lydia lunch’s putan club


Lecture, musique, art + action (USA-France-Italie)


Anti-commercial, anti-rock’n’roll, suprêmement mal élevé et divinement raffiné, le Lydia Lunch’s Putan Club est le nouveau projet d’une des artistes majeure du XXIe siècle, poétesse fulminée, violente écrivaine adulée par la nouvelle vague des dissacratori-profanateurs américains, chanteuse hors pair à la carrière sulfureusement rougeoyante, outre qu’impériale fouteuse-de-merde : Lydia Lunch.


Propulsé par le Putan Club, une cellule de résistance artistique subtilement iconoclaste, combo armé d’une implacable inter-action entre peinture, arts graphiques et commentaires musicaux résolument outrecuidants, le Lydia Lunch’s Putan Club fut tout d’abord une création voulue et mise en place par le Théâtre Garonne, scène européenne de Toulouse, en mars 2012, puis un vrai groupe d’intervention artistique.


Car ceci n’est pas un spectacle, ni une lecture, ni un concert : c’est un viol, un gang bang, une immersion totale –cœur, yeux, oreilles– dans la malséance, et son incroyable beauté. La poésie appliquée à la vie immédiate, sans fleurs ni effets de style, à sa violence, ses excès, ses religions, ses politiques, du sexe aux drogues et ce jusqu’à la mort. Implacablement, impitoyablement et souverainement. Une sincère expérience d’amour extrêmement féroce et sauvage.

LYDIA LUNCH


Lydia Lunch est une poétesse, écrivain, actrice et chanteuse américaine (USA). Victime d’inceste, elle quitte à seize ans le foyer familial pour connaître la rue et les bas-fonds de New York : alcool, drogue et prostitution. On la remarque pour la première fois au sein du groupe Teenage Jesus and the Jerks sur l’album anthologique de Brian Eno paru en 1977 : No New York considéré comme un pilier fondateur du mouvement no wave. Égérie du mouvement underground et no-wave new-yorkais, Lydia Lunch a participé à une cinquantaine de films, a réalisé une centaine d’albums (entre autres avec Sonic Youth, Nick Cave, Exene Cervenka, Rowland S. Howard, Einstürzende Neubauten, Alan Vega, J. G. Thirlwell, Marc Almond, Michael Gira, Oxbow, Henry Rollins…) et publié huit recueils et livres dont deux sont traduits en français (Paradoxia, journal d'une prédatrice, et Déséquilibres synthétiques, tous deux aux Éditions Au Diable Vauvert). Son oeuvre est résolument provocatrice et conflictuelle.


Il y a t’il encore quelqu'un dans cette ville qui ne serait pas au fait que nous vivons dans le foutu centre de l’Enfer ? Eh bien, il est peut-être temps d’écouter Lydia Lunch et la laisser dévaster votre frileuse et doucereuse perception de la réalité.  Ron Athery, LA Weekly

                   

Avec une voix magique, grossière, brute, sexy, sarcastique et tellement newyorkaise, l’artiste Lydia Lunch délivre de brûlantes performances de récitations qui emmène l'auditeur dans un monde de désespoir, de brutalité, de décrépitude de la morale urbaine et de l’éthique intime. Ses histoires sont hypnotiques et toxiques, ses personnages explosent avec une sorte d'énergie diabolique qui les rend effrayants même quand ils sont pathétiques. Bridget Haire


Si vous voulez entendre l'urgence et la terreur ... tout ce que revendiquent des groupes ne possédant pas un dixième de la puissance stupéfiante et géniale de cette dame. Sincèrement, vous avez besoin d’elle. Everett True, Melody Maker


Lydia Lunch est l’un des rares génies spontanés de la musique contemporaine. New York Rocker


... Lydia Lunch : une artiste influente, révolutionnaire, séminale. Peter Robinson, Timeout (UK)


... La performance m'a impressionné, son exécution fut formidable. Qu’arriverait-il si vous cloniez Sarah Bernhardt avec Céline ? Lydia Lunch crache, aigrie, cordiale, méchante et authentique. Elle est un noyau dur de la poétique réaliste, une devineresse pragmatique. Ce que Lunch observe dans le monde malade autour d'elle est vite traduit en un hurlement lyrique. Il y a de la colère dans son comportement, et elle la projette, l’éructe majestueusement... Son langage et son équilibre ont envoyé des étincelles à travers les gradins, dans les oreilles de petits dirigeants d'entreprise et de professeurs universitaires qui ont incliné involontairement la tête, en accord. Robert C. Morgan, High Performance

PUTAN CLUB


Le Putan Club est une cellule de résistance, caractérisée par un mode d'agir très proche des premiers complots des partisans européens durant la dernière guerre mondiale (actions de force en divers lieux) et résistants irakiens, afghans ou tchéchènes.


