Transmissive Actions: Writing at Work in a Digital Context

C. T.Paris

Workshop on Mondays from May 12 to June 23, from 2 to 5 pm. The schedule can be modified by the participants and the trainers according to the availability of each and the planned vacations.

The workshop will be offered in French, but discussions and texts can be done in English or French.

Critical Senses
Through the medium of PHYSICAL/ITY, BIAN 2014 will invest the polysensory experience of the body at work, exploring the senses that are woven and emerge in this encounter. This moment is propitious to put into play what it means to write in connection with the work, and to do it “in the times” of the digital. Writing actualizes the author’s relationship to the work, making tangible the subtle and combined activity of his sensory, affective, emotional, intuitive, cognitive and imaginary body. Here, it takes singularly life in the dialogue that it develops with an existing “thing”, the work, vector of a world with variable realities that the digital intensifies by inducing dynamic, labile, fragmentary, contingent properties, inviting the interlocutor to engage in the creation. In front of so many presences and effects, comes the idea of activating forms of language transversal to the historical, critical and theoretical postures, approaching as close as possible to the work and manifesting this experience of sensitive transmission right in the text, to put it “in continuation” by the reading.

Chantal T.Paris is a writer and independent researcher in contemporary art. She has a Master in Art History from the Université du Québec à Montréal. Her writing and projects explore relations between writing and art from a post-critical perspective.

Both a writer and director, Daniel Canty’s writing occupies a central place in his work, where literature and publishing cross paths with cinema and theatre, new media and visual arts. He is currently preparing Le livre de chevet, a collective work dedicated to sleep, which follows La Table des matières, about food, and Cité Selon, about the city.

Caroline Loncol Daigneault is an author, researcher and artist who has followed Vida Simon’s work since 2003, from Montreal to the Laurentians to Newfoundland. She studied visual arts at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and art history at the Université de Montréal, and holds a master’s degree in art history from UQÀM on the problematics of environmental art in Québec with the Boréal Art/Nature centre in the Laurentians as case study.

Érik Bordeleau is a postdoctoral researcher at the Université libre de Bruxelles and a lecturer at UQAM. He is the author of Foucault anonymat (Le Quartanier, 2012), which won the 2013 Spirale Eva-Le-Grand Essay Prize. He completed a PhD in comparative literature at the University of Montreal on the relationship between anonymity and politics in contemporary Chinese cinema and art. He is interested in the speculative turn in contemporary thought as well as the mode of presence of gods, spectres and other spirits in East Asian cinema.

Writer and interdisciplinary artist, Chantal Neveu chooses writing as an avenue for exploration and knowledge. She has published Une spectaculaire influence (Éditions L’Hexagone), coït and mentale (La Peuplade) as well as èdres followed by èdres | dehors (É=É).

Éric Legendre is an archivist, library technician, researcher and cultural worker in a broad field that includes archival science, information science, history and culture. He specializes in artistic practices related to new technologies, audiovisual, visual arts, music and literature.
