l honneur de timur inquests on our perception of result.
transformations of cloth initiated through landscape and somatic procedures present themselfes as metaphors:
the power of oneself from thought to hand- from the imaginary to the grabable.
A concept that involves reality within the possible. A naturalistic take on project base.
performative action upon rough silk results in traces to witness later in time, in signs that rest as if to prove its story : change in texture, colour, shape and condition due to long durational physical engagement with natural surroundings
Bourette de soie, the roughest of all silks, is the means that is incoperated in given landscapes. The interplay is a procedure consisting of the combination of performative activity and contact with natural environment, resulting directly into creations whose history is traceable.
The idea is to give ground for communal activity and to initiate transformations within frames of the site specifique now. Journeys as of proposing engagement
Results as of creation
have human effort and time in common.
one off events, so far held in paris, berlin and london, showcase these procedures and its final outcomes. Insights are provided by creating representational installations.
There the efforts' transmissions - as in documents, as of the making- are being shared through video pieces featuring aspects of the journey that brought the transformation upon the cloth. These moving images in real time duration aim at delivering visual aspects of truth. the viewer plunges into the cloths history and includingly in to our past.
Surpassing representation- allowing processes to be witnessed live :
Aiming at 'closer to feel' l honneur de timur has taken the impressions further by putting forward musicians that engage with its poetry through sound collaborations. The german experimental group 'blue in the face' interpreted written works that arose during the moscow procedures at the showcase in paris. Furthermore they were taking it to another level of longduration and additional base at the showcase in berlin. During 'london act' a collaboration between l honneur de timur and the painter arunas survila has conquered new grounds by combining interests and skills- live alteration of textile through mouvement within a sculptural set up involving the audience.
due to this very live creation on site the layout of review has broken down and became accessable, witnessable and participative.
