¿Duerme usted Señor Presidente?
¿Qué está pasando en el Circuito del arte Venezolano? ¿De qué manera el “Periodo Chavez” afectó la producción de imágenes, las investigaciones de nuestros artistas y al circuito nacional de galerías y museos? ¿Que está (...) 
 haciendo esa generación de artistas y curadores que fueron obligados a vivir en el exilio? ¿Qué opciones tienen los que se quedaron? Estas son preguntas frecuentes en las inauguraciones de bienales, ferias o eventos internacionales… la respuesta casi siempre queda en el aire.
Didi-Huberman habla de una operación doble del arte, que pareciera revalorizarse en un momento de urgencia como el venezolano: “volver visible la tragedia en la cultura (para no separarla de su historia), pero también hacer visible la cultura en la tragedia (para no separarla de su memoria)”. Este planteamiento explica el objetivo central de FOCUS VENEZUELA, un proyecto que nace gracias al generoso apoyo de Art Marbella y Maëlle Galerie en París, como un ejercicio visual para tratar de comprender en imágenes la crisis actual de Venezuela y aproximarse a la production estética contemporánea de este país. Desde los límites del arte político, esta muestra es un ejercicio visual de resistencia frente a las estrategias de desaparición que ha implementado el Estado, de cara a la creación contemporánea Venezolana. Se hace énfasis en las estéticas marginales que no están representadas en la colecciones de los museos y que nunca se ven en las bienales; en los artistas jóvenes que no existen para el estado por ser acusados de contrarrevolucionarios o “escuálidos” ( burgueses).

En principio, debemos que aclarar que FOCUS VENEZUELA está conformado por un grupo artistas internacionales. La selección reúne un grupo de creadores venezolanos, en diálogo con tres artistas de Maëlle Galería, que hicieron obras en solidaridad con Venezuela, y dos figuras claves del arte político: el cineasta Bruce Labruce y la legendaria ORLAN. Las obras seleccionadas escapan a cualquier intención geoestética que pretenda definir un concepto de ” Arte Venezolano”. El proyecto fue concebido como un caleidoscopio de imágenes que evitan la denuncia, pero que detonan bombas sobre nuestra psique para reflexionar sobre la tragedia de un país cuya ingenuidad no lo salva.

El petróleo, como un Maná único y sagrado, lo vemos en la espiral de barriles hecha por Rolando Pena en 1986. ORLAN nos hace reflexionar sobre la industria de la belleza, en este contexto la venezolana, que a pesar de la crisis humanitaria sigue estando en la vanguardia internacional y marca un referente de éxito para las niñas de las favelas que sueñan con ser reinas. Bruce Labruce satirisa sobre el comunismo chick ,Loyola con sus chatarras nos anuncia, desde la década de los ochenta, una crisis de

identidad nacional. Juan Carlos Rodríguez nos recuerda nuestra indulgencia frente a la Venezuela rural y nuestras fronteras; Erika Ordosgoitti se enfrenta a las ruinas de nuestro sistema institucional y cultural; Iván Candeo lanza dardos sobre las relaciones populistas con el pueblo, y Jean-Fraçoise Boclè nos introduce en los rituales de santería y las dictaduras.

En estas obras se hace evidente un proceso similar al que se ha generado en la cultura de los venezolanos: la resistencia al sueño de progreso moderno y una valoración de estética precaria; el rancho, lo inconcluso y la desolación; la resistencia a la cubanización y el dogma político, entre otros.

Venezuela tiene más de 100 días de protestas ininterrumpidas y alrededor de 90 muertos. Esta es una realidad que supera cualquier diferencia política: estamos en guerra hace tiempo y el circuito del arte no puede guardar silencio… Más que necesario, es urgente un distanciamiento crítico ante cualquier fe ciega o dogma ideológico; ante cualquier construcción de relato que intenta sostenerse por la fuerza o a través de la violencia; ante cualquier etiqueta, prejuicio o asesinato.

Political Jam


Performance POLITICAL JAM, Alianza Francesa de Barranquilla (Colombia), in the frame of the artists in residence of Jean-François Boclé (June-July) at Fundación Divulgar - Plataforma Caníbal (Barranquilla). 13th of July 2017. Within the framework of the French year in Colombia 2017.

