In this lecture-performance conceived with the musician Nicolas Murer (Macon), Lili Reynaud-Dewar will discuss aspects of her sculpture and film practice, including its use of literature, quotation, fragment and repetition, as well as her search for a form of balance resulting from constant oscillations between affinity-based collective work (anchored in family bonds or friendships) and the most complete solitude. Lili Reynaud-Dewar will also address her use of artistic strategies of embodiment, interpretation and parodying of leading male figures of the 20th and 21st centuries (writers Pier Paolo Pasolini, Guillaume Dustan and Jean Genet, painter Bjarne Melgaard, musician Sun Ra, architect Frederick Kiesler), as well as her in-depth study of the works, attitudes and methodologies of women writers and artists such as Cosey Fanni Tutti, Joséphine Baker, Marguerite Duras, Maïa Izzo-Foulquier and Kathy Acker. The lecture will also explore the ways in which the voice may be thought to proliferate to the point of total silence, as well as the state of never being alone.
Tickets for this event will give access to all the exhibitions of the Palais. This lecture/performance will take place at Salle 37.
