28.11 > 03.12.017 | Ecritures project – forms in development and risk taking

Conceived by Rhizome (a Quebec organization defending living literature in connection with other contemporary disciplines) and Transcultures (Center for Digital and Sound Cultures-Charleroi), the Ecritures project intends – since 2014- to call, alternately between the Federation Wallonia-Brussels and Quebec, the poetic language and literary in all its forms.

This year, in partnership with the Center for Interuniversity Research on Quebec Culture and Literature (CRILCQ), the “Ecritures” event includes :

  • three creative residencies on literature and sound : Chantal Neveu/Qc + Nicolas Tardy/Fr + Meriol Lehmann/Qc/CH, Vincent Tholomé + Maja Jantar/Be, Vanessa Bell + Étienne Baillargeon/Qb
  • one day brainstorming (at Maison de la littérature) between creators and academics on the theme ‘Bring literature out of the book by digital’
    • session 1 ‘Text as art’ with Joanne Lalonde (researcher UQAM/Qc), Mériol Lehmann (sound artist Qc/CH)
    • session 2 ‘Machine the litterature’ with Ariane Savoie (researcher UCL-Be), Daniel Canty (writer, filmmaker/Qc), Philippe Franck (director of Transcultures-Be)
    • session 3 “Mediations” with Jean-Marc Larure (AITU-IUTA Fr/Qc), Jonathan Lamy (writer, Qc)
    • session 4 ‘Interfaces’ with Bertrand Gervais (research laboratory NT2/Qc), Simon Dumas (Rhizome/Qc)
    • round table ‘Which digital writing(s)?’ with Bertrand Gervais, Philippe Franck, Joanne Lalonde, Daniel Canty – moderators/ René Audet (CRILCQ) & Simon Dumas (writer, artistic director of Rhizome).
    • ‘Spectacle’, a poetic video installation by Philippe Franck in collaboration with Zoé Tabourdiot and with French writer Charles Pennequin will be shown at Maison de la Littérature from November 28 to December 3.
