Current artist in residence Alle Dicu has been spending time with us here in London 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 waitingrooms Alle and Tajana's research starts off from a work of Maurice Blanchot called "Waiting, 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 present 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."
FILM SCREENING WILL START AT 7PM
