A pesquisa (in)finita das coisas - Georges Perec e a arte do desimportante
Keywords in Portuguese

Georges Perec
Literatura francesa
Abstract in Portuguese
Esta pesquisa trata de reconhecer e localizar na obra do escritor francês Georges Perec (1936-1982) o que instiga uma produção significativa ligada à Arte Contemporânea por meio do diálogo com três artistas: Arman, Joe Brainard e Édouard Levé. A parte da sua obra que interessa à pesquisa é aquela fixada no real, no espaço, nos lugares, nos rituais e procedimentos repetitivos, no cotidiano e nas coisas materiais que constroem um mundo de desimportâncias um mundo comum que serve de pano de fundo às ações diárias do banal urbano. A pesquisa está dividida em três capítulos, cada um deles centrado numa maneira particular de agrupar as coisas: no primeiro, dedicado à acumulação, procura-se diferenciar a coisa do objeto e identificar como os valores da sociedade de consumo se apresentam nas obras de Perec e de Arman; no segundo, dedicado à coleção, o interesse são as coisas comuns, o cotidiano indistinto, e a formulação de regras que ajudam Perec e Joe Brainard a compor um sentido para seus fragmentos de lembranças; já no terceiro e último capítulo, é o arquivo que guarda documentos, resultado de projetos de seus criadores, que vai permitir a Perec e a Édouard Levé encararem seus não-lugares para revelar o que acontece quando não acontece nada.

Abstract in English
This research aims at recognizing and locating, in the work of the French writer Georges Perec (1936-1982), some of the elements of his production that can be seen as significantly linked to Contemporary Art. This process of recognizing and location will be take shape through the dialogue with three artists: Arman, Joe Brainard and Édouard Levé. The part of Perecs work that interests this research is the one grounded in reality, in the urban space, in places, rituals and repetitive procedures, in everyday life and in material things that make up a world of irrelevance - a common world that serves as background to the daily actions we see in ordinary urban life. This research is divided into three chapters, each one of them focusing on a particular way of grouping things: the first one which is dedicated to the accumulation, tries to differentiate the concept of thing from the notion of object and identify how the values of consumer society appear in the works of Perec and Arman; the second chapter, which is dedicated to the collection focuses on shared things, on the indistinctive aspect of everyday life, and on the formulation of rules that help Perec and Joe Brainard make sense of the fragments of their memories; now, in the third and final chapter, it is the file (which results from the artists projects) that will allow Perec and Édouard Levé to envisage their non-places to reveal what happens when nothing happens.
