A conversation between Gorge Bataille and Cy Lecerf Maulpoix

Interweaving readings of excerpts from their texts with their own voices, the two authors Gorge Bataille and Cy Lecerf Maulpoix dissect the experience of a shared crisis: the crumbling of a political and sexual language in revolt. As companions aware of the contemporary forms of creative dispossession, of the dissonance and violence produced by dominant cultural spaces, they question and respond to each other, in search of a word, a writing that is troubled, fierce and mutant.

Both authors will be featured in the next issue of P L S, Palais de Tokyo’s magazine, available in bookstores from October 15th. Cy Lecerf Maulpoix’s poems blossom around drawings from Lazare Lazarus and Tom de Pekin, while Gorge Bataille shares her climate-skeptic love stories in the company of Wittig and River.

This event takes place in the context of the Friche, a time-space set aside at the heart of the exhibition spaces, which reconnects with the multiple functions of art and goes beyond the traditional uses and missions of an institution.