Curator: Jayder Orsini (
Fundación Divulgar - Plataforma Caníbal ).
 
El artista de Martinica Jean François Boclé, radicado en París, estará en Residencia Caníbal durante el  mes de junio y julio, donde explorará el territorio e historia de las bananeras en el Caribe Colombiano mediante un reencuentro con “Cien años de soledad” de gabriel García Márquez. El artista trabaja en (...)
 la zona bananera y realizará intervenciones en la ciudad de Barranquilla.

POLITICAl JAM
Jean-François Boclé, "Si mi América ha sobrevivido, en parte, al primer paso de un Colón Cristóbal y a los muelles de puertos (in)humanos, y si América ha sobrevivido a ella misma en los siglos siguientes, es porque el hombre ha inventado allí un “dejarse atravesar” por la violencia, la toxicidad, condición de la constitución de un “Nosotros” americano.

Frente a esta americanidad, este performance culinario convida al público a ingerir, durante un “gran abbuffata” (1) de palabras, una mermelada constituida por esta starlet warholiana negligente y sin complejo, ícono de un exotismo racializado, en la raíz etimológica de nuestras Repúblicas bananeras, esas de los Sures y de los Nortes.

Una mermelada de bananas “bipolares”: para unos la fruta vendida en los supermercados, para otros, en los territorios de producción, el veneno de un monocultivo de exportación.

En la olla se va a fusionar azúcar de caña, canela, nuez moscada, vainas de vainilla, cáscaras y jugo de limón, ron ambarino con el púlpito de las bananas escarificadas (2). Al público se le dará al final de la cocción un tarro de “Political Jam” (Mermelada política).Un « dejarse atravesar » para canibalizar la distopia, y metabolizar la política."

1 – La gran abbuffata (1973), película dirigida por Marco Ferreri. Cuatro hombres están encerrados en una casa por lo que ellos llaman un “seminario gastronómico”, pero en realidad para participar en un suicidio colectivo por comer hasta la muerte: Marcello (Mastroianni), Philippe (Noiret), Michel (Piccoli) y Ugo (Tognazzi).
2 – Cincuenta escritos tallados sobre la piel inmaculada de las bananas producidas en Barranquilla y en la Zona Bananera durante la residencia de Jean-François Boclé en la Fundación Divulgar – Plataforma Caníbal, una “Poética bananera” para pensar la distopia del Macondo caribeño colombiano enunciado por Gabriel García Márquez en “Cien años de Soledad”, y la del Macondo caribeño martiniqués y guadalupense.


Political Jam, se presentó por primera vez en la 12ª Bienal de Dakar en Senegar, en el año 2016.

Para Orsini, “Comer bananas es un acto Caníbal, ya que es como comer a las personas que trabajan largas jornadas en la plantaciones bananeras. También es tragarse a trozos una parte de la trágica historia de las masacres de las bananeras en los años veintes en el Caribe colombiano. El banano más que una fruta exótica, representa la imposición de una ideología de la economía, la sociedad y la cultura en el Caribe. Me gusta como Boclé la usa para desactivar los relatos colonizadores y racistas que se posan sobre ella, es como si en cada acción exorcizara al fruto y a la sociedad de esa carga histórica”

Jean-François Boclé is invited for the third time in Colombia - at Mapa Teatro / Teatro Colon (Bogotá) and at the Bienal Salon (inter)-nacional de los artistas (Medellin) - to continue a dialogue started in 2005 with Colombia.
A dialogue already initiated during his adolescence when he read Hundred years of solitude, a high place of 
(...)
 the Magic Reality, where Gabriel García Márquez returns to the too real "Massacre of the banana plantations" (1928, region of Cienaga-Santa Marta), situated, in Hundred years of solitude, in the imaginary village of Macondo. Boclé will make memorial of this (global) dystopia, dialoguing / collaborating partly with agricultural workers from banana plantations as well as with those who made the choice in the last decade of rural exodus (Barranquilla and Santa Marta region).

