Lili Reynaud Dewar: Speaking of Revolt, Media and Beauty
With Pierre Giquel & Lili Reynaud Dewar
Featuring Un Chant d’Amour, A film by Jean Genet
CINACT: Serpentine Cinema presents Speaking of Revolt, Media & Beauty, a new film performance by Lili Reynaud Dewar at The Gate Cinema.
The performance takes as its starting point a series of sculptures by the artist Four Walls Speaking of Revolt Media and Beauty dedicated as an anti-monument to the work of poet, philosopher and activist Jean Genet. It is the final performance in a trilogy of the same name, the first part presented at Nottingham Contemporary and the second at Tramway in 2011.
Using props from the sculptures and featuring Genet’s film Un Chant d’Amour, Reynaud Dewar will perform alongside French poet Pierre Giquel, who was Reynaud-Dewar’s teacher at art school, translating his words against the backdrop of a recent film focusing on Genet’s politics and aesthetics.
