Les Temps Morts | Dead Times





René Laloux | 1964
Drawings by Roland Topor
Narrator (voice) Roland Dubillard 
English subtitles



What is man ? Man makes war, man kills man, man hunts, man is executed. A montage mixing original drawings by Topor, original shots and stock shots that ironically analyze what man is.

A shot of a planet, footage of Asian children playing in the streets with guns, then footage of war. It switches to illustrations, black and white pen & ink drawings the camera moves over, people in various states of undress and dismemberment. A man rides a dead horse, the horse's front and hind legs being carried by two other men, following a man with a castle for hair. Back to actual footage, snorkelers fishing, riflery, bullfighting, men and women in the act of stabbing and shooting, a woman in lingerie inhabiting a house made out of suitcases that each jail men's decapitated heads... photographs of people being guillotined, hung, beheaded, electrocuted.

ANNIE LE BRUN

"Apostrophes" - 04/10/1988
Bernard PIVOT accueille Annie LE BRUN pour son livre "Appel d'air" dans lequel elle défend avec virulence la poésie. Sur le plateau, elle critique la poésie actuelle trop réaliste et qui, depuis 20 ans, marque la fin du rêve et de l'utopie. Pour elle, la poésie est une façon d'être et la haine de celle-ci est synonyme de haine de l'homme. Bernard PIVOT lit un extrait de cet ouvrage puis présente des livres sur le surréalisme.

IRA COHEN


Ira Cohen - (February 3, 1935 – April 25, 2011) poet, publisher, photographer and filmmaker

“I’d like to say something more perfect about Vali, that would actually shed light on her beauty and how
important she is to me. She’s really a great artist, and she’s always followed her own star, which is to me
the most important thing. Especially when you’re talking about authenticity, a word which doesn’t have a
lot of play in the art world. For me Vali is both a great artist and a great person, absolutely unique. Anyone
who has ever seen her or knows her can tell that. But she herself is her greatest work of art. I never really
saw her when she was drawing, although I have a tiny doodle she made on an envelope and gave me
which I put in a little frame.”

“Perhaps the Armenian carving elephants
on a human hair between heartbeats
can tell you better why you were born
at midday during a storm

or what the Moroccan is thinking
in the asylum
Perhaps he can tell you why the best
sailors can’t swim or how to freeze

two perfect tears on a Chinese face
Perhaps the fox holding an egg
in her mouth can tell you better
how red conquered the rain
or how the blue line curves

around the nipple & I am sure
that the hound knows better

the meaning of the maidenhair fern
or the secrets of lavender under pillows
But only the harpooned whale
can tell you as he turns, rising

to the sun

how much he hates your blue green eyes,
how much a whale’s heart weighs

when it is finally undone.

”
— Ira Cohen, poem for Vali Myers





Allen Ginsberg, Life Mask

“Part of Ira Cohen’s Bandaged Poets series, which first began when Ira met his second wife Caroline
Gosselin in Amsterdam in the late 1970s. Gosselin had been making ‘life masks’ and Ira began
photographing the process of bandaging all the noted poets that crossed their path. Cohen had originally
published Ginsberg in Gnaoua in 1964. Cohen would later wryly comment that Allen Ginsberg made sure
New York City wasn’t big enough for two bearded Jewish poets”










Ira Cohen - Bom Shankar, an ascetic of the Aghori sect

Joyce Mansour – Phallus et momies (1969)


