Guided by Voices



16:00 10-04-2016

In February we visited the Los Angeles Art Book Fair and were fortunate enough to record some of the readings organized and curated by David Senior of the Museum of Modern Art Library. Dubbed THE CLASSROOM, this curated series of conversations, workshops, readings and other artist-led programs is also an informal venue for artists, writers and publishers to feature new releases and present their publications. For Ja Ja Ja Nee Nee Nee, we recorded artists Sarah Rara, Hannah Black and Camille Henrot.

Besides the Classroom readings, we also have a serial feature by artist and designer Lien van Leemput. Spread out over the length of this broadcast, ‘That is a sound I don’t know. That is a sound I don’t hear.’ consists of ten episodes that last a maximum of one minute and fortyfour seconds.

‘THAT IS A SOUND I DON’T KNOW. THAT IS A SOUND I DON’T HEAR.’

Episode 01
Lien van Leemput is a Belgian designer based in Amsterdam. Her work deals with various aspects of everyday life, which she explores in the audiovisual realm. Bridging the gap between banality and the universal, the individual and the global with a hint of absurdity is her aim. With her feature series ‘That is a sound I don’t know. That is a sound I don’t hear.’, she wants us to acknowledge the murmur of sound that constantly permeates our hearing. We hear them, but do we actually listen?

SARAH RARA READING EARTH BREAKUP.

Fragment 01
Sarah Rara delivers a performative reading of poems from her new book Earth Breakup, published by Hesse Press, layering voice and recordings that playfully re-synthesize and combine fragments culled from the text. Rara’s first collection of poems, Earth Breakup, is a vivid meditation on natural resources, human-built environments, and possible planetary outcomes, articulating present and future concern for continued existence.

ELEPHANT CHILD BY CAMILLE HENROT


Camille Henrot is joined by Jarrett Gregory (Associate Curator of Contemporary Art, LACMA) and John Tain (Assistant Curator, Modern and Contemporary Collections, Getty Research Institute) to discuss her new book, Elephant Child (Inventory Press and Koenig Books, 2016). Originated during an Artist Research Fellowship at the Smithsonian Institution, which laid the groundwork for Henrot’s 2013 video Grosse Fatigue and the subsequent installation The Pale Fox (2014–15), Elephant Child represents the culmination of a long-term inquiry into the human effort to make the universe comprehensible. Designed by Project Projects, the book contains an original text by Henrot written with Clara Meister and Michael Connor, documentation, sketches, and research materials in a vivid, prismatic image of the realm of thought.

HANNAH BLACK READING FROM DARK POOL PARTY

Excerpt of Berlin-based artist Hannah Black reading from her new book Dark Pool Party. Black’s work reassembles autobiographical fragments to think about the relationship between bodies, labor, and affect. Drawing on feminist, communist, and black radical theory she explores supermarkets, ambivalence, hot babes, departures, history, and violence with characteristic wit and precision.