La résistance est organisée par les moyens archaïques et immédiats de notre siècle : sanguine ou vidéo, voix et rumeurs électriques, crayons, marqueurs, action-drawing ou graphisme ultra-craché, chars d'assaut et paroles comptées, comme dire de la peinture rupestre au conceptualisme le plus hardi, de l'avant-rock à la musique classique contemporaine à la techno/house la plus brutale, du baiser sur la bouche au coup de pied au cul...


C'est cette synergie qui donne sa force à la résistance : musique + arts plastiques + textes. Aussi les lieux de l'action sont pluriels : de la galerie d'art new-yorkaise au squat bosniaque, du musée allemand au club japonais, du théâtre français au bar andalou.


Le Putan Club revendique une action debordienne/situationniste d'agit-prop.


Membres du Club:


François R. Cambuzat (F) : musique, guitares, voix, DJing

Gianna Greco (I) : basse, voix, effets


FRANÇOIS R. CAMBUZAT


a fondé The Kim Squad , il Gran Teatro Amaro, la République du Sauvage et  L' Enfance Rouge. Plus de 3700 concerts tout autour du monde.

Tout d’abord bassiste puis saxophoniste (résident à Bedford Stuyvesant, à dix-sept ans il joua avec Dizzy Gillespie au Blue Note de New York), sa vie fut sauvée de la misère américaine par le rock’n’roll en interviewant Iggy Pop et devenant ainsi journaliste indépendant pour divers médias.


De court retour en France, il n’eut de cesse de la fuir. François R. déménage à Londres, puis à Rome où il crée le groupe The Kim Squad qui signe pour la Virgin Italy et vend plus de 100.000 copies, réalisant d’interminables tournées internationales.


Trois jours après la chute du mur de Berlin, il y déménage et fonde Il Gran Teatro Amaro, un projet acoustique déclinant musique classique contemporaine et sauvagerie anarco-punk, en travaillant avec Luciano Berio et Mauricio Kagel (entre autres) avec des décors de Emanuele Luzzatti (scénographe original d’Igor Stravinsky pour L’Histoire du Soldat, puis du Teatro della Tosse, de Gênes, Italie). Il Gran Teatro Amaro signa trois albums sur le prestigieux label d’avant-garde RecRec et fut entre autres invité au festival Documenta de Kassel (D).


Après l’énorme succès de ce projet dans l’espace germanophone (avec des pointes de deux cents représentations par an), fatigué de prêcher aux convertis, François R. Cambuzat crée L’Enfance Rouge avec l’idée de passer dans le rock certaines pensées révolutionnaires de la musique contemporaine –atonalité, déconstruction, temps impairs– tout en gardant une pulse primaire.


François R. Cambuzat est le directeur artistique du Festival Trasporti Marittimi.


GIANNA GRECO


En provenance du Salento, sud de l’Italie, à vingt-six ans Gianna Greco a déjà créé seize groupes-projets, réalisé onze albums et tourne dans le monde entier avec certains groupes majeurs de la nouvelle scène italienne (Shotgun Babies , Jehanne G. et Kama).

Vincent Fortemps


Vincent Fortemps dessine sur une feuille plastique transparente (rhodoïd), surface qui se laisse attaquer, graver, recouvrir d’encre, nettoyer, et encore recouvrir d’encre. Une caméra placée sous sa table de travail en verre envoie les images sur un écran. C’est  le principe du cinéma, de l’animation, mais sanspellicule. S’appuyant sur cette remarquable et très physique technique, Vincent Fortemps déchaîne toute la colère et toute la puissance dramatique de la couleur noire. La prodigalité de ces anthracites,de ces dépôts de matière sont contrebalancés par les réserves, les repentirs qu’il orchestre avec des outils allant de la main nue à la lame de rasoir.  Le noir est plein de nuances allant d’un extrêmement profond à un gris diaphane qui flotte dans l’air.Son travail, plein d’odeurs et de musicalité, se concentre sur la solitude de l’individu face à l’immensité et la sauvagerie du monde. En 2002, il reçoit la bourse de la Fondation Spes . Depuis lors, diverses performances ont eu lieu au Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris (2005), à la Fondation Cartier, Paris (2009), au Grand Palais, Paris ainsi que dans divers lieux internationaux.

lydia lunch’s putan club


Anti-commercial, anti-rock’n’roll, supremely impolite and divinely refined, the Lydia Lunch’s Putan Club is the newest project of one of greatest artists of the XXIth century, a fulminated poet, a violent writer adulated by the new wave of the American dissacratori-profaners, an outstanding singer of an ardent career, besides that an imperial pain in the neck: Lydia Lunch.


