Art Amour Fou - postponed, extended, modified...

 

At this point:

Rather than beginning with performances, these are postponed towards the end of a possible 'work in progress' in which the spaces in the Maison Pelgrims will serve as office & laboratory of investigate and compile the archives and the collection Laetita left behind – with view to an exhibition to follow. By using the restrictions of public access in a practical and creative way, the slot provided will not be lost but well used for essential research that is surely needed, seen as to how much unknown material there still neesd to be investigated – towards an possible overview and at some point perhaps a 'catalogue raisonné'

Once Covid-restriction have been eased we can consider relaunching the original series of public presentations.

more/updates on this blog... as well as a dedicated site (soon)


Pour le moment...

Prévue est une occupation temporaire et créative de l'espace, afin de commencer à archiver, recenser les oeuvres, dessiner les contours du catalogue raisonné autour de Laetitia, et retracer le fil de l'histoire déjà lointaine contenue dans cette matière... une chantier artistique et archéologique de ce qui a fait lien, dans le monde d'avant, quand les gens pouvaient échanger en présence, rêver, circuler librement....en guise de work in progress vers l'exposition- à venir.

 

Voor nu even...

de performances uitstellen en de tijd en de plaats gebruiken voor een archiefonderzoek, ordening van de collectie etc... zo is deze semi-lockdown periode nuttig gebruikt en kunnen wij de tentoonstelling degelijk voorbereiden – zelfs met oog op een samenvatting voor een toekomstig overzichts-catalogus... Wij hopen de publieke presentaties dan in de eerste maanden van volgend jaar te kunnen laten doorgaan...

Laetitia Yalon ou lart-amour fou :
 exposition-hommage à l’artiste protéiforme, personnage culte de la scène culturelle bruxelloise. 
 
Peintre, performeuse, activiste, comédienne, éveilleuse, Laetitia marque des générations de jeunes créateurs par son esprit libre et rebelle. Fille de Gabrielle Bertrand-grande exploratrice, journaliste et écrivaine française, elle naît à Ibiza en 1934, et développe très tôt le goût de la vie hors norme. Après avoir grandi dans divers pays, elle gagne Israël et y devient batikeuse. En 1974, elle émigre en Belgique et intègre différents collectifs d’artistes, avant d'entamer une carrière de comédienne.
 
POSTPONED EXTENDED MODIFIED

 
Derrière sa vie faite d’art et d’amitié, de rencontres passionnées, se lit en filigrane une célébration perpétuelle du lien, de l’être-et du faire-ensemble, ici-et-maintenant. 
 
La rétrospective réunit oeuvres personnelles, oeuvres d’amis, photos, extraits de films et documents d’ archives. Elle sera ponctuée de performances à la mémoire de Laetitia. 
 
 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Laetitia Yalon or crazy art-love: 

exhibition-tribute to the protean artist, cult figure of the Brussels cultural scene. Painter, performer, activist, actress, awakening, Laetitia marks generations of young creators with her free and rebellious spirit. Daughter of Gabrielle Bertrand-great explorer, journalist and French writer, she was born in Ibiza in 1934, and very early on developed a taste for a life out of the ordinary. After growing up in various countries, she moved to Israel and became a batikeuse there. In 1974, she emigrated to Belgium and joined various artist collectives, before embarking on a career as an actress. Behind this (her) life made up of art and friendship, of passionate encounters, there is a perpetual celebration of the bond, of being-and of doing-together, here-and-now. The retrospective brings together personal works, works of friends, photos, film extracts and archival documents. It will be punctuated by performances in memory of Laetitia.

Laetitia Yalon of verzotte kunstliefde: een tentoonstelling/eerbetoon aan deze proteaans kunstenaar, cultfiguur van de Brusselse kunstscene. Schilder, performer, activist, actrice, ontwaker, Laetitia tekende generaties jonge makers met haar vrije en rebelse geest. Dochter van de Franse Gabrielle Bertrand, een geprezen ontdekkingsreiziger, journalist & schrijver. Ze werd in 1934 op Ibiza geboren en ontwikkelde al heel vroeg een hang naar een ongewoon leven. Nadat ze in verschillende landen was opgegroeid, verhuisde ze naar Israël en werd daar batik-kunstenaar. In 1974 emigreerde ze naar België en sloot zich aan bij verschillende groepen en creative werkplaatsen, voordat ze een carrière als actrice begon. Postuum blijven de vriendschap, de gepassioneerde ontmoetingen, blijft een eeuwigdurende viering van de band, van het samen zijn en het samen doen, hier en nu. Deze retrospectieve brengt persoonlijk werk, werken van vrienden, foto's, filmfragmenten en archiefstukken samen. Het zal worden doorspekt met optredens en presentaties ter nagedachtenis aan Laetitia.

