Für Bernd Lohaus [For Bernd Lohaus]
2021

 

Video of the performance
In the frame of the performance series: Aan het woord [Spoken Word]

 

At the invitation of the Coppejans Gallery, artist Marie-Sophie Beinke (b. 1990, Munich) presents a series of performances with contributions by Gerard Herman, Peter Fengler, Mekhitar Garabedian, Fien Maris & Evelin Brosi, Laurence Petrone and Guy Rombouts. The programme is introduced by her own performance, Für Bernd Lohaus [For Bernd Lohaus], during which she will recite poetic writings by Lohaus, selected by Anny De Decker, Stella Lohaus and herself. Over the years, Bernd Lohaus (b. 1940, Düsseldorf) often read to the public from his own texts, as he did on several occasions in Galerie Zeno X for example, on Sundays at 11 a.m. sharp, as though it were a mass. But also: in the Frankfurter Kunstverein, the Van Abbemusem, Galerie Grita Insam in Vienna, Micheline Szwajcer Gallery, the literary café of Galerie Drieghe in Serskamp and LLS 387. Language and words play an important role in the practice of all the artists participating in Aan het woord. They are presenting performances, actions and readings on three Sundays at the end of August and the beginning of September. Beinke asked me to write something on the occasion of this programme because I knew Lohaus well. (She never met him herself; he died in 2010).

 

We are sitting together, brooding. He stubs out an unfiltered cigarette in an unusual ashtray: a perfectly preserved jigsaw piece from someone’s skull, the edges jagged. Then he laughingly recounts one of Gottfried Benn’s images: a nest of young rats living in a little bower under the diaphragm of a girl who had lain long in the rushes. Born just after the start of the Second World War, mum lost on the spot, father an eloquent lawyer, apprenticed to a sculptor of funerary monuments. A mouthful of needles. With language you can hardly learn how to sculpt. You can hardly learn anything with language. Because wherever it is used, it is polluted, flattened, weakened, deboned, hollowed out, empty, air. Language seems to be useful to scheme, to spin, to lie. Whoever wants to act or think has to disrupt language, ignore it, forget it. Whoever wants to write, pushes language to the edge, where it is no longer language, where it becomes potty-mouthed, clumsy, shrill, muscular, naive, sound, letters. 2006. We are still sitting together and brooding. ‘In a little bower above my diaphragm lives a tumour as big as a pigeon’s egg,’ he says. On the drawing table, next to the typewriter, lies a wooden egg. For his first exhibition, El Nascimiento del Huevo [The Birth of the Egg], in Madrid in 1965, he showed a chair, each leg resting on a fresh egg. Eggs were consumed and smashed against sheets of paper hanging on the wall. Four people simultaneously recited the alphabet in four different languages, replacing the letter corresponding to the initial of the language in question with its full name (a, b, c, Deutsch and a, b, c, d, English), so that the original synchronicity degenerated into a kind of canon. There was also an alarm clock that started ringing. Two years later, Lohaus showed rope sculptures and ‘coudrages’ in the New Smith Gallery in Brussels: sculptural drawings or poems made of paper or fabric worked with needle and thread. Little difference between a sewing machine and a typewriter for those who want to think with language and objects. Concrete poetry? All poetry is concrete. ‘Dry yourself dry’, writes Vincent Van Meenen, prying into the hinges of language with a screwdriver. Ringing alarm clocks. Words like hammer blows. Saying something by not saying it. Learning to stumble. Not giving up. Being Frech [impudent].