Propelled by the Putan Club, a unit of artistic resistance subtly iconoclastic, a combo armed with a merciless interaction between paintings, graphic arts and determinedly overconfident musical comments, the Lydia Lunch’s Putan Club is a creation wished and organized by the Theatre Garonne, European Stages Network of Toulouse, in March, 2012.


This is not entertainment, either a reading, or a concert : it is a rape, a gang bang, a total dumping -heart, eyes, ears- in the indecency and its incredible beauty. It is the poetry applied to the immediate life, without flowers nor stylistic effects, conjugating its violence, its excesses, its religions, its politics, from sex to drugs and up to the death. Inexorably, mercilessly and supremely. A sincere experience of extremely savage and wild love.

LYDIA LUNCH


Lydia Lunch (Rochester, New York, USA) is an American poet, writer, actress and singer. The provocative Lydia Lunch was a pivotal figure in New York’s ‘no wave’ scene of the late 70s and has worked with an array of talent since then. The Boston Phoenix named Lunch "one of the 10 most influential performers of the 1990s." Her words revealed her increasing fascination with the baser instincts of human nature.


Lydia Lunch participated in about fifty movies, realized hundred of albums (among others with Sonic Youth, Nick Cave, Exene Cervenka, Rowland S . Howard, Einstürzende Neubauten, Alan Vega, J.G. Thirlwell, Marc Almond, Michael Gira, Oxbow, Henry Rollins) and published eight books translated in several languages.


Her work typically features provocative and confrontational delivery. The politics of outrage remain her gospel.



Is there anybody left in this town who's oblivious to the fact that we live in the direct fucking center of Hell? Well, it may be time to come forward and let Lydia Lunch devastate your candy-coated perception of reality.   Ron Athery, LA Weekly


With a magical voice that is rough, sexy, sarcastic and so very New York, performance artist Lydia Lunch delivers scalding spoken word performances that take the listener into a world of desperation, brutality and inner urban moral and ethical decay. Her stories are mesmeric and poisonous, her characters infused with a kind of diabolical energy that makes them frightening even when they are pathetic.   Bridget Haire


...it certainly vindicates Lunch's status as a influential, groundbreaking, seminal artist. Peter Robinson, Time Out (UK)

PUTAN CLUB


The Putan Club is a resistance unit, distinguished by a way of action near to the very first European partisans conspiracies during the last world-war (strength actions in diverse places) and resistants in Iraq, Afghanistan or Chechnya.


The resistance is organized with the archaic and immediate ways of our century : voices & electrical rumors, red chalk & video, pencils, action-drawing and ultra-spitted graphic, military tank & counted words, as to say from the fresco painting to the most daring conceptualism, from avant-rock to modern contemporary music to the most brutal techno/house, from the mouth kiss to the kick in the ass, and so on...


This is this synergy which give strength & power to the resistance: music + video + writing. So the places of action are plural: from the Paris art-gallery to the Bosnian squat, from the German museum to a Japanese club, from a Belgian theatre to the most mythological Slovenian bars.


The Putan Club is claiming a bakuninian action of agit-prop.


Club’s Members :


François R. Cambuzat (F): music, guitars, vox, computer

Gianna Greco (I): bass, vox, effects



FRANÇOIS R. CAMBUZAT


founded The Kim Squad & Dinah Shore Headbangers, il Gran    Teatro Amaro, la République du Sauvage & L' Enfance Rouge and performed over 3700 concerts all over the planet.    

First of all bass player then saxophonist (resident in Bedford Stuyvesant, at seventeen he played with Dizzy Gillespie at the New York ‘s Blue Note), his life was then saved from the American poverty by the rock 'n' roll by interviewing Iggy Pop and so becoming independent journalist for diverse media.


Of short return in France, he kept on avoiding it. François R. moved to London, then in Rome where he created the band The Kim Squad who signed for Virgin Italy and sold more than 100.000 copies, realizing endless international tours.


