Eve K. Tremblay - EKTBF451/EKTFF451: Notes & Confessions

Eve K. Tremblay’s multimedia project Becoming Fahrenheit 451 started in 2007. Similar to many of her other works, it was triggered by an accidental event from the artist’s former nomadic life and sharp observations of her close surroundings; in this particular case, the encounter with a video-rental store in Berlin, in the neighborhood Tremblay was living at the time. The store’s name, Filmgalerie 451, was indeed symbolic; it referred to the name of a famous Sci-Fi novel by Ray Bradbury (in the 1960s loosely adapted into film by François Truffaut) that describes not that distant future in which books and reading are treated as a threat to society’s peacefulness; as a disturbance that supposedly leads to uneasiness, doubt, criticality and consequently misfortune. Therefore, the books needed to be destroyed by specialized squads of firemen; only small groups of dissidents, the so- called “Book People,” had the mission to preserve the books from obsolescence in immaterial form- in their minds, through the specially developed photographic memorization method- in spite of being prosecuted. For MK Gallery, Tremblay envisioned an all-encompassing presentation of her Becoming Fahrenheit 451, titled EKTBF451/EKTFF45 : Notes and Confessions.  Exhibition will open on 5th of December 2014 at 8 pm.

Workshop U know what I mean, or do u

A workshop exploring identity and understanding as phenomena that are rooted in language, performance and percpetion. During this workshop we will examine how understanding in language is based on agreement. As common language users we agree on meaning, making understanding not exactly verifibale, but rather sensibile, or something that we think we feel. Meaning becomes shared and common, no longer based on truth or propriety.

REMOVED FROM THE CROWD: Unexpected Encounters I_ READER

Bringing together newly commissioned essays predominantly from an emerging generation of researchers and writers, this reader focuses on conceptual and experimental artistic, curatorial and institutional practices that have rarely or never been brought into relation with parallels outside their respective context, in this case Latvia, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary, Chile, Peru, Poland and Romania. It does not strive for the formulation of a structured narrative of theses and conclusions, nor is it imagined as a review of practices determined by their ‘peripheral geographies’. Rather, while seeking to avoid already established analogies and references it becomes a call for close reading. The result is an experiment in which comparative readings can be formed through potentially unexpected and revealing ‘encounters’.
