Residency 11:11 with Alle Dicu - Film screening Mixage Monday 25th November 2019 6.30-9.30pm | Screening starts at 7pm
During her residency at Residency 11:11, artist Alle Dicu has been embarking on a collaborative experimental writing project with Croatian philosophy researcher Tajana Kosor. With an interest in the relationship between the notion of the dancefloor and waiting rooms Alle and Tajana's research starts off from a work of Maurice Blanchot called Awaiting, oblivion (1962).
Alle Dicu is a Romanian artist working predominantly across moving image, performance and text. Alle lives and works between Bucharest and Paris.
Tajana Kosor is a Croatian philosophy researcher and writer currently completing her Masters in philosophy at the university of Zagreb.
For Alle's presentation at HOXTON 253 she will be sharing some of the texts written with Tajana Kosor as well as presenting her video work Mixage.
MIXAGE, 18 minutes, french with English subtitles. François Guérif used to describe the black novel as the investigation of the sordid and dysfunctional, masked by the renovated facade of the house that we introduce to children as the world of people. Alle Dicu also investigates obscurity, revealing an aura of its own, possibly useful to those who know how to let themselves be carried in its direction. Mixage is a manifesto for a solitary, stormy and stronger eye.