J'ai suivi la route parallèle
Derrière le tulle des ténèbres
Entre les cuisses de mes aïeux
Darde la langue hébraïque
L'art commence où le désir finit
Mate et sale
Sans haleine
Fasce d'argent sur champs de gueules
J'ai crevé dans ma peau
Ainsi qu'une enflure bleuâtre dans la boue
Saturne fait usage de son dard
Pour stimuler son appétit
La mort peut être nécessaire
Aux autres
Je haie les satisfaits
Les stériles les nantis
Un mort suit l'autre sans connaître son visage
Une femme traverse les rails
En sang en sang ensanglantée
Personne ne la voit personne dans
L'ascenseur
Le jaune insoutenable d'une voix de canari
Mélange d'arsenic et de colle
Relie les côtes aux barreaux et ne laisse point
D'espace pour l'oiseau
Tout cassé
Briser l'image du pénis paternel
Lové comme un serpent dans un vase de Gallé
Écrasé sa tête sous un talon d'acier
(Un vague sentiment de retour
Vagit dans le ravin
Passer outre)
Il faut rire en montant les marches de la vieille maison
Éventrer les acteurs égrenant leurs bigoteries
Haïr les fébriles égorgé les assis
Déraciner les morts assoupis dans leurs excréments
Avaler cracher
Oublier maudire
La chair bêlante
Huileuse comme un lit défait
Il faut mastiquer éjaculer
Boucher les orifices
Replâtrer l'hymen
La mort est une porte-tambour
Un œuf saponaire un croupion
Il faut dégonfler le chancre sur la face divine
La détruire
Pissez fontaines
La vie hibernante des glaciers gonfle vos toisons de pierre
Vos clitoris s'écaillent
Ainsi que des crocodiles implantés dans le sable frais
Mort aux veules
Mort aux vrilles
Mort aux habitués de l'utérus
Mort aux isolés debout
Il y a du sparadrap sur la blessure de la vigne
Et une route parallèle à celle
Qui n'existe
Plus.

SIMÓN DEL DESIERTO (Luis Buñuel, 1965)


Simon of the Desert
Simon du désert
Réalisateur : Luis Bunuel
Auteur : Julio Alejandro
Acteurs : Calude Brook, Enrique Alvarez Felix, Hortensia Santovena, Francisco Reiguera,
Luis Aceves Castaneda, Enrique Garcia Alvarez, Silvia Pinal
Producteur : Producciones Gustavo Alatriste
Simon le stylite médite sur sa colonne, dans le désert, depuis six ans, six semaines et six jours. Il résiste aux tentations du monde (une colonne plus élevée), de la chair (une meilleure nourriture), mais part ensuite avec le diable (une femme) dans une boîte de nuit de Manhattan.

43.12 minute film made in 1965. More than a mere parody of Christian fetishism, it's a critique of existentialism and post-modern nihilism. Simon ends up as a jaded poet in 1960s New York, incapable of being moved by the vibrant life around him. The first Simon of the Desert, Simon the Stylite (d. 459), was a 4th Century e.v. Christian fetishist who, for forty years, sat atop a fifty-foot pole outside of Antioch and engaged in a variety of self-abusive behaviors that, in typical Christian doublethink fashion, were interpreted as signs of his holiness. Buñuel's film is set in the middle-ages, and Buñuel's Simon seems to have faithfully imitated his predecessor's religious fetishes in what today would be considered extreme sado-masochistic performance art. Throughout Buñuel's Simon of the Desert, the devil attempts to seduce Simon with her sex, first as a tarty little girl, then as a seductress trapped inside a coffin, and finally as an androgynous Greek-like figure who bares her breasts. In Buñuel's film, Simon makes a man's severed hands reappear. Almost as soon as Simon performs the miracle, the man proceeds to hit his daughter on the head for asking him if they are the same hands he had before. It's a funny sequence, for sure, but Buñuel uses it to suggest that self-serving, fanatical Christians take God for granted. Simon loves everyone in the film equally, even the prancing priest with the offensively tidy frock who condescends to a dwarf with a questionable relationship to a goat named Domitila, but that doesn't stop the man from advising the priest to abandon his classist tendencies. "Your asceticism is sublime," says someone to Simon at one point. The same could be said about Buñuel's no-frills aestheticism. Unlike the expensive desires of the bourgeois and the gaudy outfits often worn by priests at Sunday service, Buñuel shunned all things extravagant, and it shows in his images.

JEAN-PIERRE DUPREY - DE MAINS ET DE LUNES


De rien qui trompe et qui tord
À rien de moi s'endort,
De moi s'endort, le rangement de la douleur
Pliée à l'ombre de ma peur ;
Est-ce ici que je rêve des morts ?

Une main au crépuscule dont je m'endors,
Dont je m'endors,
Prendra le temps de tout un voyage des terreurs
Qui payera le prix d'un tissu de chaleur
Jeté devant les voleurs
Pour m'envelopper dans ce que je rêve des morts.
