This Monday, at the exhibition opening,
the actor Ross Tomlinson
will read several texts by Oulipo writers:
Marcel Benabou’s Les Chats (as well as Baudelaire’s poem), extracts from Paul Fournel’s Need of the bike and Hervé le Tellier’s Electrico W.
I am delighted that Ross, who is also a student at the French Department, has agreed to participate!
Not only is he a very good actor, but his French is brilliant, and he will be reading in French and English.
This was a major issue as the project is all about the differences between both languages, and it also makes it easier for the audience to understand what Oulipo writing is about and how I worked on the translations of the texts.
Vernissage Monday May 18th at 6pm.
