[ISEA2000] Artist Statement: Martine Tréguet & Olivier Engler – Virtual Poetry

Artist Statement

“Virtual Poetry is an obsolete diskette containing my collection of poems frozen in 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 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 opens on the world. The body of the scribe rose to join the travelling vision and write down in space the loops and limits of writing, prefigured in my videographics”.
