[ISEA2000] Artists Talk: MARTINE TREGUET & OLIVIER ENGLER – Virtual Poetry / Rendre contre

Artists Statement

Poesie virtuelle (Virtual Poetry) is an obsolete diskette containing my collection of poems frozen in an irreversible state. My videographies contribute to the research of sounds and images, figures of the voice of an oratory Art, of my previous manuscript. For me, the hand that starts the action is the same hand that would write on the pages. The hand, so close to the eye, so close to the idea, in line with the elaboration of thought, seizes the camera lens just like a stiletto open on the world. The body of a scribe rose to join the travelling vision and write down in space the loops and limits of writing, prefigured in my videoglyphics.
