NABROAD presents the publication The Lecture: Improvised Notes, by Marthe Ramm Fortun in the event of her solo exhibition The Lecture at Galerie Jan Dhaese in Ghent, Belgium 16th September through to 27th October 2012.
Within the show, old and tested languages of revolt are disputed, but not rejected. Fortun actively refers to the relationships between performer and audience, art object and society, revealing flaws and vulnerabilities rather than aiming sublimation.
The Lecture: Improvised Notes is an online publication featuring texts by invited artists and writers including David Rimanelli, Geir Haraldseth and Lotte Konow Lund. The contributors were asked to respond spontaneously, in less than 200 words, to a set of images featuring film stills and unfinished works for the exhibition. With a combination of trust and recklessness similar to the dynamics of her live performances, Fortun relied on others to complete this unguided body of work.
The Lecture: Improvised Notes acts as an extension to the displayed works within the exhibition. The project continues beyond the completion of the show through an interactive webpage, evolving as a form of lyric retelling that engages new micro-perspectives.
