Featuring Erika DeFreitas, Linda Rae Dornan, Eric Létourneau, So-Yeon Park, and Jed Speare
All events Free

Jed Speare - A QUIET ZONE II
October 7, 2004, 4 pm: Rectory Café on Ward's Island
Project discussion followed by visit to one of four QUIET ZONE sign placements

In A QUIET ZONE II, Jed Speare seeks to establish a zone of quiet through municipal channels in a neighborhood of Toronto -- not for the purpose of restricting noise, but for promoting sound awareness and contemplation. Under city by-laws, Quiet Zones regulating noise activity can be established around hospitals and retirement homes. Speare's proposal seeks to overturn and expand the notion of the Quiet Zone philosophically and idealistically, creating an occasion and site for an aesthetic experience, listening to a particular urban environment. For the past several months, Speare has been seeking the appropriate agency to initiate a formal process to create a zone on Toronto Island. More recently, Speare has been working in Toronto to meet with community members and officials and continue this process, culminating in an event on October 7 that will present his progress to-date. Come out to the Rectory Café on October 7 to join in a discussion about the project and to visit some of the QUIET ZONE signs he has installed at strategic points around the island. A QUIET ZONE II is supported in part by a residency at Do While Studio in Boston and a grant from the Nicholson Foundation.

Jed Speare is an artist from Boston working in variety of media. Initially trained in music composition, he has created works in time-based media such as video, sound, and performance art, and conceptual and community-based works for over twenty-five years. His work has been presented in festivals and exhibitions in such places as San Francisco, New York, Boston and the New England region, and abroad in Holland, Belgium, France, Italy, Poland, Croatia, Bulgaria, and Taiwan. He is a member of the Mobius Artists Group of Mobius, Boston's artist-run organization for experimental work in all media, and served as its Director from 1996 to 2004. A QUIET ZONE II is a part of body of work by Speare that deals with the sound environment. Other works in this vein include CABLE CAR SOUNDSCAPES, an album on Smithsonian Folkways Records; PEACEFUL - AN PING, a project on the soundscape of a waterfront village of Tainan, Taiwan that used sound walks of the village's oldest streets and aural histories of the residents' sonic memories to suggest that sound could be used as an element in the future restoration and urban planning of the city; AUDIOGRAMS, a text and image work which explores his experience as an industrial hearing conservationist and the effects of hearing loss; A QUIET ZONE, a photographic, text and multimedia work about a neighborhood in Fitchburg, Massachusetts by that designation; and the artists books Crushed Buckets and I Call You .

Eric Létourneau - STANDARD III
October 21, 2004, 9 pm: XPACE, 303 Augusta
presented in conjunction with the 7a*11d Int'l Festival of Performance Art

So-Yeon Park - INTER-FAITH CHANTING
Project postponed to January, 2005

This series considers acts of "listening" as they are carried out by and impact upon physical, social, political and spiritual bodies. Linda Rae Dornan presents herself as a solitary figure, sitting quietly in the city, listening -- encouraging us to also stop for a moment to hear what we normally ignore. Erika DeFreitas offers her presence for a one-on-one exercise of listening as a way of locating the self. Jed Speare lobbies the city for a quiet zone that would serve as an area of sound awareness. So-Yeon Park assembles chanters from various cultures to direct their voices toward individual participants' wishes as a way of channeling transformative energy. Eric Létourneau evokes silence as a way of marking and remembering all of the world's victims of political persecution in a multi-layered project that interrogates the role of the State and of mass media in silencing "silence" itself.

Travel support for this series comes from the New Brunswick Arts Board and the University of Kansas.

3105 Philippines

Project Description: Encounter terror will be an international open call for submission of a one-minute action art using the parameters of a one-minute video frame exposure as the art space. The theme will be about the artist's reaction on the inexhaustible volatile battle cry of war against terror. Submitted pieces will be digitally compiled and a catalogue will be printed. The deadline for submission will symbolically be on the commemoration of world trade center bombing on September 11, 2004 and the compiled product will launch simultaneously to the giant display of fireworks on July 4, 2005 to be projected in a public park. The compact disc compilation and printed catalogue will be available to the public. Another phase of the project is the projection of the compiled video on public spaces in different parts of the world. This can be negotiated with interested counterparts to coincide with their street festivals and mass gathering.

Project Objective and Relevance: Since September 11, 2002 diverse things had happen around the world under the pseudonym of war against terror. To name some incidence, the chase in Afghanistan, the Iraq occupation, the Bali bombing, the war of aggression, various war mongering, and the continuing witch-hunt for the alleged terrorist in many countries which most of us got affected in various ways. It seems that this is a never-ending legend that creates up-to-the-minute version as we can see to CNN every time we open our television for a new chapter. Terror is the most abuse word used by every political and economic faction; terror is another word to create a culture of horror. At this moment it is time to gather the artists' reaction from different countries and witness how the people are affected by these incidents. How the people of different nationality encounter terror. In this project, the objective is to gather the world's views thru artists respond on the prevailing! subject to be accumulated in a compact disc. Knowing peoples reaction around the world for a certain subject is an arena of intellectual discourse. The digital compilation in a compact disc will be available in every household thus democratizing the art space, which can be seen in their own bedroom with their television or personal computer. The content of the project can start a conscious dissertation on how everyone is affected by the prominent forces behind the societies structures and the form can democratize everyone's access to art.

