Eau Pernice
Backward Singing Performance
presented by Bad Boy Jesus City Swimmers Club

18.03, 06:29 pm

The Bad Boy Jesus City Swimmers Club cordially invites you to a “Backward Singing Performance” by Eau Pernice at GAK Gesellschaft für Aktuelle Kunst in Bremen on Saturday the 18th of March at sundown (18:29 CET). Join us for an evening of reorganized syllables and overlapping verses.

Eau Pernice’s “Backward Singing Performance” series consists of elements that initially identify the piece as a concert. But as soon as the three-part composition is sung backwards any recognizability vanishes. The performances are documented on film and in the postproduction reversed and presented as inversions of the originals. The words in the backwards composition are thereby turned frontwards in the videos, and the songs become decipherable – and perhaps recognizable, as a pop song or hymn – in the afterlife of the performance. In the gap between the work’s two temporally staggered layers, Eau Pernice’s backwards compositions hold an enigmatic promise of meaning.

The Bad Boy Jesus City Swimmers Club has been operating as an antibody moving deliberately in the shadows of outdoor and indoor pools, radio waves and cultural institutions. As an entity with many members and a house of many voices, the club is spreading in every possible direction over the vast flat landscape of our days.

Eau Pernice is a long-time member of the Bad Boy Jesus City Swimmers Club and an artist interested in subversive text writing and compositions for singing voices. Her practice aligns well with the activities of the Swimmers club. Pernice collaborated with the club for a radio broadcasting show called „Sync or Swim“ in 2022. Her first release on the in-house platform for sound experiments called Bad Boy Jesus Tape Club is currently in planning.
