, like the dazzle ships of camouflage in war. This ‘commonplace book’ develops a view of recent work in collaged paintings, drawings, photomontage and video installation, around themes of environmental transformation and ‘post-natural’ community.

Abstract

In a Trance is just the sort of genre-defying work we at Peanut and punctum and, as it happens, Jeffrey Skoblow, revel in. It is a book-length essay by a fiction writer. It is a fictional essay by a literary scholar. It is a gallant assay by a smart man who thinks while he walks, and he walks a lot. The book is a meta-meditation on Paleolithic cave drawings and the humans who ponder them. It is fact-based and entrancing just as the cave drawings are actual (existing in time — loosely — and space — more definitively) and mesmerizing. Skoblow is devising stories as “we” (humans) have always devised stories though in a less familiar mode, along a less travelled path. The essay draws on (!) the careful/thoughtful/whimsical notebooks kept by Skoblow over a dozen years. The notebooks record/illuminate/complicate his visits to twelve Paleolithic art sites as well as his deep, eccentric reading of texts concerned in some way with the subject of cave drawings by an array of scientists, anthropologists, archeologists, art historians, and other sundry enthusiasts and experts, so-called and otherwise.

Abstract

For too long, the Earth has been used to ground thought instead of bending it; such grounding leaves the planet as nothing but a stage for phenomenology, deconstruction, or other forms of anthropocentric philosophy. In far too much continental philosophy, the Earth is a cold, dead place enlivened only by human thought—either as a thing to be exploited, or as an object of nostalgia. Geophilosophy seeks instead to question the ground of thinking itself, the relation of the inorganic to the capacities and limits of thought. This book constructs an eclectic variant of geophilosophy through engagements with digging machines, nuclear waste, cyclones and volcanoes, giant worms, secret vessels, decay, subterranean cities, hell, demon souls, black suns, and xenoarcheaology, via continental theory (Nietzsche, Schelling, Deleuze, et alia) and various cultural objects such as horror films, videogames, and weird Lovecraftian fictions, with special attention to Speculative Realism and the work of Reza Negarestani. In a time where the earth as a whole is threatened by ecological collapse, On an Ungrounded Earth generates a perversely realist account of the earth as a dynamic engine materially invading and upsetting our attempts to reduce it to merely the ground beneath our feet.

Abstract

Nei ruggenti anni Cinquanta, in pieno miracolo economico, Alberto Martini, appena laureatosi a Firenze con Roberto Longhi, si avviava al mestiere di storico dell’arte. Una disciplina che di lì a pochi anni il giovane avrebbe rivoluzionato, entrando nelle case degli italiani grazie ai mitici «Maestri del Colore» Fabbri Editori. Progetto che gli aveva permesso di girare il mondo e di accumulare una serie di contatti con direttori e funzionari di musei, in un raggio d’azione internazionale: strabilianti viaggi per dirigere le campagne fotografiche, finalmente a colori, delle opere da riprodurre nella fortunata collana. Al grande cantiere divulgativo aveva affiancato rilevanti studi scientifici, dalle indagini sul Trecento riminese alla chiarificazione delle tappe nella carriera giovanile di Bartolomeo della Gatta. Dal 1962 Martini avrebbe instaurato un legame profondo con Alberto Giacometti, sul quale avrebbe messo a fuoco, di lì a poco, l’analisi più acuta e lucida espressa fino a quel momento dalla critica italiana.Il volume offre una biografia intellettuale del personaggio, con documenti e carteggi inediti, ripercorrendo le tappe della sua carriera, scandita dalle poliedriche esperienze che un giovane storico dell’arte intraprendente poteva accumulare nell’Italia prolifica degli anni del boom economico, radio e televisione comprese.

Abstract

This volume brings together writing and imagery from the experimental “beachwalk” session(s) at the Third Biennial Meeting of the BABEL Working Group, On the Beach: Precariousness, Risk, Forms of Life, Affinity, and Play at the Edge of the World. We began with conversations about the sea. We meditated together on chance, discovery, agency, beauty, and material ecology. We talked about the delicate care of treading the world, the confluence of the personal and the professional, and the possibilities of storytelling. We thought about what happens when we encounter stuff, when we take it, change it, do something with it. When we display it, or sculpt it, or collect it. When we make something an object, and an object of looking. Then we met on the beach. We walked and talked about loss, home, agency, and liminality. We collected things: We picked up stones, feathers, seaweed. We pointed to stuff, gathered it, let it strike our fancy. Every shell nurtured a conversation among the artists, scientists, historians, poets, archivists, surfers, philosophers, and pirates who had joined the walk. We brought the sea-things back, manipulated them, and displayed them as works of art. Walk on the Beach is a souvenir of that project, a record of our bounty. It emerges from the process at the heart of art historical work: close looking. Thinking through objects, thinking with objects. Letting the things help us tell their stories. This is a tiny collection of looking, together

[Given, If, Then]: A Reading in Three Parts

Abstract

[Given, If, Then] attempts to conceive a possibility of reading, through a set of readings: reading being understood as the relation to an Other that occurs prior to any semantic or formal identification, and, therefore, prior to any attempt at assimilating, or appropriating, what is being read to the one who reads. As such, it is an encounter with an indeterminable Other, an Other who is other than other — an unconditional relation, and thus a relation to no fixed object of relation. The first reading by Jeremy Fernando, “Blind Reading,” unfolds through an attempt to speak of reading as an event. Untheorisable in itself, it is a positing of reading as reading, through reading, where texts are read as a test site for reading itself. As such, it is a meditation on the finitude and exteriority in literature, philosophy, and knowledge; where blindness is both the condition and limit of reading itself. Folded into, or in between, this (re)reading are a selection of photographs from Jennifer Hope Davy’s image archive. They are on the one hand simply a selection of ‘impartial pictures’ taken, and on the other hand that which allow for something singular and, therefore, always other to dis/appear — crossing that borderless realm between ‘some’ and ‘some-thing.’ Eventually, there is a writing on images on writings by Julia Hölzl. A responding to the impossible response, a re-iteration, a re-reading of what could not have been written, a re-writing of what could not have been read; these poems, if one were to name them such, name them as such, answer (to) the impossibility of answering: answer to no call.
