Unconscious networks, lineages of signs, typewriters, noise, immersion in the mountains, microphones, a garden, coffee, tobacco, salt statue, disruption of neurotic mirroring, schizophrenic salute to the sun, language efficacy fails, silences are fundamental speeches, kidnapping of the future, mining of dreams, suspension of common gestures, one with dreams the other with sound …

From this fictitious list, two immersive traits: “Don’t Eat the Microphone” and “Dreams Mining”. Veridiana Zurita e Fabiane M. Borges open up a conversation about the “creation of contexts” at the intersection between clinical and contemporary art practices.

DON’T EAT THE MICROPHONE is a practice where voicing is in a constant process of emergence and dissolution. We meet in the garden of the Psychiatric Center Dr. Guislain. We are neurotics and psychotics, artists, therapists, residents and outsiders. The invitation is to meet and share time, to hang around in a mode of listening and enunciation, to get suspended by the undoing of pathologies, to make noise, to voice narratives, to continue the other’s thought, gestures or simply to break it apart. Every week we create a context in between psychiatric and artistic institutions. People are welcome to come and go, enter and exit the session.

Veridiana Zurita is an artistic researcher. She proposes situations in which social roles might be suspended, can be twisted and maybe undone for a little while. Be it in the film Script where she and her mother switch roles between the artist and the psychoanalyst, or in the project Don’t Eat The Microphone in which psychiatric patients and artists gather while blurring the borders between normality and abnormality, or in the film Televizinho where she re-enacts Brazilian soap operas together with no-actors, she invests her practice to the undoing of normative roles.

DREAM MINING – Clinic*Art:  This work is based on the current scientific and theoretical speculative discussions about the era of anthropocene/capitalocene/etc and the ‘end of this world we know’, in contrast to alternative futurologies, animism and post colonization fictions. We create immersives dynamic conducted on different techniques of clinic and art. Dreams, cosmogonies, spectrology, production / listening noises, ritual immersion, self-experimentation, gestualization, fictionalization, performing and storytelling are the basic elements of the immersions. We like to create devices of resistance to the kidnapping of the future, as well as to strengthen the imagination and the dreams (Network of unconscious).
