the spectrum of my voice
Introduction

  • archive document

  • archive document

Is life a vision ? My voice is the sound spectrum

of my vision, the life that spreads. Are women verbal ? They are "trance-mission". Is sound granular ? Sound disarticulates language,

the voice is mixed and remixed until it is no more to identify, until I am no more to be identified;

it is at the brim of the audible. Bone, air, violence.

It is only in the stability of life that I can renew.

For example when life is confusing I can become just a voice.

The impossible ratings
The impossible ratings

  • Vision WO500, Planète embryonnaire, Galaxie de la Vierge, Ventre en écoute, Exil

Where transformations take place, where bodies quiver, where stars follow their path.

Where Dominique Vermeesch's components and impossible classifications circulate: files, biographical excerpts, sharp stethoscopes, performances, readings and icons give form to this consciences and questioning jumble shaping her whole creation.

Because orders and disorders of a glimpsed universe imply random or instinctive classification by opening and closing drawers filled with streams and doubts while spreading invisible sounds.

Because the build-up of History leading figures make light of lies and truths ramifying inside our genetic heritage.

Because the magical load of scientific discoveries and turmoils appear a bit more every day at the end of telescopes and nail fetishes.

Because the words, sounds, invisible electricities binding our underestimated or misunderstood atoms together, from ears to toes, pertain to the same galaxy as our heroes, chromosomes, precepts and relics.

Because black holes and constellations comply with our ignorance, and knowledge is just another mute God.

Because Bosch's, Rubens', St Sebastian's arrows, colours and cries covet the ones of those lying on hospital beds and because the convolutions blessed with this peculiar energy of operating tables also build their fair share of infinite clouds, of the hundred and one planets awaiting us all.

And because centuries did not allow them to broadcast yet.

Because a consultation applies to records and aching bodies alike.

Because it really is a thread of marrow that transforms our bones into a spine and because this thread spins out of a global spindle twisting before us.

Because it is not too late to think about tomorrow's archeology.

Because our outward coverings talk to our skeletons in mysterious ways.

Because wardrobes will eventually be filled up and because their metal gets them to vibrate.

For all that and much more.

It is not just about giving birth, going somewhere, but passing through. 

And reconciling curiosity about the world with our humble pile of cells.

 

François Delvoye

My body, sensor
Introduction

  • archive document

  • archive document

  • archive document

Any contact and perception between me and life must be tried and invented.

While creating, my body becomes a sensor. With my body, I can perceive in a " transorganic " way what surrounds me.

 

I also use any other object that allows me - beyond the traditional networks - to capture life. For example, I can drag a micro-sensor on

my skin and listen to an event of the world that spreads through my cells.

 

Perceptions are pushed to the extreme of

the human perception senses. My eyes can touch

a stranger's hand tattooed with blood; my cheek can experience political violence in Libya.

When perceptions appear, I record them by camera shooting, audio recording, graphic notes.

nomadic thoughts
Introduction

  • archive document

When I’m designing, I incorporate personal documents, newspaper articles, books and technology into my working files. I associate them, mixing and glueing them. The broadcast can be an audio or visual one. The whole thing forms a timeless, never fixed and multi-versions installation. The elements contained in the arrangement move from one research to another. It is an eternal beginning, transformation, death, and rebirth. It is part of a nomadic thinking, of a concept of language that sticks to my own life. Only the document memorises with or without sound.

1995 — Transmit socio-artistic-post-human survivals. Change my name into (d£.space).

My body, sensor
Document 1

  • archive document

Eyes shut, I penetrate my own being. I open and enter myself.

 

The sensations I am feeling are instantly captured on a sound tapping device and sent to the loudspeakers.

 

The voice comes out of the body and the speakers and overwhelms me. The universe, as well as some documents relating to the experience, is installed on a table, they are used to disseminate any mnesic occurrence.

Verbal work accompanies my research on the plastical transformation of the being, of it is mutation and fiction. The sound environment

(or : acoustic panorama) is activated by a voice derivation that destabilises and sends the mnesic sound perception back to an extratemporaneous dimension.

The sound contains questionings, sensations / perceptions of the act of conception. The texts come from experiences of contact with the depth of my being.

Study on HW0S
Some vibrations emitted by the universe are captured by my body. Attracted by this magical, mystical, cosmic side, I spatialize their emissions by introducing them in a language made of thunders of fear. In me, all is obscurity and silence. When I perceive the universe, each of my gestures makes fly myriads of ashes of this world: virus, smell of the flesh, mud, death, explosion, elevation.
Texts, photographic documents and drawings of this work will be exposed later in those pages

I have found these hearts from the Boyadjian collection in the reserve of the Museum of Louvain-la-Neuve. I have included them in various experiments : Photos, videos, performance…. When I touched these hearts, I was touching rebirths, beats, loves. My body has retained the vision of this picture, and ever since a kind of excrescence has grown in myself. I have many hearts, many lives.

Document 4

Influenced by Merleau-Ponty’s work, I have applied a few personal experiences from his phenomenology of perception. Through the applications, I have realised that my being was a sensitive plate. I was bio-seismic. I am the material of my art, a place of gestation and hence of action. Here, like in other works, I’m pursuing performative actions specific to female artists and writers before me, for example Carolee Schneemann in the seventies.

Hannah Arendt’s writings have been particularly interesting to me from the point of view of human thought, they helped me follow a thought of life that clung closely to my art. Almost everyday, her works are present in what I’m experiencing and what I’m living. "Concept of Love", as this experience might be titled is focused on her thesis on the "Concept of love in Augustine." This approach is "one" of the vision of her thought: I’m enclosing in it mutation, transmission, and renewed beginnings. A sound design.

Art + prostitution

  • archive document

Cd, pictures , texte. Voice, (d£.space), Dorothée Richet,
noise, Daniel Duchamp.
Two women with plural identity record the depth
of their bodies. Their intimate interiorities are being
explored with a camera, writings and sound recordings.
The body and its ultra-sensory perceptions are
simultaneously tools and receptacles-laboratories.
The world of these two women is voice-recorded and
then mixed. Their identities are like communicating
vessels, it is the birth of a network with meeting points
and divergences. The recordings are performed in real
or virtual places that are carriers of meditative
experiences, such as the philosophical garden
of the Museum of Erasmus House (Curator Alexandre
Vanautgaerden, Brussels), a painting of the Italian 17th Century, a text of Marguerite Duras ...
The granular sounds extracted from a conversation are close to a proto-language. Their acousmatic broadcasts form an "extra-ordinary" biotope and the ether which is dispersing in it becomes art.

In this experiment, I put myself in my own unconscious. This is the place the brunt of my being. I was soaked in blood. I felt as close to birth than to death. I was giving birth to myself and at the same time, I was forcing myself.