Phantôme Buk
 










 
 L'artiste anonyme et absente avait continué le peinture rituelle de gesso 
sur le toile avec portrait ajouté en cookie et menthe... 
Il avait apurement utilisé le même pinceau que était objet de curiosité d’autrefois,
 en supposant que c'était oublié par Alexander De Quaste, mais cette fois je ne peux pas être sure si c'est le même... 
 Les pierres de Titania Altezze était sorti et mise sur de bouteilles, ou mieux dit flacons trop petits dans le paysage de Deuxelles,
 seul les pierres qui était avec dans le voyage au pays bavarois...
 Les autres reste dans leur Tupperware dans le magasin, pas touché....
Les feuilles morts du boit a coté du feu était distribué légèrement sur scène, 
table et papiers mise au terre pour let travaille du programme de Carlos, avec une légère nuance de 'fanto mi' sur la planche 
en vert tableau noir... Pas de vert grenouille, ni, Forest, ni Paddington ou Wimbledon... Non, vert grise comme avant... 
 
 

 
 Il avait aussi une masque abandonné et une autoportrait polaroid du fantôme -
 mais c'est qui? personne? Absence?
 Figure de imagination ou de Absinthe?
Who nose?

Next week....
Continuation of the Aby treesaga, the fantom of the gallery,

BuktaReprise (Opean8+2)

Bukta Paktop Reprise illuminé
le 19 octobere 2019 a 20:00 (portes 19:00)
avec soupe te chaleur...













































The complete crew of the Buktapaktop will be performing a piect that was presented by a delegation (two members missing) at the OPEAN # 8 performance series at Eintstien Kultur in Munich during a multi-perf tour of said city. This version will be an augmented and well-lit version, with enough variation and improvisation as to make it a new production perhaps… one of the possible discussions based on the underlying actor-netwokt-theory which was the point of departure for the project in Munich… consider it a hands-on investigation…

 (prepping the ritual)

Well Lit/version

It was meant to be an illuminating experience, what with the last version being obscurantist, rather doldrum like... With a reason, to wit, but not entirely to the liking of all those involved, which was also but a delegation and not the entire crew of Bukta Paktop... This time all were present and perhaps it is because of that fact there were minimal interventions and exchanges... The full light version too, may have contributed to the more detailed but less dramatic offerings... Leaving more space to ponder the significance?
Rather than improving upon a rather simple exchange, this illuminated version spread the conversation so broadly as to lose to a certain degree, the plot as it were ( compote vs complot ) and it all became very quiet... 








One has to imagine a secret society gathering in which everyone suspects a subversive element... And therefore makes no comment or move that can be construed to be anything or adhere to any attitude or position, practicing imponderabilia - if this is enough to warrant the kind of persecution the Bavarian Illuminati experiences in the early days remains a mute point... Here it seemed barely enough to retain momentum for the exchane needed to keep the ANT basis for the operation afloat... The performance needs to go on, so to speak... In this case the point of stalling came very close...














It has to be admitted this was but one of the multi-facetted project done in Munich, and there was no reference whatsoever to the crux of the biscuit, being the soul bread man that lives in all of us since the partaking in that memorable finno-belgian ritual at the Färberei... Documentation of which has not even yet been collated, analysis of which still has to be undertaken and to which the stone stories ( and Laetitia stone archive ) still have to be addressed...
So, hopfully there will be more posted soon....

the soul

Saturday saw the culmination of our combined efforts in our main base of operations,
Die Färberei, where we could practically do whatever we wanted; subdividing into gallery downstaris with projection...

there was a proposal by IPUT direct St. Turbo
to play Brecht's 'EXIT' at the beginning...
which in the end did not happen (due to the hole I think) 
but here it is if you like 















 and the nervecenter in the former archive space on the first floor, a sort of playroom of ideas and contributions, documentation and such, and then the main office/bakery on the top floor, where brains would steam and sweat would rund from Finish and Belgian brows...



But the main event was the combination of the two strains between Bukta Paktop and the MRCVE,
the so-called 'colloquia' in which the exchange of interpretations would occur and the differences and/or similarities become apparent:


the construction of a non-human humanoid, using 11 sorts of baking recopies, of which most very traditional and part of our human heritage, with, to top it off:  the soul - made from living dough some three hundred years old...
MRCVE spent three days baking the man, and it was up to BUKTA PAKTOP to imbue it with life!

here Bukta-members consider their options...


rituals with stones were of no avail, and even after injections with extra strong caffein solution, mo sign of life was to be registered, at which pint we mound forces (both the two groups as well as the public) to commence an autopsie....
