BIOS

DAVID ANTIN Poète, critique d’art, linguiste et performance artist, David Antin est né en 1932 à New York et vit depuis 1968 à San Diego en Californie. Depuis 1971, à l’invitation de musées ou d’universités, David Antin improvise des talk poems qui entrelacent le récit, la conférence, l’anecdote, le monologue, la méditation et le dialogue philosophique. On a dit de lui qu’il était « un mélange de Mark Twain et de Gertrude Stein », « un croisement de Lenny Bruce et de Ludwig Wittgenstein ». Par des digressions en cascade, au gré de réflexions sur le contexte immédiat, sur l’art, les institutions, la société, la mémoire, ou le langage, un discours se construit, se déploie, dérive et s’observe, tandis qu’Antin parcourt imperceptiblement son motif.
On trouve en traduction en France plusieurs livres de David Antin dont:
*Ce qu’être d’avant-garde veut dire*, trad. Broqua Brossard Lang, Presses du réel, 2008.
*Je n’ai jamais su quelle heure il était*, trad. Pascal Poyet, Héros Limite, 2008.
Et, tout dernièrement, *John Cage sans cage*, édité par Abigail Lang, trad. Claire Delamarre et Abigail Lang, Motion Method Memory / Presses du Réel, 2011. [http://www.lespressesdureel.com/ouvrage.php?id=2031&menu=]

DAVID ANTIN   Poet, performance artist, art and literary critic internationally known for his « talk pieces » — improvisational blends of comedy, story and social commentary. New Directions has published three books of these « talk pieces » — TALKING AT THE BOUNDARIES (1976), TUNING (1984), and WHAT IT MEANS TO BE AVANT-GARDE (1993).  TUNING was awarded the prize for poetry for 1984 by the PEN Center of Los Angeles.  Much of his earlier poetry was collected in SELECTED POEMS 1963-1973 published by Sun and Moon Press in 1991.  He has performed at the Whitney Museum, the Guggenheim, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Getty Center in the U.S. at the Centre Pompidou and the Musée d’Art Moderne in Paris.  He has designed SKYPOEMS, short texts he describes as « commercials that aren’t selling anything, » that have been skytyped over Los Angeles and San Diego, designed WORD WALKS for urban parks, an ongoing electronic poem for an airport and performed both improvised and scripted verbal works for radio and television. He has published criticism in most major art and literary journals, and his work has been written about in THE POETICS OF INDETERMINACY, Marjorie Perloff (Princeton, 1981); THE OBJECT OF PERFORMANCE, Henry Sayre (Chicago, 1989); THE JAZZ TEXT, Charles O. Hartman (Princeton, 1991). An extensive interview with him has been published in SOME OTHER FREQUENCY: INTERVIEWS WITH INNOVATIVE AMERICAN AUTHORS, ed. Larry McCaffery, U. Penn. 1996. The Review of Contemporary Fiction devoted its Spring 2001 issue to his work. Dalkey Archive recently republished his 1972 book talking (originally published by Kulchur Foundation) with a Preface by Marjorie Perloff and a Postface by David Antin.   Granary Books recently published A Conversation with David Antin, the text of a 3 month email conversation between David Antin and Charles Bernstein. A new collection of talk pieces I NEVER KNEW WHAT TIME IT WAS was published by U.C. Press (spring 2005) and Singing Horse Press has published a new small book — JOHN CAGE UNCAGED IS STILL CAGEY.  RADICÅL COHERENCY, his Selected Essays 1966-2005 has just been published by the University of Chicago Press.  He spent the Winter of 2002 as a Fellow at the Getty Research Insitute.
