Voices from Les Brigittines

Director Patrick Bonté, Les Brigittines and Editions de l’Œil d’or is behind the publication of the book titled Librescommedemain nous l’apprendra. An intriguing book that revolves around everything that has inspired Brigittines’ current activities – on the occasion of the 360th anniversary of the beautiful chapel.

In total, 17 different artists have contributed with texts addressing their work and their worldviews – complemented by contributions from performers, playwrights, philosophers, and writers who, to the same extent as the artists, are – or have been – a part of Les Brigittines.

One of these was written by Kitt Johnson. Read more about the publication here

Imagine your cerebrospinal fluid seeping down your spinal cord

Imagine it oozing from the pelvic horsetail into vast intracellular territories

Imagine it slowly making its way to the silvery streams, creeks and rivers of your body

Now let’s assume that you are a piece of nature
and as such inextricably linked to the planet

Let’s assume that you are a sub-organism of the planetary body
and as such, subject to its metabolism

Let’s assume that your fluids flow seamlessly with that of the planet
and thus in incessant flow with the planetary body

Now imagine that you travel along those connecting canals. You navigate in time and space, past and present. You travel with caution in this borderless realm of matter. You cover immeasurable distances. You map out what needs mapping. And you try to mend what needs mending.

My artistic practice is centered on the aspiration of becoming a vessel, navigating between realities, materialities and states of being – subterranean, submarine, subconscious and sometimes subversive. It is cross-disciplinary, cross-country and sometimes just cross.

I, myself, a mere passenger.
