« Translation, Transcription : Oulipian Art, from French to English »
I am currently Leverhulme Artist in Residence at UCL, 2014-2015. I am working on an artistic project in collaboration
with Professor Timothy Mathews of the UCL Department of French, and with UCL Centre for Translation Studies, directed by Jorge Días-Cintas.
I work visually with Oulipian texts and their translations. I transcribe them in paintings, sculptures and installations. Intellectual exchange and discussion with people in UCL is at the heart of the project, it enriches my art and allows me to communicate with a wide audience.
I will post regularly on this blog to share my residency with you and show you the discoveries I make, the people I meet and present my reflexions and progress. I will also post videos of well-known Oulipians, translators, translation scholars, and scholars of the Oulipo movement, as well as specialists of the History of Art.
