"je suis une oeuvre d'art : oui, non, peut être"
Am I an artwork? Yes, no, maybe.
Performance : lecture/battle , 24 09 2006 11.00h
La Panacée, Montpellier.
During the show "Chauffe Marcel !" Curated by Emmanuel Latreille, director of the FRACLR.
"I am an artwork, yes, no, maybe" has been commissioned by the FRACLR in 2002. The piece collected visitor reactions and traced them by IP to influence the colours of the page layout. This was a way to point to the fact that the visitor wasn't anonymous, something a lot of visitors weren't aware of in 2002.
More important, and still actual, the piece permitted to openly ask if a piece of "net art" could be "art" on the site of an official French art institution.
The 24th of September all the French entries of the piece will be read in public during a performance in the show called "Chauffe Marcel ! " organised by the same art institution.
Two microphones will be placed about 10 meters one from another. One will be used to amplify the "yes" phrases the other the "no" phrases. français
