Literature, photography, theater

Antoine Jaccoud [CH] & Anne Golaz [CH]

Background work

Je viens du texte, de l’écriture. Anne vient de l’image. A ce stade on pourrait déjà se dire, au risque du cliché d’ailleurs, que nous sommes complémentaires. Mais il y a autre chose. D’abord, nous sommes elle et moi des observateurs. Attentifs certes, mais probablement douloureux, concernés, en retrait ou en quête de médiations et de formes parce que craignant d’être trop proches, de s’en mêler, de perdre une liberté dont rien dans nos enfances respectives, dans l’histoire de nos familles, nous prédestinait à jouir et qu’il a fallu ramer pour conquérir. Ainsi Anne travaillant depuis l’extrême nord de l’Europe à un livre sur sa famille. Ainsi moi écrivant sur la mienne, pas depuis si loin certes, mais en choisissant le théâtre et la scène pour la mettre à distance- sans parvenir toujours à éviter les problèmes d’ailleurs. On pourrait ajouter que nous sommes tous les deux également fascinés - c’est à dire amoureux et dégoûtés- par ce que l’on nomme de ce terme un peu désuet de «rusticité»: c’est à dire la grâce de la société paysanne mais aussi sa violence et ses saletés, organiques mais pas seulement. Nous sommes enfin tous deux voyageurs, hyperactifs, insécures et ambitieux. Ce sont ces travers, ces dispositions que nous allons mettre au service d’un projet qui mobilisera le texte dit et performé, et l’image sous toutes ses formes, pour produire un objet qui, nous le souhaitons, dépassera les limites et limitations de nos domaines respectifs. Ce ne ne sera pas forcément facile. Nous aurons besoin de traducteurs, d’interfaces, de convertisseurs. Nous ne travaillons pas avec la même monnaie en effet. Mais il me semble que le rêve d’un territoire commun et partagé nous habite également. Antoine Jaccoud, mai 2016
