Previously in the City: TELEPRESENCE “LAST BREATH MEETS DANCING TRASH BAG”, David Renault, Mathieu Tremblin, 27 September 2012, galerie Octave Cowbell / Auditorium Wendel Centre Pompidou-Metz, Metz (FR) as part of “Une décennie” event organised by galerie Octave Cowbell
TELEPRESENCE is a principle of video-performance-conference. Through a FaceTime/Skype connection, viewers inside a room attend to an artistic context outside. As a reference to the specificity of Octave Cowbell gallery where visitors are entering through the window, David Renault and Mathieu Tremblin offer a unique window on their practice of the city – everyday actions with various forms, from derisory to monumental, from furtive to spectacular – mixing two personal gestures in a kind of surrealistic street corner happening.

My friend and fellow artist Raphy Griswold and I have had an ongoing mail art / cassette exchange going for the past few years. This month I put together my latest contribution, and decided to digitize it before mailing the original copy. I treated my broke self to a $20 cassette deck at the local thrift spot for my birthday, and this came together pretty quickly after that.