Fundamentación y objetivo: Prácticamente desde los inicios de la civilización humana, en tiempos de la prehistoria, el  (...) 
 hombre se ha representado a sí mismo y en relación con su entorno en diferentes superficies. Incluso, su propio cuerpo se ha convertido en soporte de creaciones y modificaciones que realzan su estatus como objeto y sujeto de subjetividades. Por ello, en términos de figuración la presencia del cuerpo como forma representada es una de las más antiguas dentro de la historia de nuestra especie.
Anterior a la articulación de conceptos como arte, el cuerpo ha estado presente de forma recurrente dentro de los temas preferidos del Arte. El retrato, el desnudo, las escenas de género o costumbristas, los temas bíblicos, históricos o mitológicos, e incluso el paisaje han inmortalizado un sinnúmero de cuerpos durante el devenir del tiempo. Y en esta acción el cuerpo no solo ha sido objeto de la mímesis, sino que se ha transformado en centro de múltiples relecturas y metáforas. 
Parafraseando a Carlos Jáuregui, en su libro Canibalia. Canibalismo, calibanismo, antropofagia cultural y consumo en América Latina, el cuerpo no es solo el contenedor de múltiples tropos, sino que en su relación con el mundo circundante este sirve para escribir y dramatizar el texto social. Por ello no es de extrañar que el cuerpo como terreno de múltiples negociaciones se convierta, más allá de objeto de representación, en sujeto de una práctica política activa y cotidiana. 
Múltiples son las batallas entre diferentes grupos de poder para establecer un canon sobre el cuerpo y normalizar sus relaciones con el universo circundante. Un cuerpo bello, un cuerpo atlético, un cuerpo saludable, un cuerpo erotizante, un cuerpo prohibido, etc. son algunas de las cápsulas de sentidos que cada día consumimos a través de los medios masivos de comunicación. Estas, articulan nuestras relaciones sociales y se convierten de forma subrepticia en prácticas y conductas reproducidas de forma acrítica e inconsciente en la mayoría de los casos. 
Dentro de la construcción occidental del mundo, quizás pueda advertirse la dimensión política del cuerpo y su importancia desde los tiempos de la civilización romana en un elemento que ha llegado hasta nuestros días y podía marcar la diferencia entre un hombre libre y un esclavo: el habeas corpus. Analizando el origen de este concepto vemos que proviene del latín  habeas corpus [ad subiiciendum] ‘que tengas [tu] cuerpo [para exponer]’, "tendrás tu cuerpo libre", siendo hábeās la segunda persona singular del presente de subjuntivo del verbo latino habēre (‘tener’). Este concepto como recurso legal hoy en día también define el destino de un hombre ante los caminos de la libertad y la reclusión.
Por todo lo antes expuesto, es que este proyecto toma como título “La mística del cuerpo. Habeas corpus ad subiiciendum”, pues su interés radica en explorar desde el arte, a partir de diferentes aproximaciones y soportes, esa capacidad polisémica (totalmente mística) que hace del cuerpo un tropo inagotable. El subtítulo, además de completar la intencionalidad temática, introduce e ilustra a la operativa de la muestra. El artista expone su parte cuerpo artístico y a sí mismo, queda desnudo ante el espectador y genera un diálogo con su(s) contexto(s). De aquí también que la muestra plantee una itinerancia como ejercicio de relectura y resemantización constante. Un proceso de carga y descarga de sentidos en relación con los espacios donde se muestre la exposición, escogidos con anterioridad, intencionalidad y claramente de forma premeditada; así como por la incorporación de determinados elementos locales que dialoguen con el tema en cada una de las sedes expositivas. 
Por ejemplo en el caso cubano la muestra se realizará en el Pabellón Cuba, un espacio realizado dentro de los códigos del Brutalismo, donde una de las características más llamativas de la construcción fue el hecho de dejar los materiales al descubierto para explotar su capacidad expresiva. De igual forma, a nivel simbólico este espacio fue construido para mostrar el devenir del país, tanto a nivel arquitectónico como histórico, en un solo cuerpo. En la inauguración, participarán además tatuadores locales que trabajarán sobre el público en diálogo con los artistas.

