Installation || Parole parole - unhollow words
|| Ann Antidote Lun Ărio
Audio and giant rope bondage installation, comissioned for QuEAR 2015 Parole, parole - presents a space delimited by a rope bondage sculpture â some people affirm it is vulva(e) shaped - articulated with sound samples (with content pertinent to many different queer thematics) fired by apparently random reasons (...) reflecting (or not) a collective dynamic and decision making. The sonic output, voicing statements ranging from precarity to migration, besides and also sexuality/emotionality, is an attempt at instantaneous music composition, a set of political statements, a warning, a celebration, a critic and maybe an oracle, bringing back âqueerâ to its place of social criticism, cultural intervention, resistance to normalization: post homosexual, post gender, and beyond the cultural chic - it sometimes becomes - which hollows âqueerâ of its meaning and power, turning it into âjust wordsâ (âParole, paroleâ). The name, formulation and many other things in this installation, would not be possible without Preciado's âParole de Queerâ text, and is meant as a homage to it.
