Misunderstanding is a way to reveal and to create other realities: to hear and imagine something other; to interpret differently; to juxtapose perceptions; to resist to what is given or said; to build up parallel temporalities. It is the stakes of poetry, of counterpoint, of resistance, of uncertainty, of alternatives and of fictions. Marcos Simoes and Pauline Brun think of misunderstandings in this project as something to be considered, something valuable. They see it both as a visual and a choreographic tool more than a subject of work.
What if the misunderstanding is the origin, the starting point of the project? The mechanism by which we produce and create? And that defines situations and relationships to work with?
Marcos Simoes & Pauline Brun were joined in this project by a fortunate misunderstanding and they have decided to embrace it by turning it into the tool and the purpose that ties them in this collaboration.
Tie-Tool are detached pieces that can be separated form each other and become performative objects by themselves. Tie-Tool can be extended by adding new extensions to the original format. Tie-Tool can eventually also be re-organized, by changing order and recomposing these detached materials.
These extensions and detached versions are ways to rethink formats of presentation and their interpretation in relation to the different contexts.
Tie-Tool can change form, place and time.
