Joëlle Tuerlinckx: La logique du promeneur [The Logic of the Flâneur] – A sound lecture by the artist herself
Lecture performance 05.09.13
"WORK IN PROGRESS?" — "WORLD IN PROGRESS?" — "WORD IN PROGRESS?": Wiels, Brussels, 09/2012 — Haus der Kunst, Munich, 06/2013 — Arnolfini, Bristol, 12/2013. Lecture on "PROGRESS?" — or: The triplicate story of "a retrospective from the artist’s perspective."
Joëlle Tuerlinckxs performative lecture makes use of sound, images and comments from the exhibition. By means of comparison, she discusses how the circumstances of work ("Work"), worldliness ("World") and language ("Word") develop, and demonstrates the changing relationships between these terms and the signs exchanged between them.
The sound lecture is understood as a kind of "acoustic passing through" of Tuerlinckx's work, as well as a presentation and explanation of the objects exhibited in "WORLD [K] IN PROGRESS?": lines, points and figures. Expanded museum, expanded vision, theory of walking, theory of vision, 'neutral'. Neutral gray, neutrality, norm(s), German DIN-standards, Russian pixels, American pixels. Real time – Tuerlinckx explains crystal time, returns to real time, dwells on the phenomenon of surexposition, goes from point A to point A, supplies a definition of zero, repeats a "found" sentence, defines the hard core of nothing, and uses her own resources to comment on growing development, the movement of market laws, and the creative process. With a clear rhythm and increasing tempo, Tuerlinckx elaborates on the themes most frequently employed in "WOR[L][C][D] IN PROGRESS?". In her presentation, Tuerlinckx revisits a sentence and confirms it – it stood at the top of a page in a rediscovered sketchbook: "Fellini reflects in his films according to the 'logic of the flâneur ' ... The walker is someone who accepts the idea that the spectacle has always already begun ... I am someone who needs to be shown. Or someone who, in order to see, needs to construct complicated scenarios that pass through his body at a given point in time. By walking, for example." (Serge Daney, Persévérance)
