Sylvanie Tendron: Everyday Obstacles

Vithèque - Online programming

April 7 - July 7, 2019

Free



Our Sylvanie Tendron: Everyday Obstacles program, available for 3 months on Vithèque, explores the tragicomic work of Deaf feminist artist Sylvanie Tendron.

Curator: Karine Boulanger / Vidéographe

 

In the spring of 2018, French videomaker Sylvanie Tendron was the first artist to undertake Vidéographe’s research residency for Deaf artists, curators and researchers. Since 2004, Tendron has explored behaviors associated with language and communication. Drawing on her own daily experiences, she exposes, with humor and derision, the misunderstandings, obstacles and absurd situations that can arise through encounters of difference.  In her performance videos, she tries to overcome almost farcical difficulties that lead to isolation or confinement, in so doing illustrating numerous examples of situations in which we try to connect with others by adapting to their language. Read the entire essay [+]
