PERFORMANCY FORUM XXI: ARS ONOMATOPOETICA

http://www.panoplylab.org/performancy.html

PERFORMANCY FORUM is a suddenly serious series, a selection of serial sociological faux pas. It is shouting HEY! in public, it refers only to itself, it is working class, it is phenomimes and psychomimes, it is phonosemantic (words, notes), and ideophonetic (sounds, actions, movements), and now its racket resounds: CLUNK, CLICK, BOING, MEOW.

....and surprise guests!

In March, PF will feature performance-disciplined artists whose work deals with being itself, constructing reality instead of being constructed by reality, not mirroring it, representing it, nor otherwise being anything other than what is Is, in and of itself. Onomatopoeia, that term for words that are both an utterance themselves and the word for the utterance, becomes a poetics of self-made feedback loops, of cyclical material, gestural and often violent (WHACK!) as it meets Ars, slang for “tough guy/working class/bully/redneck/ thug,” becoming work that asserts itself, theorizes itself, pushing other images out of the way, strange and too big for constraint. This work grew up being bullied, now it is a mean machine, scarred and bitter, or maybe it is just plain self-assertive, in a world where art is supposed to lay down meekly and take it.

We ask,does a mode of self-reflexivity make for work that is autonomous in its performance, i.e. non-reactive to its audience or does it make the work more reactive in its concrete insistence on existence? How to artists perceive their work as “pieces,” “material” or otherwise objectify process into product? (un)ZIP, your mouth, eyes, mind, etc.
