Mark Geffriaud: The Curve of Forgotten Things

Francesco Pedraglio and Gavin Everall

Another fascinating narrative experience from the seminal Time Machine series, edited by Francesco Pedraglio. Paris-based artist Mark Geffriaud takes the reader and writer on two opposite journeys, from the preface and in reverse from the “postface.” Where the sections meet halfway, the reader finds a discussion with an anthropologist about a ceremonial dialogue between two people of a Jivaroan tribe, in which the two participants barely listen to each other but speak almost from the other’s point of view, creating a rhythm, and a game. The slippages, gestures, duality and rhythms are replayed in the framing sections in which two voices appear, drift apart into two columns, run parallel then syncopated, before slowly merging again.
