Lili M. Rampre & Julia Subrios Rubies (SLO, ESP)
Pop-fiThe video installation Pop-fi is an extension of Lili M. Rampre‘s artistic research on the topic of the audience and their co-creation of the artistic discourse. For years she has been questioning the audiences’ perception of authorship and the artistic process. The questions “What is artistic literacy” and “How is an artistic discourse co-created with the audience?” are connected to author’s curiosity for the autonomy of responsiveness in which she is especially interested in border cases of conventional reaction: for example a scream which is an answer to the expectations of the artists hyper-articulation, the artistic disobedience of the audience and the status of the voice and what is heard in the performance art practices.
In the Pop-fi video installation M. Rampre and her collaborator Rubies Subiros do not think about the artistic discourse via quantitative methods of humanistic studies concerning the analysis of the interviews with the audience which could provide an insight into the language that said audience uses when they address the question of dance, but rather look at the language as a live form that is used in the circle of various practitioners – dancers, dance pedagogues, art researchers and such.
The authors use the epic form of narration as a self-irony translation of the dance theory, dance trends, clichés, the specifics of dance communities, and their representations in popular culture. For ventriloquizing their concerns of a wide range through materials of popular culture they are using techniques such as appropriation, dubbing, comic resources, performance, and poetry. Through the process of collective re-writings of a script and their re-enactment, common struggles are not only shared and acknowledged, but also reframed and can, therefore, be approached anew.The video, in this case, emphasizes the necessary contrast between formal ideas and their actual use, the vernacularity of them. With epic figures and tropes, such as hero, hero's journey, overcoming tasks, finding a treasure, fighting binary forces, and the dichotomous traits, the artists address literacy issues and the accessibility of dance discourse as well as the figure of the expert. To whom are the archives of dance practice intended and how can it be read without intermediaries, or what implications/consequences does it bear for pedagogy, dissemination of dance knowledge, techniques, culture in the future?

Meet the resident LILI M. RAMPRE
LILI M. RAMPRE graduated in Physics at the Faculty of Education in Maribor, and continued her dance education at the Frankfurt Academy of Music and Performing Arts. Since 2010 she has been actively involved as a choreographer, performer and teacher, both in her own work and in the work of others. After completing a post-master at a.passu (Centre for Practices of Artistic Research), she spent a year developing her own work at the Choreographic Research Cycle of the Anne Therese de Keersmaeker School, P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels.
Her work deals with formats aimed at the public and interrogates the spectator's perception of authorship and the artistic process. The questions "What is artistic literacy?" and "How is artistic discourse co-constructed with the audience?" coincide with the artist's interest in the autonomy of responsiveness, where she particularly explores borderline cases of the conventionality of response: the scream as a response to the expectations of the artist's hyper-articulation, the audience's artistic disobedience, and the status of the voice and the heard in performance practices such as dance and dance pedagogy.
InterestSafari: Audiences in public spaceMonday, 23. 12. 2019, 16:00;
Meeting point: Main Square
With this year's resident Lili M. Rampre and art historian Simon Žlahtič, we will explore and get to know the places related to the theme of audience in public space. Audiences can be active or not, it can be critical or not. It can be obedient, or it can be not. Maribor has a long history, and over time it has been shaped by both. We will visit places of mass manifestations, demonstrations and public speeches. We will look for architectural remains and indicators of such activity and question the positions of the audience and the performers on the other side.
Everyone could join us on the Interest Safari and share with us, either memories from the Maribor uprisings or a story from the distant past.
