the Program IN THE SUND WORK by Bartolomé Ferrando in frame of the School of Performance 2018.

1 − First of all, I show you a system that I created, based on the history of phonetic poetry, for the decomposition of language.

2 − Through the use of newspapers, we create a new language and work both individually and collectively

3 − We work some historical pieces of phonetic poetry

4 − We do practices of semantic and asemantic oral simultaneism

5 − We work on the relationship between writing, gesture and sound

6 − We work on the relationship between performance and voice. Various practices.

“I always take the poetic image as a starting point in my work in the realm of visual poetry, object poetry, object book, sound poetry, installation and performance. The sphere of poetry helps me to build, to construct pieces and structures which I can use to approach and head into the areas of music, plastic art and action.

The result of all this is an oeuvre that could be categorised and set in the field of intermediate art, a practice in which the most prominent feature is that a work can be interpreted from the angle of at least two different artistic domains, since it straddles both areas.

I would finally like to add the fact that humour can be found in many of my objects and performances, trying to make its presence felt from the interiority of the pieces.” Bartolomé Ferrando