9. EVENT: "le 6e mois de la performance" La Centrale (Montreal)
October 2004; Source: La Centrale

(français suivant)

lspecial edition  
schedules in process

Can the structure of an art manifestation respond to the structure of performance art?
With this 6th edition of le mois, we are creating a platform for creation, exchange and dissemination via a performance lab, workshops, discussions, conferences, comments, and the exhibition of traces of our actions. Our goal is to comment on the world. To express. To shock. To amuse. To question. A direct link between the artist and the public. Through art...to analyse, to think, to feel, to see, to listen. To be in a space of dialogue and risk, sharing knowledge and process, through exercises and self expression, with documentation and traces of what happens collected in the gallery and on the Web.
An entire mois of activities unfolds in a sporadic and continuous manner, both planned and improvised, public and private, experimental and traditional, informal and official, fixed and floating. The 6e mois de la performance is an experiment, a research project in and of itself; this edition dreams of creating a rich and open environnement for its artists and their public. This event is inspired by the 2004-2005 programming theme, anidentity, formulated in response to our centre's 30 years of herstory (1974-2004). It plays with the notion of loss or alterations in the meaning of identity. Anidentity may be understood as what is not defined or closed, it is what moves, evolves, is fluid and in the process of being defined.

To bring a little part of the world here. For the initiated, the curious, neighbours and passers-by, all are welcome!         

IDEAS FOR THE LAB
Sylvie is thinking of a durational performance, of collecting body parts of other people on her own body.
Essi, of exploring the space between people: the air, language, skin, fear, the i-don't-know-if-i-can-trust-you.
Marja, of making visible her thoughts and emotions in Mtl, by translating them into texts, images or actions.
Tagny, of creating a public forum on surveillance mechanisms in Mtl www.evidenceresearchcentre.ca
Tania, of archiving her performative travels during two flights between Chicago and Mtl, and make a booklet.
Glenda, of intervening in the little parc in front of the gallery, with artificial maple leaves.
Aiyyana, of performing peace piece 3, a 36hr-long intervention at the gallery and the foot of the mountain.
Margaret, of acting out daily activities such as playing cards, baking bread, and dancing on the white line.
Thirza, of becoming Johnny, a transgender butch inspired from the 50-60s badboy, who visits the big city.

édition spéciale 
horaires en processus

Est-ce que la structure d'une manifestation artistique peut répondre à la structure de la performance?
Avec cette 6e édition du mois, nous offrons une plate-forme propice à la création, l'échange et la diffusion. Comment? Par un laboratoire d'expérimentation, des ateliers, des rencontres, des conférences et des commentaires, puis par une exposition des traces du mois. Pour commenter le monde. Pour exprimer. Pour déplaire. Pour s'extasier. Pour questionner. Dans le temps. Un état direct entre l'émettrice et le public. Par l'art. Pour analyser. Pour penser. Pour sentir. Pour voir. Pour écouter. Pour vivre. Pour être dans un espace de dialogue, de risque, de partage de connaissances et de processus, d'exercice, d'expression, puis, par souci de documentation, d'archivage et de transmission, des traces en galerie et sur le web.
Un mois d'activités manifestées de façon sporadique et continuelle, annoncée et improvisée, publique et privée, expérimentale et organisée, informelle et officielle, fixe et flottante. Le 6e mois de la performance représente une expérimentation, une recherche en soi; cette édition rêve de créer un environnement riche et poreux pour ses artistes et leur public. Cet événement s'inspire de la thématique de la programmation 2004.2005, nommée anidentité, formulée en réponse aux 30 années d'existence du centre (1974-2004) et visant la notion de perte ou d'ouverture d'un sens. Anidentité peut se comprendre comme ce qui n'est pas défini ni clos, comme ce qui bouge, évolue, est fluide et en processus de définition.

Pour amener une mini partie du monde ici. Pour tout le monde! pour les initiés, pour les curieux, pour nos voisins, pour les passants.

