A FAKE NOVEL ABOUT THE LIFE OF ARTHUR RIMBAUD
The title is that of a long poem by Jack Spicer,
composed of short chapters, almost all of
which are rendered here. Florence Pazzottu
invites it in to the South Alpine village of La
Pomme Chinoise (The Chinese Apple) (FID 2019),
scattering it to the wind : written on black
cardboard or loose sheets, interrupted by
Australian admirer’s rock music, recited in turn
by the inhabitants of the village who, in perfect
harmony with the Californian’s poetry, add their
grain of salt, fine or coarse. If, for Spicer, the
poet is a radio, a receptacle and transmitter
of voices and things that come to him from
the Outside, then Florence Pazzottu’s gesture
is one of very high fidelity: casting the poem
into the world, she returns it to the Outside
and transforms cinema into the most lively and
flexible operator of translation. (Cyril Neyrat)
