25-10-2014 – Bernard Heidsieck, la poésie en action – by Anne-Laure Chamboissier & Philippe Franck

During FIAC 2014, the documentary film “Bernard Heidsieck, la poésie” en action will be projected for the first time at the Auditorium Grand Palais on Saturday 25 October at 6 pm, on a proposal of the galerie Natalie Seroussi.

This documentary film (by Anne-Laure Chamboissier and Philippe Franck, in collaboration with Gilles Coudert), with Bernard Heidsieck, “sound poetry” pioneer since 1955 and founder in 1962 of “poetry action”, paints a new portrait of the artist and his work, with a series of ten new interviews and audio visual archives, most often unreleased, of his sound performances.

With Bernard Heidsieck’s voice, this film is a journey into his work as well as an extremely vivid testimony on his “double life” as an artist and a banker, defining sound poetry, historically as well as in its current development.

These conversations with the artist are complemented with interviews of other major figures in sound poetry, publishing and performance: Jean-Pierre Bobillot, Olivier Cadiot, Laurent Cauwet, Anne-James Chaton, Paul-Armand Gette, John Giorno, Françoise Janicot, Arnaud Labelle-Rojoux and Jean- Jacques Lebel, as well as rare archival documents.
