Nomadic camp of night goblins performing a sound ritual, hanging test
in an abandoned workshop. natural materials mixed fabrics dyed with earth and rust,
tampered ready-mades. sculpted objects and charcoal drawings/rescoes
The term Waaaagh is borrowed from the vocabulary of the "Warhammer" world,
a video and board game.
The installation mixes sculptures,
drawings, paintings, prints, doctored ready-mades and raw materials to
create a place thought as a stage for performances and rituals.
It is composed of different fragments of places, stories, beliefs and
personal memories. It conjures up disparate eras, myths, characters and
realities. Current and real digital dimensions are juxtaposed.
The "small ppz before the waaaagh" is a nomadic camp dedicated to the
fiobelins of the night, mythical beings known as thieves, plunderers and
pirates. The installation serves as a venue for a public performance,
built on the basis of a role-playing game where participants take part in
a ritual (a before) and a great esoteric celebration (the waaaagh).
Participants and actors in costume live together in this space.
The staging of the evening gave indications, references and roadmaps to
the audience and participants before the performance. Mark Leckey's video
"Under Under in" served as a starting point for this collective moment.
It invited us to think of a place in its magical character, to summon
memories of a place, tinged with nostalgia, adolescent beliefs, how to
appropriate a place and how to exorcise it. Embodying the fioblin allows
us to blur the lines and destroy the figure of the author (sampling) in a
world where we are continually traced and identified by mobile data and
commercialised data without our consent.
