Performing AW#…

As I want to keep on writing the exact same sentence on and on, progressively both a visual and mental landscape emerge in front of the audience, in which they can dive, dream or escape.

For the many years I have been performing AW#, I am still amazed with the depth and diversity of this project. Even though my protocol stays equal, the visual result of each performance is unique and different.

I am grateful for your interest in my ACTIONWRITING# project and wish you a pleasant journey on my website.

May you have any question, do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you,

Marie Gossart.

About ACTIONWRITING#


ACTIONWRITING# is a weak signal, a fragile yet consistent and continuous attempt to give exposure to what is at play in the creative act.

In that respect, the act of writing is exemplary as only human beings have this gift.

About ACTIONWRITING#


As the body is transfigured by the mind and vice versa, here appears what could be an attempt to grasp a sense of what being human is.

About ACTIONWRITING#


ACTIONWRITING# reflects the will ( « I want to keep on writing ») to figure out (figurare) the fundamental grounds of a continent which seems to be questioned by some foolish dreams of immortality and supra intelligence, very distant from our immemorial and constitutive truth.

AW# genesis

In 2008, I was living in Tokyo.

This is when I re-opened myself to writing and this is the year when the Chanel Mobile Art landed in Tokyo for a few weeks. The last piece of art presented in Zaha Hadid's ship was signed by Yoko Ono.

It was a Wish Tree, relating to the Japanese and Buddhist tradition.

On one branch, I entangled my little piece of paper on which I had written my most precious, dearest wish:

«I want to keep on writing»

These words were not a mere wish. They were a prayer, like a mantra you keep on repeating in order to stay alive. They carried a lot of meaning/sense.

The weight of these words was in total opposition with the fragility of the installation, this tiny tree which was holding the wishing papers of each of us.

It was also an absolute form of anachronism, this Wish Tree standing there surrounded by digital pieces of art.

These tiny pieces of paper, condemned to short-term destruction, whilst internet conversations would continue their endless flow, apparently eternal.

The power of thinking. Of the mind. The act of creating, in order to mark, tattoo the present.

 

 
   The Wish Tree has been a part of many exhibitions by Yoko Ono since the 1990s. People are invited to write their wish on a piece of paper and hang it to a tree branch
