“Life without love, is no life at all”
Leonardo da Vinci

 

"Media exist because there is alterity (...)"
Dieter Mersch
An introduction to media theories

 

"We are not brave enough to inhabit the norm, neither to be normative, nor to hold the norm. But let's rather be too fragile, sensitive.
Revolution is implemented throughout vulnerabilty."
Paul B. Preciado

 

pollinACTIONS

 

The Present artistic impetus would be the movement of lives not letting themselves plan, as one does not plan the way a plant grows, or the way a cloud appears. Life responds to temporal fluctuations having low acceptance towards capitalist production systems massively destroying our environment.
We could imagine the utter fragility to go through out the world without losing one's sensitivity, one's alterity, resisting with all possible means to the planet planning, to our lives organization, to the reduction of sensitiveness and life, to management and accounts lines.
We could discover an innate perception of the matter and find out how to handle it, weave it, transform it, just as animals, plants and minerals do.

This brings us to define art as expanded to a sensitive awareness of life on earth, and all its constantly transformable, elusive living matters, driving us to focus, even to combine and transmute arts within scientific processes inviting to imagine, to create new possible communities on a damaged planet.

This damaged planet is obviously ours, suffering «ecological, economical, relational and political» devastations.
Relying on works of anthropologist, Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing (humusities, aero-pollinations, resiliences), and philosophers of science, Bruno Latour (anthropocene studies), Bernard Stiegler (digital studies, neguanthropocène), and on the concept of « Mediality » by german media theoretician Dieter Mersh, pollinACTIONS will be a hybrid space, a base for a collective creation, speculative and political fictions, scientific or mytho-poetic storytelling, to cross borders below binary divisions between human and non-human, individual and society.

In order to embody and to practice these new orientations, we offer a few entities to connect with one another and build a collective and evolutive scenario. They will take action in 4 different shared and opened pollinACTIONS labs, proposing a range of experimental arts practices linked with technologies, sciences, with actions and transmission modes, ways of proceedings, and above all to think along with the living, plants, bees and our local, close surroundings.
