OUTHERE (FOR LEE LOZANO)
Maïder Fortuné, Annie Mac Donell
After Communicating Vessels (FID 2020) the artist-filmmaker duo Annie McDonell
and Maïder Fortuné are back. Once again, the question is that of art, its teaching,
the painful articulation between thought, practice and the living shell that
embraces and brings it to life. An affair as ancient as the first Romantic period,
its complexity fully intact, the challenge here is multiplied by the study of an
extremely singular and insufficiently known figure of 20th century history: Lee
Lozano. Painter, particularly radical conceptual artist and then recluse, for many
years this woman filled similar small coloured spiral notebooks with her thoughts
and plans for her work. Herein we read of a prime motive among others, that of
a well-known obsession: to bring artistic production and existence to coincide,
without any compromise, free of residue. These writings, the traces of class
photographed and recorded in July 1971 and her horoscope form the rich matter of
this short, dense film. “Information is content. Content is fiction. Content is messy.
Like the universe, it is unfinished, quickly becoming obsolete once multiplied by
time. Form can be repeated – content cannot”. With Lozano’s clear yet cryptic
words as a guide, this film ventures to weave “ici au-dehors” (outhere) form and
content, iteration and uniqueness, zoology and archaeology, archives and flashes
from the present. (Jean-Pierre Rehm)
