TV Report about Intruders at Festival Retour vers le Future 2017

Besides this little foretaste of spring in Châteauroux in the centre of France, we are happy to bring back to Berlin a little video report about INTRUDERS made by bipTV. Thanks to the team of “Le 9 club” and the festival “Retour vers le future“. In the video you can find also some impressions of a collaborative project called PYREXUS, which we did together with the French Band ORGANIC BANANAS – it was a pleasure to work with you. I hope we will have the chance to repeat this!

Report about Intruders

Thanks to Michael Wüst for this text about Intruders at the art space whiteBox in the frame of the exhibition “Everything is a remix”, curated by Benjamin Jantzen.

Am 13. und 14. Juli zeigten A-li-ce & Swub im Rahmen der Ausstellung „Everything is Remix“ die 35 Minuten dauernden Performance „Intruders“ [...] die sich zusammensetzt aus mehr als 2000 Samples. Grundlage sind 4000 Filme, die vom französischen Nationalarchiv Centre CICLIC zur Verfügung gestellt wurden.

Die Filme sind vorwiegend aus kleineren Städten in ländlichen Gebieten während der 20er Jahre in Frankreich, manche wohl auch später. Es beginnt in dem historischen Graben dieser Jahre zwischen den zwei Weltkriegen mit einer Tanztee-Szene. Ein geisterhafter Ballsaal, der erinnert an „Selected Memories From The Haunted Ballroom“ von James Leyland Kirby, der sich in seinen elektronischen Arbeiten „The Caretaker“ nannte. Wir empfinden die Bilder und Klänge dieser tanzenden Gesellschaft als so etwas wie die geisterhafte Dokumentation einer in diesem vergangenem Moment einsetzenden Verdrängung dessen, was damals Zukunft war.

Das Dokument ist aufgeladen mit der vorauseilenden Verdrängung der Zukunft. Das Video annonciert so ganz klar in dieser Exposition wo der Fluchtpunkt seiner Entwicklung liegen wird, den es allerdings nicht erreichen kann, weil er ja im dokumentarisch Unbewußten verborgen bleibt. Scheinbar freundlich detailverliebt streichen die privaten Kameras über Landschaft, Bäume, Schlick, Straße, versunkenen Alltag. Der Sound, ursprünglich orientiert am Knattern von Super 8-Projektoren, zieht Schlieren, verflüssigt sich, lässt sich hinunter gleiten. Geigenklänge werden zu ertrinkenden Sirenen. Der historische Graben füllt sich mit Wasser.

Menschen erledigen ihr Lebenszeug, Pfeife stopfen, rauchen, ein Pferd über die Straße führen, Obst essen, lachen. Ein alter Renault fährt durch eine Unterführung auf dem Weg zu Tarkowskis Solaris. Schneeballschlachten von Kindern führen zu Aufmärschen von Massen, erst Mädchen in roten Kostümen, dann Proteste, dann Militär.

Kinder, die Missbrauchten der Geschichte, kommen auf die Kamera zu, Intruders unseres kollektiven Gedächtnisses. Ein Mädchen in einem roten Dufflecoat auf einem Dreirad. In uns erklingt „Its All Forgotten Now“, die Ballroommelodie aus „Shining“ von Stanley Kubrick.

La création proposée par A-li-ce et Swub en clôture de nos rencontres a été menée en association avec Bandits-Mages (Bourges), structure unique qui a vu le jour en 1991. Bandits-Mages est une plateforme de résidence, de production, d’expérimentation, de recherche, de diffusion et de sensibilisation dans le domaine élargi des médias contemporains tels que la vidéo, le cinéma, le son, ou encore les objets électroniques et numériques. A-li-ce et Swub y ont été accueillis en résidence en mars dernier afin de créer la performance de cette dernière soirée.

Residency at L’hybride in Lille (France)

Together with A-li-ce I stayed now nearly one week in Lille to work on the sound details for the performance Parade. After a few night shifts, finally we are really happy with the results and looking forward to play it live. So if you are around, please join us! It will be even a crazy presentation: everybody will have headphones with a wireless lan signal. I always was wondering how a club sounds with dancing people and without sound ? Let’s find out this saturday!

7th December 2013 – 9:30pm at L’hybride, 18 rue Gosselet – Lille
Pour clôturer les VisualMix de l’année en beauté, L’hybride est fier de vous présenter un << work in progress >> de l’artiste A-li-ce qui a effectué une résidence dans nos murs. Ce projet, en collaboration avec l’artist sonore Swub, est une parade funèbre poétique, librement inspirée des écrits de l’écrivain américain J.G. Ballard (Crash et La Foire aux atrocités), à base d’écriture automatique, de messages spams, d’oiseaux et autres créatures imaginaires. Il entraîne le spectateur dans un voyage schizophrénique, òu seule l’ironie permet de tenir debout.