Dystopies/Utopies/Hétérotopies


Artists' Talk
Monday 12th June 2017 6pm
La Colonie (barrée) 128 rue la fayette 75010 Paris
La Colonie

La quatrième édition de L’Atelier, un lieu de travail collaboratif imaginé par Françoise Vergès réunissant artistes et chercheurs, ouvrira « ses portes » au public à La Colonie, pour une assemblée autour d’un manifeste de l’Utopie décoloniale.

L’Atelier IV, qui a pour (...) 

 titre « Dystopies/Utopies/Hétérotopies », est partie de ce constat : dans les Suds, la dystopie est devenue un élément de la vie sociale – génocides, traite, esclavage, colonialisme, massacres, travail forcé, économie de dépendance, impérialisme, guerres. L’utopie est ici entendue comme énergie et force de soulèvement, comme invitation aux rêves émancipateurs et comme geste de rupture : oser penser au-delà de ce qui se présente comme « naturel », « pragmatique », « raisonnable ».

Au cours de deux journées précédentes, lors d’assemblées et d’une marche en forêt, L’Atelier aura rassemblé les éléments de cette utopie. La forêt a été choisie pour sa force évocatrice et symbolique : lieu des esclaves marrons, des esprits, des sorcières, des bandits rebelles, des résistants. Elle est le lieu d’une utopie historiquement située et le geste symbolique qui l’a institué – le Serment du Bois Caïman le 14 août 1791 dans ce qui deviendra Haïti.

Avec : Benedicte Alliot (directrice de la Cité internationale des arts), Lotte Arndt (historienne de l’art), Kader Attia (artiste), Kemi Bassene (artiste), Eva Barois De Caevel (commissaire d'exposition), Jean-François Boclé (artiste), Seloua Luste Boulbina (philosophe), Fabiana Ex-Souza (artiste, chercheuse), Odile Burluraux (conservateure du patrimoine), Marc Cheb Sun (écrivain), Gerty Dambury (écrivain, metteure en scène, comédienne), Myriam Dao (artiste),Yo-Yo Gonthier (artiste), Christine Eyene (historienne de l’art, commissaire d'exposition), Sara Guindani-Riquier (directrice de la recherche au Collège d’études mondiales), Antoine Idier (ENSPAC), Léopold Lambert (architecte et éditeur), Olivier Marboeuf (directeur de l’espace Khiasma, artiste), Carpanin Marimoutou (professeur de littérature), Myriam Mihindou (artiste), Yves Mintoogue (artiste), Pascale Obolo (Akrikaada), Nataša Petrešin Bachelez (commissaire indépendante et éditrice de L’Internationale Online), Séverine Roussel (architecte), Cynthia Voza Lusilu (artiste), Mawena Yehouessi (Afro-futurisme), Philippe Zourgane (architecte).

Bétonsalon – Center for Art and Research invited three (...) 
 groups of researchers and artists to propose a series of public programs dedicated to the multiplicity and fragility of contemporary identities. Each event will take place within Emmanuelle Lainé’s exhibition Incremental Self: Transparent Bodies.

Tarek Lakhrissi will talk about films and texts addressing language and poetry as utopias necessary to find oneself.

Mükerrem Tuncay will present the video Great Depression; a metaphorical means to address her “foreign” status.

Nathalie Muchamad will talk about the syncretism of the Indonesian context, wondering whether it can be perceived as a space for reflection similar to the creolization process undergoing in the French Caribbean.

This round table will be punctuated by two short videoconferences:

Claire Tancons, curator, based in New Orleans (Louisiana, United States of America), will comment on her curatorial practice.

The MEMORIAL ACTe, Caribbean Center of Expression and Memory of Slavery and Slave Trade based in Pointe-à-Pitre, will comment on its action and focus on the function of carnivals within the Guadeloupean Caribbean-French society.

Le sym­po­sium Autohistorias [1] se veut un moment fédé­ra­teur de réflexion sur le rôle à jouer par l’ins­ti­tu­tion artis­ti­que dans (...) 

 un monde pris dans le tour­ment de pola­ri­sa­tions natio­na­lis­tes et sépa­ra­tis­tes, tiraillée dans des débats iden­ti­tai­res favo­ri­sant une frag­men­ta­tion crois­sante entre les indi­vi­dus.

