Mount Analogue and Marc Matter present the work of Henri Chopin

Saturday, May 31, from 2 to 4 PM

Artexte welcomes Mount Analogue and invited guest Marc Matter, who will present Henri Chopin’s editorial experiment Revue OU / Cinquième Saison. This periodical was, in Chopin’s word, inclassable (non-classifiable) and disbanded the conventional two-dimensionality of a magazine format. Loose sheets of paper, various-sized posters, leaflets, three-dimensional poems, handcrafted objects, as well as vinyl-records conjured new forms of poetry and connected artists working in the fields of concrete and sound poetry between 1958-1974. Articulated around Marc Matter’s research, the event will also focus on two of Chopin’s collaborative film works, Pêche de nuit (1963, 11.12’, black/white) and Stridence (1977-80, 8.42’, colour).

 

Marc Matter is a sound-artist and researcher based in Brussels. His area of research is artist’s publications, Poésie Sonore, sound art and experimental cinema.

Mount Analogue is a publishing space, curatorial and editorial agency and analogue studio, initiated by Diana Kaur and Tris Vonna-Michell in 2011.
