Sunday Morning With The Entangled Readers
The Cannibalist Manifesto - Part 3
Sunday 2 December 2018, 11:00-14:00.

The event open to 20 bodies, so kindly RSVP to shimmerrotterdam@gmail.com 

Shimmer, Lucie Draai, and Zoe Scoglio invite you to collectively read, sense and discuss The Manifesto Antropofago (The Cannibalist Manifesto) by Brazilian modernist poet Oswald de Andrade (São Paulo, May 1928). As Entangled Readers, the manifesto is engaged by sensorial modes of attention and read through the phenomena of Nonlocality, a concept derived from particle physics. Denise Ferreira Da Silva draws upon the phenomena in her text ‘Difference without Separability’ as a way of re-thinking sociality away from the grip of certainty to embrace the imaginations’ power to create, with unclear, confused or uncertain impressions. In Sunday Morning With The Entangled Readers, we will explore ways the text might resonate with, and be digested by, the bodies present in the room providing us tools for thinking through current political climates.

The Entangled Reader has been Initiated by Lucie Draai and Zoe Scoglio, acting as a point of connection and opening up of their practices and research. Sunday Morning With The Entangled Readers at Shimmer is the third iteration of their collective work, with previous editions at Hotwheels Projects, Athens as part of the Dutch Art Institute and Van Abbemuseum COOP Academy, 2018.

The Entangled Readers Part 2
Sunday 3 June 2018, 10:00am - 12:30pm.

We invite you for the second Entangled Readers. We'll continue where we left off in our last morning session and reintroduce the text for those joining us for the first time.

A collective reading, sensing and discussion around The Manifesto Antropofago (The Cannibalist Manifesto) written by Brazilian modernist poet Oswald de Andrade (São Paulo, May 1928). Read in relation to the phenomena of Nonlocality and drawing upon sensorial practices for becoming present, we will explore ways this text might resonate with (and be digested by) the bodies present in the room.

Nonlocality (or entanglement beyond space and time) is a concept derived from particle physics. Denise Ferreira De Silva draws upon this phenomena in her text ‘Difference without Separability’ as a way of re-thinking sociality away from the grip of certainty to embrace the imaginations’ power to create, with unclear, confused or uncertain impressions.

The Entangled Readers is initiated by Lucie Draai and Zoe Scoglio, acting as a point of connection and opening up of their individual practices and research. Presented as part of the group exhibition HOW IT COMES TO MATTER, by the Van Abbemuseum Coop Research group ‘Practicing Articulation, Articulation Practice’ at Hot Wheels Projects from June 1st-3rd. This event is framed as part of the Dutch Art Institute (DAI) COOP Summit in Athens 2018.

Limited space available so please RSVP at lucie@luciedraai.nl so we can save you a seat and send you The Cannibalist Manifesto to read in the lead up.

Hope to see you soon!

LUCIE DRAAI (b.1979 Bogota, Colombia)
BUT WE NEVER PERMITTED THE BIRTH OF LOGIC AMONG US
The project But we never permitted the birth of logic among us is comprised of an audio work, photographic imagery, texts, and a collective reading of the ‘Cannibalist Manifesto’ written by Oswald de Andrade (São Paulo, May 1928). Inspired by Denise Ferreira da Silva’s text ‘On difference without separability’, the project seeks to address the performance of nonlocality. Nonlocality is a concept derived from particle physics and allows me to intertwine personal narratives with the historic and the contemporary. An entanglement which is in constant flux, a dynamic force which lacks a place-based narrative and rituals for memorialization. In ‘But we never permitted the birth of logic among us’ nonlocality, seen as (spooky) actions at a distance serves as the frame for a journey to and from Athens in search of the uncanny; something familiar and at the same time radically defamiliarizing.

BECOMING PLANETARY
This has been a practice of becoming present, into my body, into a world. A process of reconsidering where I understand my body to end and the world to begin. A collection of exercises that aim to resensitise myself as part of a planetary metabolism in this time of planetary crisis. Drawing upon the methods of visualisation and somatisation used in movement practices such as Ideokinesis, Feldenkrais and Body Mind Centering, I’ve been exploring how to bring an idea to life. What might a practice of recorporialising and reconnectivity feel like and how might it begin to address the disconnection and alienation inherent within the capitalist social imaginary where I reside.

PA-AP in collaboration with Suze May Sho, Annie Fletcher, Nick Aikens and Navine G. Khan-Dossos.

As part of the Van Abbemuseum group (Practicing Articulation/ Articulating Practice) situated within the Dutch Art Institute, Archipelago is an exercise in working towards making a show co-operatively. Inviting Suze May Sho as our guest tutors, they in turn invited us into Probe to make an edition in two days. The intention has been to experiment in a short and defined amount of time, how a process and an exhibition can collide and change form through individual and group gestures and decisions. Clay acts as the central axis, informing the show’s methodology and material concerns and possibilities. A series of rules are defined together to structure time and allow the exhibition to morph rather than just being a series of final images. The edition includes images of the beginning and end of the process but also a GIF of the play and change, developing from each other as two individuals enter at a time, and work upon the authored shapes presented to them.
