“Sometimes, however, I am called to action by the siren song of that narrative faction“ emprunte son titre à un poème d’Yvonne Rainer (1). Loin d’en constituer une simple référence, cette citation se veut argumentée par un intérêt particulier pour un vocabulaire et une réflexion d’ordre chorégraphique et cinématographique développée par l’auteure américaine.

“Sometimes, however, I am called to action by the siren song of that narrative faction“ réunit des oeuvres de Virginia Lee Montgomery, Joanna Piotrowska, Hanna Schwarz, Adrien Vescovi, Zoe Williams exposant et développant une sémiotique et une analyse particulière des images, gestes et signes de la main dans leurs dimensions tant érotiques que politiques.