Une qua­ran­taine de pro­fes­sion­nels enga­gés dans un tra­vail de réé­cri­ture de l’his­toire de l’art élaboreront col­lec­ti­ve­ment un récit commun fait d’une mul­ti­pli­cité de foyers artis­ti­ques (lieux d’art, écoles, col­lec­tifs ou événements) et de tra­jec­toi­res indi­vi­duel­les d’artis­tes ayant cir­culé au cours du XXe et XXIe siècle à tra­vers plu­sieurs cultu­res et hori­zons de pensée.
Nous réflé­chi­rons avec eux à com­ment l’ins­ti­tu­tion au sens large et les musées peu­vent mieux repré­sen­ter cette diver­sité tout en déve­lop­pant la recher­che et les connexions avec une plu­ra­lité d’acteurs de la société. Le patri­moine, l’archive et les col­lec­tions muséa­les seront mobi­li­sés pour remet­tre en ques­tion leur mise en forme, mise en ordre et mise en cir­cu­la­tion. Nous inven­te­rons des uto­pies comme des formes de vie alter­na­ti­ves pro­po­sant d’expé­ri­men­ter des métho­des d’ensei­gne­ment de péda­go­gie cher­chant à mieux habi­ter les fron­tiè­res, pour mieux les dés­ta­bi­li­ser.

[1] Le symposium Autohistorias emprunte son titre à la théoricienne et poétesse féministe chicana Gloria Anzaldúa, qui a inventé le terme pour définir un mode d’écriture permettant la réappropriation, fondé sur le déploiement des subtilités de la sphère intime comme outil narratif pour déstabiliser les frontières. Gloria Anzaldúa, Borderlands/La Frontera : The New Mestiza, Aunt Lute Books, 1987

Ce sym­po­sium s’ins­crit dans le cadre des 40 ans du Centre Pompidou et cons­ti­tue le temps fort de dis­cus­sions et de débats du pro­gramme Autohistorias déployé sur l’année 2017 sur nos deux lieux d’acti­vi­tés : le centre d’art et de recher­che Bétonsalon et la Villa Vassilieff.

Mondialités


Une conversation, avec Ernest BreleurJean-François Boclé et Seloua Luste Boulbina (philosophe)

Samedi 06 mai 2017 à 15h00
La Colonie 128 rue la fayette 75010 Paris

"Les mondialités postcoloniales sont l’autre face de la mondialisation. Elles sont portées par les Suds, dans leur diversité, leur variété, la différence de leurs histoires. Elles constituent une nébuleuse, un nuage diffus ou obscur de poussières d’empire. Loin d’être figées, les mondialités sont en mouvement. Elles sont mues par des philosophes, des écrivains, des artistes reliés par d’ironiques affinités mais aussi par un travail de décolonisation des pratiques et des pensées. 
Ne pas être esclave de l’esclavage : cette formule signifie que l’histoire n’est pas un destin. Son sens, dans la Caraïbe, est d’autant plus aigu que l’ensemble de l’archipel n’est pas délié de l’ancienne tutelle coloniale. Des pays indépendants tels que Cuba ou Haïti voisinent avec des « territoires non incorporés » comme Porto Rico ou… la Martinique.
L’esthétique et la politique s’entrecroisent et s’entremêlent. Comment, à partir de la Martinique, défaire les nœuds, dénouer les anciens fils pour tresser de nouvelles lignes d’horizon ? Comment créer de nouveaux liens, former des diversités solidaires ? Comment trouver un lieu-commun ?"

Caribbean Traffic: Bodies,

Cultures, Knowledges



Artist's Talk in the international symposium "Caribbean Traffic: Bodies, Cultures, Knowledges" (organized by Conrad James, University of Birmingham).

University of London, Institute of Modern Languages Research
Friday 31 March 2017


Jean-François Boclé's Talk: Traffic’s Poetic Politics.

This one-day symposium is aimed at exploring contemporary narrative engagement (literary, visual, legal, sociological) with various transnational conversations which have, at their core, the Caribbean as a site of various forms of trafficking. Drawing on cases which bring into focus a series of economic, political, sexual and textual negotiations between the Caribbean and different locations within the global north and south, the symposium seeks to interrogate the structural and ideological mechanisms which have enabled forms of trafficking in and through the region. Through invigorating debates on transnational sexuality, migration and diaspora, human rights and cultural geography, it will also consider ‘trafficking’ in terms of the global circulation of new intimate, social, cultural and political knowledges.

