Roses: Francoise & Daniel Cartier

128 pag, 10.5 x 8.1 x 0.5 inches, Arthur Niggli; Multilingu edition (December, 2006)

An enchanting valentine of photograms images made by placing an object on light-sensitive paper, exposing it to light and then fixing the image. Playing, perhaps, with the implications of the nuanced shades of pink created by the process, Swiss artists Francoise and Daniel Cartier have produced a subversive bouquet of “roses” including images of women’s lace panties and brassieres, clothing and even locks of hair and jewelry. Other works included in this retrospective collection are black and white photos and x-ray-style images, some catalyzed by a sculptural work, all combining into a surprising body of work commenting on the concepts of purity and impurity. Commentary by Martin Gasser, Michael Stauffer and Sylvie Henguely.

First of all, I hate captions.
“Oggi a me,  domani a te” ( “Today me, tomorrow you” ) is simply an inscription on  the gates of a cemetery beneath the Barchi Tower.
The tower is  the most emblematic sign of the ninth century saracen invasion of the  Alta Val Tanaro, a remote corner of north-western Italy.
The place name, Eca Nasagò, is derived from two arabian phoenemes meaning “ferocious” and “battlefield”.
It’s in Ormea: a small village on the outskirts of the Piedmontese mountains, it stands above the Ligurian coastline.
Ulmosciu, the local dialect, is a weird mix of Piedmontese, Ligurian, Arabian, German and French.
There are no similar languages in the area.
For example, the train comin’ from the plain in ulmosciu is “sbrivotzu”.
Meanwhile the train goin’ down the valley is “scuriatzu”.
I’ve used these two rare, unique words, connecting to southern Italian traditions.
In fact, at the start of the piece, my pronunciation is Neapolitan.
And I’m talkin’ about “A’ livella”, a poem wrote by Totò, one of the greatest actors of the twentieth century.
So deeply ancient, early Christian-like, a marvel of our popular literature.
It’s about death as a spirit level for everybody; rich and poor.
The whole track is a representation of chaos, and of the entropic energy on planet earth.
“La merce perfetta” is made of circles and spirals.
I’ve taken the  most bitter phrases of Alberto Camerini’s “Droga”, a cut-up that I sing  in the first verses as a vocal poem then as a soul song.
And by the way, It’s not about the meaning of the lyrics, but rather the sound of the words.
Using the voice in this way serves to introduce the second stanza: overtunes, glossolalia, falsettos, scat, blues, etc.
What I’ve sung is assaulting me from the inside.
The last part, the third one, is about sound perception. Therefore we have a drone, a low-pitched bass and glitchings.
The singing is  free improvisation, a fifteen minute take one. It’s not perfect (who  cares?) but it’s imbued with emotion, so groovy.
The only way to finish the number before getting lost in DPOAEs…
But at this point you’re as well just to listen.(EnomisossaB)
