Remote residency with brain store project
The artistic residency of Anne Lise Le Gac was planned to be in October 2020 in Sofia. Due to the Covid-19 she could not travel to Sofia, which necessitated a very quick reorganization of the entire plan. After several online meetings with the Anne, we made the general decision to realize the residence as remote residency.

During the romote artistic residency Anne Lise Le Gac worked on the 4th featuring,   which deals with the question “Where is the Duende?”.

“I stay in a four-star hotel-spa in the Croatian outback among a gathering of people seeking true happiness. Within the group, each of us have a status: because I am a newbie, I automatically become DOG, and I have a number 23, because I am the 23rd DOG. We don’t know each other and share advices, beliefs and practices. We nevertheless believe that we live in an INFINITELY LIVING WORLD.Yes, that means life towards infinity.” – shares Anne Lise Le Gac about her performance project La Caresse du Coma. It develops into featurings, which, according to Anne Lise, “are not like process steps but more like chapters of a novel.” 

Anne Lise Le Gac lives in Marseille (France). She is a contemporary artist with a taste for cultural management. Since 2015, she has been co-organising the performance festival OKAY CONFIANCE, which takes place in different cities around France. She has created the solo piece La Caresse du Coma and the collaborative performance project, GRAND MAL, with Élie Ortis. In May 2019 her latest performance project DUCTUS MIDI, created together with the artist and musician Arthur Chambry, had its premiere during Kunstenfestivaldesarts in Brussels. 

The remote residency was hold within Without Distance Platform, part of Antistatic Festival.

Project description "Ductus Midi":

What’s this painting ? It’s not a painting, it is a map. And you will find your way inside. A memory palace takes place, and we often meet there. Among other things, we grow oblivion. This palace does not have any address, it is closer to campfire than pyramid. It can light up more or less everywhere. We made it a purée, a yoghurt-song, a fountain, a boogie, a false memory, a blackbird, a speaking map. You can touch the surface where our rides intertwine. In our hands, the matter is soft. On a terrain with hazily edges, we begin a trip without resolution.