Three days after the fall of the Berlin Wall, he moved there and founded Il Gran Teatro Amaro, a totally acoustic project declining contemporary classical music and anarco-punk savagery, by working with Luciano Berio and Mauricio Kagel (among others) with Emanuele

Luzzatti's scenographies (original scenographer of Igor Stravinsky’s L’Histoire du Soldat). Il Gran Teatro Amaro published three albums on the prestigious cutting edge label RecRec and was among others invited to the Documenta exhibition of modern and contemporary art which takes place every five years in Kassel ( D ). After the enormous success of this project in the German-speaking space (with points of two hundred representations a year), tired to preach to the converts, François R. Cambuzat creates L’Enfance Rouge (the red childhood) with the idea to cross the rock music with certain revolutionary thoughts of the contemporary classical music (atonality, demolition, polyrythmie).


François R. Cambuzat is the art director of the Festival Trasporti Marittimi.



GIANNA GRECO


From Salento, South of Italy, in twenty six years Gianna Greco founded already sixteen bands/projects,realized eleven albums and is travelling all over the world with two major bands of the new Italian scene (Shotgun Babies Jehanne G., Kama and Muffx).











Press cuts Lydia Lunch :


"Is there anybody left in this town who's oblivious to the fact that we live in the direct fucking center of Hell? Well, it may be time to come forward and let Lydia Lunch devastate your candy-coated perception of reality."  Ron Athery, LA WEEKLY


"With a magical voice that is rough, sexy, sarcastic and so very New York, performance artist Lydia Lunch delivers scalding spoken word performances that take the listener into a world of desperation, brutality and inner urban moral and ethical decay. Her stories are mesmeric and poisonous, her characters infused with a kind of diabolical energy that makes them frightening even when they are pathetic."  Bridget Haire


"If you want to hear urgency and terror . . . everything claimed for bands who don't come close to touching one tenth of this lady's awesome power. Damn, do you need this album." Everett True, MELODY MAKER (UK)


Lydia Lunch is one of the few spontaneous geniuses in contemporary music.  New York Rocker


“One of the greatest New York musicians of all time.” Time Out New York, 2007


"A musician, spoken word performer, author and actor, she shines a light into the dark corners of human experience."  Kathy McCabe, THE DAILY TELEGRAPH MIRROR


"Lydia Lunch is one of your dumb-ass country's greatest fucking commentators period. Lydia, I totally salute you!" Everett True,THE STRANGER


"Still, if you think Lunch is just your garden variety nihilist, you're wrong. It's a mark of cowardice, in fact, to mistake her disillusion for defeat. The passion of her fury is the best testimony to her lack of cynicism." Jim Farber, NY DAILY NEWS


"...it certainly vindicates Lunch's status as a influential, groundbreaking, seminal artist." Peter Robinson,TIME OUT (UK)


"... the performance impressed me as brilliant. What would happen if you took a clone of Sarah Bernhardt and matched it with Celine? Lunch spits out a song, embittered, heartfelt, nasty and uncontrived. She's a hard- core poetic realist, a pragmatic soothsayer. What Lunch observes in the sick world around her is swiftly translated into a lyrical ululation. There is anger in her demeanor, and she projects it majestically. . . Her language and poise sent sparks across the aisles into the ears of small town corporate executives and college professors who nodded in involuntary agreement. " Robert C. Morgan, HIGH PERFORMANCE


"Before Marilyn Manson, before Courtney Love and before all the MTV-light-weights made rage and controversy mere cheap commodities, there was punk poet queen of extremities Lydia Lunch . . . and her volatile narratives on life, death and all the bits in between.Unmissable." •Angela Lewis,THE INDEPENDENT (UK)


"On Queen of Siam, Lydia Lunch . . . surprises her fans and a legion of japing nonbelievers by delivering a record that covers all the bases so well that it's beyond words like calculated. . . Lunch stays busy by proving she can "sing" (for those who care about such irrelevancies) and conjuring up memories of various grotesques like Peggy Lee, Nancy Sinatra, Petula Clark and Marlene Dietrich (though camp she ain't). Lunch's lyrics, while sometimes suffused with Catholic guilt, recognize the absurdity of that guilt's flagellant trappings. Lydia Lunch isn't sleazy, and sports a sense of humor about her persona and her music that collects increments of charm through successive cuts.Queen of Siam is a class act all the way." Lester Bangs, ROLLING STONE (USA)


