Quelque chose de la performativité

Karina Pawlikowski


Quelque chose de la performativité by Karina Pawlikowski is presented in the salle Jean-Pierre Latour.

Quelque chose de la performativité is a chapter that was initially published in the fall of 2020 as part of the research-creation MFA thesis De L’écriture et de la voix : le glissement d’une exposition at Université du Québec en Outaouais. This textual excerpt, which was modified and adapted for the event PERF (Ré)agir / (Re)act, revisits  the performance Crever ses eaux that was held on October 3, 2012 in the AXENÉO7 exhibition rooms. At the exact time, I was thirty-nine weeks and six days into my pregnancy.
