Projection : « Ne cherchez plus mon cœur, les bêtes l’ont mangé »
Le Cercle (228 Rue Saint-Joseph Est)
Folie/Culture was pleased to present a video by RE:c collective: Ne cherchez plus mon cœur, les bêtes l’ont mangé (Stop looking for my heart, the animals ate it). The screening was part of the launch of long-time Folie/Culture collaborator Alain-Martin Richard’s monograph Performances, manœuvres et autres hypothèses de disparition (Performances, maneuvers and other hypotheses of disappearance), an account of his artistic career.
Continuing with its theme: Alienated people of the world, Unite!, Folie/Culture screened Ne cherchez plus mon cœur, les bêtes l’ont mangé, a film that explores the convergences and limitations of flesh and desire.
“On May 8, 2012, in the Polish city of Piotrkow Tribunalsky, RE:c members gathered around a table and began biting each other all over their bodies, releasing cries of mingled pain and pleasure. They then, one by one, left the gallery for an outdoor space where they proceeded to dig their own mass grave. They will end up buried by local residents drawn by their orgasmic screams.”
RE:c is a performing arts collective formed in 2010 at the École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Visuels de La Cambre (Brussels). The collective brings together artists from diverse backgrounds and fine art disciplines including designers Boris Dambly and Valentin Perilous (Belgium), performer Madely Schott (France), and painter Britta Vossmerbäumer (Germany).