"While Madonna plays truth or dare, Lydia Lunch plays psychological Russian roulette." -- Hobey Echlin


«Innovative, inspirational and essential listening."  Billy Chainsaw, KERRANG! (USA)

Vincent Fortemps


Vincent Fortemps draws on a transparent plastic rhodoïd sheet, surfaces who allows him to attack,affect, engrave or burn. A video-camera placed under its glass-desk sends the images on a screen. It is the principle of the cinema, the animation, but without film. Leaning on this remarkable and very physical technique, Fortemps unchains all the anger and all the dramatic power of the black color. The prodigality of these anthracites, these deposits of material is counterbalanced by the reserves, the repentirs which he orchestrates with tools going of the naked hand to the razor blade. The black is full of nuances going of an extremely deep to a translucent grey which floats in the air.


His work, full of smells and musicality, concentrates on the solitude of the individual in front of the unlimitedness and the savagery of the world.


Among others Vincent Fortemps receives the First Prize of the Spes Foundation. Diverse exhibitions and/or performances took place at the Beaubourg/Georges Pompidou Center, at the Fondation Cartier, in the Grand Palais (Paris) as well as in diverses places all over the world.

lydia lunch’s putan club



Anti-commerciale, anti-rock'n'roll, estremamente scorretto e divinamente raffinato, il Lydia Lunch's Putan Club è il nuovo progetto di una tra i maggiori artisti del XXI secolo, poetessa fulminata, scrittrice violenta e adulata dalla nuova ondata di dissacratori-profanatori americani, cantante con una straordinaria ed infuocata carriera, oltre che semina-grane : Lydia Lunch.


Nato dal Putan Club, una cellula di resistenza artistica finemente dissacratrice, un combo armato da un'implacabile interazione tra pittura, arti grafiche e commenti musicali che si fanno strada con prepotenza, il Lydia Lunch's Putan Club è una creazione voluta dal Théâtre Garonne Scène Européenne di Tolosa (F) nel marzo 2012.


Questo non è uno spettacolo, né una lettura, né un concerto: è uno stupro, una gang bang, un'immersione totale -cuore, occhi, orecchie- nell'indecenza e nella sua incredibile bellezza. La poesia applicata alla vita immediata, senza fiori né effetti stilistici, alla sua violenza, i suoi eccessi, le sue religioni, le sue politiche, dal sesso alla droga, fino alla morte. Inesorabilmente, spietatamente e supremamente. Una sincera esperienza d'amore estremamente feroce e selvaggia.

LYDIA LUNCH


Lydia Lunch (Rochester, New York, Stati Uniti) è una poetessa, scrittrice e cantante. Vittima di incesto, scappa da casa a sedici anni per conoscere la strada e i bassifondi di New York: alcool, droga e prostituzione. La si nota per la prima volta all'interno del gruppo Teenage Jesus and the Jerks sulla compilation prodotta da Brian Eno nel 1977 "No New York", considerata come il punto di partenza del movimento no wave newyorkese. Lydia Lunch ha partecipato a una cinquantina di film, ha realizzato un centinaio di album (collaborando con Sonic Youth, Nick Cave, Exene Cervenka, Rowland S. Howard, Einstürzende Neubauten, Alan Vega, J. G. Thirlwell, Marc Almond, Michael Gira, Oxbow, Henry Rollins…) e pubblicato otto raccolte e libri. I suoi lavori sono tutti decisamente provocatori e conflittuali.


Esiste ancora qualcuno in questa città che non si è ancora accorto del fatto che viviamo nel fottuto centro dell'Inferno? Bene, è probabilmente giunto il momento di ascoltare Lydia Lunch e di lasciarle devastare la vostra flebile e dolce percezione della realtà.

Ron Athery, LA Weekly

                   

Con una voce magica, ruvida, brutale, sexy, sarcastica e tanto newyorkese, l'artista Lydia Lunch garantisce calde performance di recitazione che proiettano lo spettatore in un mondo di disperazione, di brutalità, di degrado della morale urbana e dell'etica più intima e personale. Le sue storie sono ipnotiche e tossiche, i suoi personaggi esplodono con un'energia diabolica che li rende tanto spaventosi quanto patetici.

PUTAN CLUB


Il Putan Club è una cellula di resistenza, caratterizzata da un modo di agire molto simile ai primi complotti dei partigiani europei durante l'ultima guerra mondiale (azioni di forza in posti diversi) e dei partigiani iracheni, afghani e ceceni.


