 Stéphane Querrec, performance: With My Tongue in Your Cheek, FLACC

Stéphane Querrec, form performance With My Tongue in Your Cheek

Stéphane Querrec is in Rijeka on the Kamov residency programme. In the public space he will present the performance GOSSIP mirroring his experience of Rijeka and communication with citizens. Fragile spots in social relations, matters of pleasance and (in)ability to communicate significantly characterise his work. As working material Querrec uses speech acts and unusual verbal situations. His “recitation” is performed on the fine line between staging and what we would call “natural” communication, between how we wish to present ourselves in public and what slips by accident as a less desired effect.

Stéphane Querrec, born 1979 in Biarritz/France, studied at Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Bordeaux and was a fine art researcher at Jan van Eyck Academie, Maastricht, NL. Since 2005 his work is shown at many venues, including Economy, Stills Gallery Edinburgh, UK (2013); Drifting, Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin, DE (2012); Twelve cells for the intoxicated, Brussels, BE (2012); The Waves, FRAC Pays de la Loire, FR (2010), Basis Frankfurt (2009), Moscow Biennale, Bonnefanten Museum in Maastricht and MUMOK – Museum of Modern Art Ludwig Foundation in Vienna (2008), Bonner Kunstverein and Studio 44 in Stockholm (2007) and Cinema MK2 Bibliothèque François Mitterand in Paris (2006).
Recent solo performance projects include “The divided stage”, LISTE Basel, CH (2012); “Empty Shells”, Kunstverein Leipzig, DE (2011); “With my tongue on your cheek”, Flacc Genk – Konplot Brussels – De Voorkamer Lier, Belgium, BE (2011); “Is Democracy a social Sculpture?”, Cairo (2011).

The artist Stéphane Querrec explores in different formats – film and performance – the essence of language. He involves actors of his films as well as the general public of his performances into unusual situations of language that allow thought to pause in order to provoke new forms of perception of the self.

Stéphane Querrec boravi u Rijeci u sklopu rezidencijalnog programa Kamov. Predstavit će se performansom u javnom prostoru pod nazivom TRAČANJE, koji se nadovezuje na umjetnikovo iskustvo Rijeke i komunikaciju sa stanovnicima. Krhke točke društvenih odnosa, pitanja prijaznosti i (ne)mogućnosti sporazumijevanja bitno karakteriziraju njegov rad. Pritom kao radni materijal Querrec koristi govorne činove i neuobičajene verbalne situacije. Recitaciju izvodi na granici između inscenacije i onog što bi nazvali prirodnim načinom komuniciranja, između onog kako bi se javno željeli predstaviti i onog što poput omaške iscuri kao manje željeni efekt.

Signifying nothing. I would be too ashamed.

No time. No. You first.

Move forward. No.

It’s over. It’s not.

I know I’m safe. People don’t die that easy.

I feel nothing, nothing. Much more than that.

Except that. It’s over.

It’s over. Its crap. It’s okay.

No. I don’t feel anything. Except that.

I made too many sacrifices.  You must think I am very cheap.

Push me. I’ll think about it. I don’t-

I push you. And?

See me now – I am ruined.

What if I die? It does not kill.

No one survives life. Ah really- Move on.

Push me I push you. You leave my breasts alone.

No one survives life. It’s crap. Hihihi.

Broken. When does it stop?

Also, if somebody comes. Signifying nothing.

And? I am. I’m sorry I spoke.

It’s over. Its crap. It’s okay.

To ništa ne znači. Bilo bi me previše sram.

Nemamo vremena. Ne. Ti prva.

Pomakni se naprijed. Ne.

 Gotovo je. Nije.

Znam da sam sigurna. Ljudi ne umiru tako lako.

Ništa ne osjećam, ništa. Puno više od toga.

Osim toga. Gotovo je.

Gotovo je. Sranje. U redu je.

Ne. Ništa ne osjećam. Osim toga.

Previše sam se žrtvovala.  Sigurno misliš da sam vrlo jeftina.

Gurni me. Razmislit ću. Neću-

Gurnem te. I?

Pogledaj me sad – upropašten sam.

Što ako umrem? To ne ubija.

Nitko ne preživi život. Ah, stvarno – idi dalje.

Ako me gurneš, gurnem i ja tebe. Ostavi moje grudi na miru.

Nitko ne preživi život. To je sranje. Hihihi.

Pokvarilo se. Kad se to gasi?

Također i ako netko dođe. Ništa ne znači.

I? Jesam. Oprosti što sam išta rekao.

Gotovo je. Sranje. U redu je.
