Artist in resident Alle Dicu spent three weeks with us here in London embarking on a collaborative experimental writing project with Croatian philosophy researcher Tajana Kosor. With an interest in the relationship between the notion of the dancefloor and waitingrooms Alle and Tajana's research started off from a work of Maurice Blanchot called "Waiting, oblivion" (1962). Alle and Tajana are currently back in Bucharest and Zagreb and will continue to edit their texts for this to be published into a publication later in 2020. Of course we will anounce when this happens!!!
Alle Dicu is a Romanian artist working predominantly across moving image, performance and text. Alle lives and works between Bucharest and Paris.
Tajana Kosor is a Croatian philosophy researcher and writer currently completing her Masters in philosophy at the university of Zagreb.
For Alle's presentation at Hoxton 253, she shared some of the texts written with Tajana Kosor as well as presented her video work "Mixage".
MIXAGE, 18 minutes, french with english subtitles François Guérif used to describe the black novel as the investigation of the sordid and dysfunctional, masked by the renovated facade of the house that we introduce to children as the world of people. Alle Dicu also investigates obscurity, revealing an aura of its own, possibly useful to those who know how to let themselves be carried in its direction. “Mixage” is a manifesto for a solitary, stormy and stronger eye.
