“le nüshu. une écriture secrète, un acte d’indépendance féminine” (jérôme lefebvre)

https://www.facebook.com/groups/76178850228/permalink/10159715061260229/

À Jiangyong, un canton éloigné de la province du Hunan (sud de la Chine), « Nvshu », une écriture syllabique chinoise exclusivement destinée aux femmes, a été inventée il y a des centaines d’années.
Les thèmes abordés en Nvshu étaient étroitement liés à la vie des femmes, couvrant des questions telles que le mariage et la vie de famille, le travail, les interactions sociales, la culture et les divertissements, les coutumes, les croyances religieuses et la moralité. Ils traitaient également d’émotions telles que le bonheur, la colère et le chagrin.
Seule écriture sexuée au monde, Nvshu se caractérise par une police carrée et des traits fins en forme de fourmis. Dans le passé, les messages Nvshu étaient souvent écrits sur des morceaux de papier, des éventails ou des mouchoirs pour transmettre secrètement des informations à d’autres femmes.
Les œuvres de Nvshu sont rares. Les plus anciennes encore datent de la dynastie Ming (1368-1644), car la coutume était de brûler toutes les œuvres de Nvshu de l’écrivaine après sa mort.

letmein / alice edy. 2017

“letmein” [Password Project]: a collection from the top 1000 most common online passwords (from FB, to LinkdIn, to Gmail). These are the words that keep us safe; the language we use to let people in, or keep them out. Painted on the side of the Nelson Mandela Bridge into the Johannesburg CBD, Sept 2017.

§

from https://www.playbraamfontein.co.za/playground/alice-edy/ :

The Password Project was painted below the Nelson Mandela Bridge, on the wall opposite Play’s 62 Juta street in 2017, and  is a collection taken from the top 1000 most common online passwords (from Facebook, to LinkdIn, to Gmail –   ‘letmein’ is the 11th most common online password).

Alice says, “‘Let-me-in’ are the words that keep us safe; the language that we use to protect ourselves, and to keep other people at a distance. The bridge, as a primary artery into central Johannesburg is a site of continual human flow. The project raises questions of access control, asking people to consider how historically, and still today, language has been used as a tool in the regulation of human movement. There is also something semi-mystic about the words that hold this kind of power; a contemporary incarnation of the “Open Sesame” myth.

langrids by differx (2014 – up to now)

I often drawrite “langrids”. A langrid is a grid of language.

I always had in mind Robert Smithson’s A heap of language (1966), or Paul Celan’s Sprachgitter (1959).

In my work, grids and squares and weird geometric shapes collide with pieces of superimposed sentences, asemic bits, other shapes, syllables.
