Brigitte Kloareg and Lætitia Paviani
Sunday 17 November 2019, 3 p.m.
Lætitia Paviani, Eleven Thousand Old Ladies, reading‑performance
This text is the second part of a speculative novel using the very 19th-century notion of serial publication.
Its title is borrowed from Guillaume Apollinaire’s Onze mille verges/Eleven Thousand Cocks, itself inspired by Jacques de Voragine’s Onze mille vierges/Eleven Thousand Virgins. Both Apollinaire and Paviani resort to a blend of the epic and the teasingly comical.
The first part of Paviani’s text was published in December 2017 as an insert in Pierre Paulin’s journal Oom oom, uhm uhm, in response to his Boom boom, run run and his exhibition of the same name at Frac Île-de-France, le Plateau.
