Corine Lemieux
From April 18th 2003 to May 24th 2003
Et glisser en cours de route

To move in a continuous motion, voluntary or not, on a surface or along another body, both parts maintaining contact. To improvise as we go, and wander through existence, with no predetermined destination. To project oneself forward, at every step, then take another, not minding where it lands.To develop a quality of attention for listening to the word that slips into the ear, delighting in the smile that slips across the lips, penetrating beyond surfaces with one's gaze, letting oneself be led by events, without fear. To lay down arms, cease trying to gain ground. To let power slip through our fingers, but not let judgment slip between us.

Sideslip. Losing control. To let oneself go and slip away, hand in hand. The world's slippage toward other forms inevitably begins with individual transformation and finds its true effects in our interactions, as they are embodied in our gestures and dialogue. To look into the present and take a sixtieth of a second's fragment, reflected by my camera's mirror, to reflect on my objectives, my intentions, and my desires. To reflect what is there, wherever I am. Thus accounting for a certain reality that sometimes escapes us. To collect a series of traces, day after day, as in a journal, to give back what in itself belongs to everybody. To take life in photographs as one takes life in hand.
Arrange a space to give oneself time.
Slipping to go from one form to another.
