Scriptings#40: Entretien sonore avec Fernand Deligny
Rehearsals for a Soundtrack

by Achim Lengerer, with Martin Bross
Realization: Achim Lengerer, Benedikt Bitzenhofer and Peter C. Simon
Production: WDR 2014/ca. 50ĺ
A cooperation between Kolumba, Cologne and
FLACC Workplace for Visual Artists, Genk/BE

A focus on the French pedagogue, writer, and filmmaker Fernand Deligny (1913ľ1996) serves as the departure point for the Achim Lengerer's project. Deligny, a social worker, began his work with children and adolescents in the 1940s. Later, together with young adults he founded a settlement in Southern France in order to live with children with the psychiatric diagnosis of "autism". In his pedagogical work, the goal was not to raise or heal the children entrusted to him. Rather the purpose was to make it possible for children to find alternate paths inside (and outside) this adult living structure, to create for them an environment and field of action so that they might be able to live according to their own ideas of space and time. | Over a period of decades, several film documentaries were made (for example, "Ce gamin, lÓ", 1975, Director: Renaud Victor) for which he wrote accompanying texts and papers on the cinematographic image. Deligny's thoughts on film are revealed in the way that the soundtrack is employed in "Ce gamin, lÓ": Deligny uses the off-voice /voice-over as a (his) literary narrative voice carefully placed parallel with the film image; it is a soundtrack "adapted to fit" the image sequence and which is articulated in the fragile balance to the children's NOT SPEAKING. | The voices of the children and Deligny's language form the two poles of the "Entretien sonore", an acoustic dialogue. The piece takes recourse to the publication Scriptings#26 by Dominique Hurth and Achim Lengerer and constitutes the continuation of an exhibition project, which the artist realized in the summer and fall of 2014 at Kolumba and at FLACC.