LES IDÉES POUR LEUR LABORATOIRE
Sylvie pense à une performance de longue durée, à recueillir des parties du corps des autres sur le sien.
Essi, à explorer l'espace entre nous; l'air, la langue, la peur, le je-ne-sais-pas-si-je-peux-te-faire-confiance.
Marja, à rendre visible ses pensées et ses émotions à Mtl, sous forme de textes, d'images ou d'actions.
Tagny, à un forum public portant sur les mécanismes de surveillance à Mtl www.evidenceresearchcentre.ca
Tania, à archiver ses déplacements performatifs durant deux vols entre Chicago et Mtl, et d'en faire un livret.
Glenda, à une intervention dans le petit parc devant la galerie, avec des feuilles d'érables artificielles.
Aiyyana, à peace piece 3, une intervention de 36 hres devant la galerie et la statue au pied de la montagne.
Margaret, à des activités quotidiennes comme jouer aux cartes, faire du pain, et danser sur la ligne blanche.
Thirza, à devenir johnny, transgender butch inspiré du badboy des années 50-60, qui visite la grande ville.

October 10, 2004; Source: Boréal Art/Nature Artist-run Centre

(français suivant)

Invitation to CENTRE ARTTERRE: Sunday, 10 October 2004, 1 to 5 p.m.
6240 Chemin de La Minerve, Labelle, in the Upper Laurentians, north of Montreal.

We cordially invite the art community and the public to the event Reconnaissance / Recognition at the Centre ArtTerre in the Upper Laurentians. Here is an occasion for a gathering in the Laurentian forest at Boréal Art/Nature's new base for creation and diffusion. Centre ArtTerre consists of a heritage woodland site recently bequeathed to Boréal Art/Nature as a conservancy and forest interpretation centre; it now becomes an ideal place where the relationship between contemporary art and nature can be explored.

Our first full year of activities in this vast natural environment calls for an exploration of place in physical as well as symbolic terms; it also includes an expression of gratefulness towards those who have preserved this priceless heritage and who have passed it on to Boréal Art/Nature. This is a time to reflect on the phenomenon of a land devoted to art; a time also to think of ways to preserve, develop, and share this natural and creative resource.

The call to a gathering on 10 October is an invitation to discover this beautiful spread of forest which—while being a unique space for contemporary art—is perfectly suited to Boréal Art/Nature's creation and research mandate, focused as it is on the history, development, and present state of relationships between art and nature. Here is a chance to meet the Boréal Art/Nature group, to discuss what it means for the art community and the public that—within an explosively developing Laurentian context—a territory was given over to a contemporary art project connected with environmental awareness.

Among those present will be the artists participating in the present series of residencies entitled Reconnaissance / Recognition : Carl David Ruttan, Kinga Araya, Constanza Silva.

You are also invited to explore the splendid trails of Centre ArtTerre by choosing among diverse guided walking tours.

Welcome to this colourful autumn afternoon.

Resource for sharing rides from Montreal: Tedi (514) 278-3646.

Invitation au Centre ArtTerre, dimanche le 10 octobre de 13 à 17 heures
6240 Chemin de La Minerve, Labelle, Hautes-Laurentides.

La communauté artistique et le public sont cordialement invités à une journée de reconnaissance au Centre ArtTerre à Labelle dans les Hautes-Laurentides. C’est l’occasion d’une rencontre dans la forêt laurentienne au nouveau centre de création et de diffusion de Boréal Art/Nature. Le Centre ArtTerre est constitué d’une terre forestière patrimoniale vouée à la conservation et a l’interprétation de la forêt, récemment léguée à Boréal Art/Nature, qui en fait un lieu privilégié d’exploration des rapports entre l’art contemporain et la nature.

La première année d’activité dans ce vaste environnement naturel est sous le signe de la reconnaissance : exploration physique et symbolique du territoire, mais aussi expression du sentiment de reconnaissance envers ceux qui ont conservé ce joyau patrimonial et qui l’ont légué en héritage à Boréal Art/Nature. C’est l’occasion d’une réflexion sur le sens à donner au phénomène que représente une terre consacrée à l’art, ainsi que la façon de conserver, de développer et de partager cette ressource naturelle et créatrice.

La rencontre du 10 octobre est une invitation à la découverte de ce beau coin de forêt, qui s’il demeure un espace singulier pour l’art contemporain, n’en est pas moins tout à fait adapté au mandat de recherche et de création de Boréal Art/Nature axé sur l’histoire, le développement et l’actualité des rapports entre l’art et la nature. C’est l’occasion de rencontrer le groupe Boréal Art/Nature, de discuter des enjeux que représente pour la communauté artistique et le public, une terre consacrée à l’art actuel en regard d’une prise de conscience environnementaliste dans le milieu laurentien en développement fulgurant. Les artistes impliqués dans la série de résidences en cours seront présents : Carl David Ruttan, Kinga Araya, Constanza Silva. Vous êtes par ailleurs invités à explorer, les magnifiques sentiers du Centre ArtTerre, par l’entremise de divers randonnées pédestres guidées, selon vos capacités, vos goûts et votre disponibilité.

Bienvenue à cet après-midi d’automne coloré.
S’il vous plaît, veuillez faire suivre ce message à ceux que vous croyez intéressés.
