Working as a duo since 2007, Pauline Boudry and Renate Lorenz propose films and performances that revisits filmic and audio material from the past, excavating unrepresented or illegible moments of queer history. These works present a corpus capable not only of traveling across epochs, but also of imagining links between those epochs, so foreshadowing the possibility of a queer future.
I WANT, 2016 and SILENT, 2016
(co-produced by Théâtre de l’Usine TU)
Parallel to their installation, Boudry and Lorenz will present the performance I Want at the Théâtre de l’Usine TU. Taking their new film Silent (presented in the exhibition) as a starting point, this performance positions itself somewhere between a conference and an installation, featuring several previous film works of the duo. The performance unfolds in a post-identitary time and space, while juggling with the violent burden of not only one but multiple identities from different sites and epochs.