Toguo and Boclé will cross their path with us, the maany obstacles facing Africa and its Diaspora in the market for contemporary art. They will also draw a set of devices to implement so that "we imagine OURSELVES" in the words of Toguo.

Jean-François Boclé discovered the work of Barthélémy Toguo in 1997 - catalogue of one of the shows of Toguo at the Palais de Tokyo. It was a shock to him. Since 2007, the two artists meet regularly, in Paris, where they live, or in exhibitions  like the Thessaloniki Biennale (2007, Greece), the Bienal do Mercorsur (2011, Porto Alegre, Brazil), the Habana Bienal (2012, Cuba), or the Dak'Art Biennale (2016, Senegal).

3-8 th of May 2016, Senegal, Dakar

Talk : Jean-François Boclé and Seloua Luste-Boulbina, Bandung and after?, 7 th of May. 
How to mourn an independence? By allowing such a question, the artist of Martinique, a department in need of a country, except on the way of the world, a question whose specific point subsists against all odds. More generally, the artistic activism helps dispel illusions and to thwart the false chords by showing, raw and bare, contradictions and other blunders that make the coloniality of power.

L’objet de l’exposition : le regard ethnographique #2


ENSA - École Nationale Supérieure d'Art de Bourges (Fine arts school).
Organized by Giovanna Zapperi et Frédéric Herbin.

Artist talk (Artist statment and Skype conversation)
2nd of May 2016, 
Bourges, France

Cette journée d’études organisée par Giovanna Zapperi et Frédéric Herbin, s’inscrit dans le cadre du séminaire « L’objet de l’exposition », qui réunit les étudiants de l’option « Médiation culturelle et Pratiques de l’exposition » du master en histoire de l’art de l’Université de Tours et du master Art de l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Bourges. Elle bénéficie du soutien de l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure d’Art de Bourges et du laboratoire InTRu (EA 6301).
Cette journée d’études aborde la question d’une possible décolonisation de l’espace de l’exposition. L’histoire de l’exposition – comme celle de l’ethnographie, dont elle sert le discours – est en effet hantée par les questions de la « race », du genre et de l’ethnicité, dont les stratégies rhétoriques méritent encore d’être examinées dans ce cadre précis de la mise en vue.

Remplissez moi
Workshop & Artistic intervention

"Remplissez moi" , 2011-, work in progress, relational and participating intervention, MAC-Museo de Arte Contemporaneo, San Juan, Puerto Rico.
Artistic intervention during a workshop with Boclé and Art Student at MAC, in collaboration with USC-Universidad Sagrada Corazon,  during the exhibition of the video and sound installation "Tu me copieras" of Boclé at MAC (group show "Caribes Globales, La creacion caribena contemporanea").
>MAC Puerto Rico
>SEE Tu me copieras
The artist takes the place of the Master, the students, aged 18 to 25, occupy the place of children at school: "As you know, I'm from Martinique. My school books never mentionned the "Code Black" signed by King Louis XIV, but I had to know by heart the number of rooms that has the castle of Versailles, built at 7000 km of me, to the east of our current position. This is adult and out of any institution of knowledge transmission that I had access to this text. You had the weekend to read the 60 articles of the "Black Code". Take a sheet of paper and fill it with words, You have one hour!"
L'artiste occupe la place du Maître, les étudiants, agés de 18 à 25 ans, occupent la place d'enfants à l'école: "Comme vous le savez, je suis de la Martinique. Mes livres d'école n'ont jamais fait mention du "Code Noir" signé du Roi Louis XIV, mais je devais connaître par cœur le nombre de salles que compte le chateau de Versaille construit à 7000 km de moi, à l'Est de notre position actuelle. Ce n'est qu'adulte et hors de toute institution de transmission des savoirs que j'ai eu accès à ce texte. Vous avez eu le week end pour lire les 60 articles du "Code Noir". Prenez une feuille de papier et remplissez la de mots. Vous avez une heure ! "
