TAKT TALK Battle! Frank Mauceri, USA – Felicie Kertudo, France


with Félicie Kertudo & Frank Mauceri


Félicie Kertudo

Félicie Kertudo is a recent Royal College of Art graduate, where she was enrolled as a MRes Arts & Humanities student, coming from a history and political sciences background. She spent many months exploring the dynamics of Women-Only spaces through a Watery (auto)ethnographic case study of the Kenwood Ladies Pond, Hampstead Heath, London. Using her own diseased Skin as a key interface between her Body and its natural surroundings throughout the research journey, Kertudo calls for a better representation of the diversity of bodily subjectivities. She is focusing on key philosophical theories such as ‘Ecofeminism’, ‘Hydrofeminism’ and ‘Phenomenology’. Her work has been exhibited in art galleries and she has been leading some reading groups and other events.

Frank Mauceri

I formulate experimental systems, processes that leave traces — lines in motion.
I do not know the outcome in advance; rather than make the patterns I want, patterns emerge from the systems I want.

I formulate experimental procedures and construct systems; processes leaving traces that refer to and resist the gestures of drawing.

Beyond their mere existence, these traces invite me – and, I hope, others –
to discover and invent the sense or meaning they have, in the context of the processes that left them.

I am drawn to systems that organize materials at every scale –
where the logic of local actions accumulates to form large scale structure.

Rather than make the patterns I want, patterns emerge from the systems I want.
