Apr 27, 2019 5:00pm - 7:00pm talk/event
Mimosa House presents "Multivocal Flux" with RERQ and Verity Spott - the second session of our Bilingual French-English Reading Salon organised by Theodora Domenech and Sabrina soyer.
 
RERQ is a Paris-based network of dyke and nonbinary authors whose texts are queer, raw, tender, and explicit. Drawing from an aesthetic of flux that samples pornographic codes, experimental literary protocols, and theatrical presentation, RERQ writes, reads, and performs what is too rarely represented. RERQ explodes sad genres and tired syntax, refuses the typography of recognizable bodies, and intervenes in official literatures. RERQ is a nonstop neon trip that blurs individual experience and invokes a collective voice from which to recount collisions within gender and sexuality.
 
Verity Spott is a Brighton-based poet whose texts are intensive immersions into characters and landscapes that refuse to conform identity binaries and its authoritarian discourses. Its poetry is prophetic, muscular and goes everywhere the body has been shut up. Among other books, Verity Spott is the author of Transmanifestos and Click Away Close Door Say, and is part of a free jazz music band called Threads.

Pour la deuxième session, nous invitons le collectif RERQ et Verity Spott à partager leur travail en cours.
 
RERQ est un réseau d’autriX lesbiennes et non binaires basé.e.s à Paris dont les textes sont queer, crus, tendres et explicites. Puisant dans une esthétique de flux qui combine codes pornographiques, protocols de littérature expérimentale et représentation théâtrale, RERQ écrit, lit et performe ce qui est trop peu représenté. RERQ explose les genres tristes et la syntaxe fatiguée, refuse la typographie des corps reconnaissables, et fait irruption dans la littérature officielle. RERQ est un “neon trip” sans fin qui brouille l’expérience individuelle et invoque une voix collective depuis laquelle redire les collisions internes au genre et à la sexualité.
 
Verity Spott est un.e poète basé.e à Brighton dont les textes sont des immersions intensives au sein de personnages et de paysages qui refusent de se conformer à des identités binaires et ses discours autoritaires. Sa poésie est prophétique, musculaire et verbeuse et se déplace en tout lieu où le corps est bâillonné. Ielle est l’auteur.e, entre autres, de Trans
manifesto et Click Away Close Door Say et fait partie d’un groupe de free jazz appelé Threads.

ZOE WILLIAMS: SUNDAY FANTASY
May 25 - Jul 27, 2019
For her first solo exhibition in London, Zoe Williams transforms Mimosa House into a liminal bedroom-like environment which acts as the backdrop for her new film commission ‘Sunday Fantasy’.
 
Incorporating elements from the set of the film, drawing and new ceramic works, as well as cakes designed by the artist to taste, the exhibition focuses on exploring and challenging ideas of fantasy, glamour and role play in relation to sexuality.
 
The project continues the artist’s interest in using a recurrent visual language to implement an irreverent interchange between aspects of eroticism, craft, hedonism and the histories and materialities of artefacts.
 
Generously supported by Arts Council England, GIRLPOWER Collection, Chakrubs, Davydov Bespoke, Mayfair Art Weekend, Forest Recycling Project and Barefoot