La resistenza è organizzata attraverso i mezzi arcaici e immediati del nostro secolo: sangue e video, voce e rumori elettrici, matite, pennelli, action-drawing e dinamismo grafico, carri armati d'assalto e parole contate, come dire dalla pittura rupestre al concettualismo più ardito, dall'avant-rock alla musica classica contemporanea o alla techno/house più violenta, dal bacio in bocca al calcio in culo...


E' questa sinergia che dà forza alla resistenza: musica + arti visive + testi. Anche i luoghi d'azione sono molteplici e diversi: dalla galleria d'arte newyorkese allo squat bosniaco, dal museo tedesco al club giapponese, dal teatro francese al bar andaluso.


Il Putan Club porta avanti un'azione di propaganda politica derbordiana/situazionista.


Membri del Club:

François R. Cambuzat (F): musica, chitarra, voce, DJing

Gianna Greco (I): basso, voce, effetti



FRANÇOIS R. CAMBUZAT


François R. Cambuzat ha fondato The Kim Squad, Il Gran Teatro Amaro, la République du Sauvage e L' Enfance Rouge. Ad oggi ha all'attivo più di 3700 concerti in tutto il mondo.

Prima bassista, poi sassofonista (nel suo periodo a Bedford Stuyvesant, a diciassette anni ha suonato con Dizzy Gillespie al Blue Note di New York), è uscito fuori dalla miseria statunitensa grazie al rock'n'roll intervistando Iggy Pop e diventando così giornalista indipendente per diverse testate.

Dopo un breve periodo in Francia, fa di tutto per scapparne. Prima Londra, poi Roma dove dà vita al gruppo The Kim Squad con cui firma un contratto con la Virgin, vendendo più di 100.000 copie e realizzando interminabili tournée internazionali.

Tre giorni dopo la caduta del muro di Berlino, vi si trasferisce e fonda Il Gran Teatro Amaro, un progetto acustico che coniuga la musica classica contemporanea con la violenza anarco-punk, collaborando (tra gli altri) con Luciano Berio e Mauricio Kagel, con Emanuele Luzzati (scenografo di Igor Stravinsky per La Storia del Soldato e per il Teatro della Tosse di Genova). Il Gran Teatro Amaro realizza tre album con la prestigiosa label d'avanguardia RecRec e si esibisce, inoltre, in una tra le più importanti manifestazioni europee di arte contemporanea, il festival Documenta di Kassel, in Germania.

Dopo l'enorme successo di questo progetto in territorio tedesco, François R. Cambuzat crea L'Enfance Rouge con l'idea di mescolare nel rock alcuni pensieri rivoluzionari della musica contemporanea -atonalità, decostruzione, tempi dispari- mantenendo un impulso primario.

François R. Cambuzat è il direttore artistico del Festival Trasporti Marittimi.



GIANNA GRECO


Dal Salento, sud dell'Italia, a ventisei anni Gianna Greco ha già creato sedici progetti, realizzato undici album e attualmente gira il mondo con vari grandi gruppi della nuova scena italiana (Shotgun Babies , Jehanne G. e Muffx).

Vincent Fortemps

Vincent Fortemps disegna su un foglio plastico trasparente (rhodoïd), superficie che si lascia attaccare, incidere, ricoprire di inchiostro, ripulire e nuovamente ricoprire di inchiostro. Una videocamera, posizionata sotto il suo tavolo da lavoro caratterizzato da un piano in vetro, proietta le immagini su uno schermo. E' esattamente il principio del cinema, dell'animazione, ma senza pellicola. Vincent Fortemps esegue e crea i suoi lavori dal 2002. Basandosi su questa tecnica molto fisica, Vincent Fortemps scatena tutta la rabbia e la potenza drammatica proprie del colore nero. La prodigalità di queste antraciti, di questi depositi di materia, è controbilanciata da riserve e pentimenti che lui orchestra con strumenti che vanno dalla mano nuda alla lama del rasoio. Il nero è pieno di sfumature che vanno dalla tonalità più cupa e profonda al grigio diafano che fluttua nell'aria. Il suo lavoro, pieno di percezioni e di musicalità, si concentra sulla solitudine dell'individuo davanti  all'immensità e alla ferocia del mondo. Nel 2002 riceve la borsa di studio dalla Fondation Spes. Da allora, diverse performance hanno avuto luogo: al Centro George Pompidou, Parigi (2005), presso la Fondation Cartier, Parigi (2009), al Grand Palais, Parigi e in altri siti internazionali.
