Big Bang Memorial

BY GAËLLE LE GUILLOU
@ VOL 9 ON DEC 02, 2014

Pechakucha was the opportunity for Gaëlle Le Guillou to speak about her deep project: it is an artistic and experimental project at long term in the cemetery of Bouteillerie in Nantes.
This project is supported by the association BIG BANG MEMORIAL. The idea of this association is to take a fresh look at the intimate and common that are cemeteries.

Ceramist Sculptrice, she chooses this material because she can imagine forms and volumes .
She experiments with coloured enamels, textures, by renewing regularly her themes of inspirations.
She draws her inspiration from her childhood, from fashionably, architecture, arts, and nature.
She creates her universe, fanciful and in movement, even if it is about the death.
That is characteristic in her work, and her life. {in french}

Deanne the Hooper

Not only did Tokyo-based "hooper" Deanne introduce the art of hooping -- that's right folks, it's no longer about the "hula" anymore -- to a captivated crowd at PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 61, she capped her presentation with a brilliant display of her art for the audience. If you're new to hooping, than you'll find out all you need to know from Deanne's Hooplovers website -- she gives classes on top of performing regularly. For those in attendance, we were treated to a very clear approach to the topic: the presentation was built as a series of answers to FAQs. The photos of Deanne's performance come courtesy of Masao Tamaoki.

Reexamining an Abandoned Amusement Park, Teaching Kids How to Deal with Disabilities, and Guerilla Projecting in Providence

Presentations A presentation (from PKN Miami Vol. 15) by Anthony Spinello and Augustina Woodgate about a project in Berlin called Kulturpark, taking place in an abandoned amusement park. Here's more on the project from the official website:In the Treptower Park forest in East Berlin, along the Spreeriver, there is an abandoned amusement park. The park, originally called Kulturpark Planterwald, was built in 1969 by the GDR and was a rare site for Soviet amusement and attraction. After the fall of the wall, the park became the family-owned Spreepark and suffered challenges of access, attendance, and economy. In 2001, the park closed from capital collapse. Ever since, visitors have regularly traversed the fence to explore this jungle of broken thrill machines. In June 2012, Kulturpark will explore the poetics and potential of these recent ruins, building upon the unique energy of Berlin’s urban, social, cultural, and political landscapes.Marina Potanina is the president of a charity foundation called To Kids About Kids. In her presentation (in Russian, from PKN Moscow Vol. 12) she talks about the project, and the creation of an animated series about school life for a group of kids, with one of the main characters being a girl in a wheelchair. In Russia, there are no books, TV, or other examples of adequate communication with people with disabilities. Marina believes that if we start by talking to kids about these issues, that our society will be changed. Posters We end the week with a Tumblr blog update that includes quite a few older posters: PKN Beirut Vol. 11 (pictured above), PKN Sevilla Vol. 9 and 11, PKN Jakarta Vol. 10, PKN New Orleans Vol. 4, PKN Chicago Vol. 18, PKN Louisville Vol. 1, PKN Dublin Vol. 1, PKN Christchurch Vol. 3, PKN The Hague Vol. 5, PKN Victoria Vol. 3-6, PKN Huddersfield Vol. 1, and PKN Los Angeles Vol. 28. Photos We spotted this photo (by Twitter user @parulia, who was attending her first PKN) taken at this past Wednesday's PKN Providence Vol. 41 -- we sure love the guerilla nature of the venue and projection wall.  Calendar There's just one event tonight (August 31), with Kumamoto hosting its Vol. 4. Then, you can look to Saturday for the following two events: PKN Hyderabad Vol. 10 and PKN Kathmandu Vol. 6.

PKN Posters: Knoxville Vol. 7

Artist Amos Oaks discusses his thoughts on the poster he cooked up for PKN Knoxville Vol. 7: "...The snake handlers of our region have a deep passion that takes them beyond what some may see as normal.  Their devotion moves them to take a scripture literally, face death, and come out unscathed.  In my opinion this gives them vision to take on another day. That's what anyone's vision does.  It propels them to live another day - to grab death by the neck and hang on for dear life." Check out the full explanation on PKN Knoxville's blog. Volume 7 will be held this coming Wednesday, April 24th at 6pm.  To see more great posters from PechaKucha Nights all over the world, check out our Tumblr blog.

The Debatable Lands

"You can see how there is an emotional tie to the land and for a lot of people the idea of having a much more solid border going through their landscape was quite a horrific thought."
