SE LA VIE, BODIES IN REST: PART 1

SE LA VIE, BODIES IN REST: PART 1

Presented by Banyi Huang and Emma Yi"

“As a type of anonymous personal advertisement that arises from urban encounters, 'missed connections' has been popularized by sites like New York's craigslist, or London's "Rush-hour Crush" column. Stolen glances, a cold shoulder, then a figure receding into the crowd. "Se La Vie, Bodies Need Rest" takes this trope as a starting point, exploring the fertile ground of projected desires, transient movement, and liminal interactions. As the body incessantly navigates the specific configurations of architectural surroundings, grimy screeches of public transportation, and the amorphous, shifting tunnels of interior space, it is invariably situated somewhere between movement and rest, intensity and stillness, masked selves and cathartic release.

"Se La Vie, Bodies Need Rest" is composed of two parts, and each features four performances that revolve around relationality, public and private, privilege and precarity. Maskedness is not only a mode of self-protection founded upon ingrained social stratas, it also paves the way for ritualistic intervention and self-reflection. Expanding on the term network latency, which is mostly used to describe various types of delay that occur in data communication over networks and online media, this sense of dislocation can be generally applied to broader connections and disconnections that transpire over physical-virtual spaces, in the form of glitches, temporal suspensions, and sporadic retreat into interiority. Amidst somatic sway and multidirectional instability, lies the possibility for the weary body to recuperate.”

Elements

A collaborative exhibition of queer and feminist artists, in its second iteration, working in a variety of mediums whose work interacts with the political, social, and cultural conditions of gender, sexuality, economics, and politics and exploring ideas of bodies, time, emotional labor, place, and the interplay between identity and medium. This project aims to think about what it means to be an individual, in a collective, and find a safe space to process the political trauma that is wreaking havoc on intersectional bodies. This means women, queers, immigrants, people of color, folks with different ability statuses, among other factors under current political, economic, and cultural conditions. The artists employ different tools including sculpture, spatial intervention, illustration, video, audio, text, performance, and social media to explore such ideas and how it relates to them.

In this the second iteration of Our Elements, we explore the oppression and emancipation of our bodies and perceptions, the gift of sight afforded by being an other, love and connection, loss and moving on.

“This project aims to think about what it means to be an individual, in a collective, and find a safe space to process the political trauma that is wreaking havoc on intersectional bodies.”

Our Elements 2019 is possible through the generous support of the Lower East Side Girls Club”

Dance-a-lorus

“A festival tradition, Dance-a-lorus pushes boundaries by pairing filmmakers and choreographers for an exploration of film and dance. This live stage event encourages collaboration as a fundamental form of creative expression. From abstraction to documentary, film and choreography come together in an experimental showcase of the region’s most talented artists. “

Blueprint to Oust Duterte with video edited by Natalie C. Cook.

Blueprint to Oust Duterte; Rina Espiritu
In 1989, the Treaty of Paris was signed by USA and Spain. Fast forward to now, why is the western mass media all of a sudden interested in the war on drugs and human rights violation in the Philippines? Aided by videos of Pres. Duterte’s public speeches not highlighted by the western mass media, Blueprint to Oust Duterte puts forth a different point of view.

This Is It

“Wednesday, September 26 at The Glove, 8:30 pm: $8

If you were planning on going to a show tonight and being rowdy and inattentive, I’d advise you not to come to The Glove. “I will pick you up and slide you down the stairs if you are shitty,” notes Lorene Bouboushian, the host for the evening of performance art, and you’d best heed their warning. So, get your respectful and enthusiastic self to Bushwick to see some weird and wonderful work by noise-drag performer Reagan Holiday, queer Latinx performance artist Sierra Ortega, multidisciplinary artist Rina Espiritu, and a butt-tastic collaboration between Lily Chambers and Hannah Kallenbach.”

ABOUT B + B

Bedford + Bowery is where downtown Manhattan and north Brooklyn intersect. Produced by NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute in collaboration with New York magazine, B + B covers the East Village, Lower East Side, Williamsburg, Greenpoint, Bushwick, and beyond. Want to contribute? Send a tip?
