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.

Saturday 27 April, 5-7pm

Théodora Domenech and sabrina soyer have been organising Salons in Paris since 2016, aiming to gather feminist artists & poets who use writing as matter in their art, and present subjective aspects of the historical relationship between discourses and power, language and borders, norms and discriminations, gender and genre. Many of the artists invited to these Salons play with translation in their works, writing in “their foreign language”, or inventing new languages based on inclusive writing and non binary forms of beings and becoming.

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 Trans*manifestos 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.
