PERFORMANCE BY RICARDO CUEVAS

Le mercredi 21 mars 2012 at 8 p.m.

Fear no thunder, nor lightning

From a proposition by Christian Alandete


The work of the Mexican artist Ricardo Cuevas explores the modalities of transposition from a language to another, et more precisely the passing from a visual language (the one from the photographic image) to the text. His work often refers to books and how different languages coexist, get tangled, overlay, respond and sometimes contradict one another. What lecture can we do of an image without denaturing its specificity? What mental image produces a text? With Fear no thunder, nor lightning, Ricardo Cuevas overlays on the representation of landscapes an over-text in Braille, derived from the only accomplished novel by Edgar Allan Poe, functioning as the palimpsest of the image and its possible interpretation.

A lecture by a blind person will be held the night of the performance.
