Performance artist Claire Serres from Paris is, following Sol Rezza, the next recipient of the Radio Art Residency, a cooperation between Radio Corax and the Goethe-Institut, starting in September 2018.
What does it mean to identify with a voice?
Within the course of the three-month residency, Claire Serres will explore the human voice in the medium of radio: What does it mean to speak on the radio? To be identified with a voice, to represent a voice? The artist looks for answers in the varied and democratic free radio. With body and voice as her tools, Claire Serres will undertake a radiophonic metamorphosis, broadcasting her embodiment of the radio.
Performance is a mindset, an appearance, an error.
Claire Serres works as an editor for the free Radio Fréquence Paris Plurielle 106.3 FM and since 2000 as a performance artist. She realizes her artworks in the public space using video, sound, radio and the internet amongst other media, and has previously been featured at documenta 14 Radio (2017), Museum for Modern and Contemporary Art Strasbourg (2016), Art’s Birthday SWR/E‑WerkFreiburg (2014), and Akademie der Bildenden Künste Wien (2011).
